I saw this show and the show the night before. I love Steamboat, some really great skiing. At this point of my life, however, I couldn't both ski and go to the shows. I chose the shows. The crowd was great, and the bar was located right at the base of the mountain. It is no longer there, I think.
This show is notable for me because I gave Trey grief for ending the show 20 minutes before closing time. I told him that I was there and chose Phish over skiing, and that I felt let down that I missed out on 20 minutes of potential Phish. Trey was very polite, understanding and a true gentleman.
I was an ass.
I ended up going back the next day and asking for the promotional picture the Inferno used to advertise. The owner gave it to me, and I asked him what he thought about Phish. He sort of shrugged his shoulders, and then I asked him what he thought of take the "A" train, and he perked up and smiled and said he really enjoyed it.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
