Review by lostmypebblesandmarbles

lostmypebblesandmarbles I was not at this show and i haven't yet heard the whole performance. I'm writing this for one reason :GARDEN PARTY ! It's like this, Phish are my favorite band(BIG surprise huh) and not to get heavy but to be honest, my father played guitar in the Stone Canyon Band(Rick Nelson's band) from 1979-1985. They were a really close group and as tight as you can get on stage. Sadly, my father along with the rest of the band died in a plane crash on 12-31-1985. New Year's Eve for me has always been kinda "off" for that reason. Over the years i've felt that Rick Nelson and his band have been overlooked in the musical scheme of things. I was sitting at home on 12-31-2012 when a friend of mine messaged me that "Garden Party" was "HAPPENING" and a few minutes later he sent me the video. I can't even begin to tell you guys how great it made me feel, to know that my favorite band...honestly the best musicians i've ever heard acknowledging Rick Nelson and the Stone Canyon Band on that fateful night. It was a graceful eloquent rendition of a great song, now performed by two great bands (Stone Canyon Band and Phish) and now on New Year's Eve i will think of this moment and i will smile all day long!!! There is no way for Phish to know how much this one performance helped me and i'm okay with that but i'm going to say it anyway.... From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU PHISH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
