This performance was part of the Laguna Seca Daze Festival that also included Four Non Blondes, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, The Mother Hips and Meat Puppets. Julius included a Buried Alive tease from Trey. Fish was introduced during I Didn't Know as Mr. Al Unser, Jr. (who had won the Indianapolis 500 earlier in the day). Guelah contained a Simpsons signal. The jam at the start of the second encore is often labeled as “Trey Taking a Leak Jam” because Trey was in the bathroom when the band took the stage. Wilson was played by request.
Warm sunshine, wide open lawn with plenty of space to dance on, you can't ask for better outdoor venue conditions. This is the infamous Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey. Camping on the hill, music below.
The music was incredible. The boys we're coming off 3 nights at the Warfield and these were their last 2 shows of the tour I believe. The Bowie, Esther, Melt, and Freebird were memorable as well as the 5 song encore. This was summer 94 in a nutshell.
The whole weekend was really the ticket though. Felix raged the parking lot and if you know Felix's history, you know the hand of Bear was felt by all who partook. The night before, Fishman hung out at the campground drum circle hiding under a hoodie. This was quite a party all around and the band didn't disappoint. Take a listen to both these shows.
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.
