This is likely the first time members of Phish performed publicly on New Year’s Eve. A booking company telephoned The Joneses on New Year’s Eve and asked them if they could play a last-minute show. Apparently not all members of the band were in town so they added Trey and Page and played the show as a combination of the two bands, called “The Phones.” The lineup included Trey on guitar, Page on keys, Steve Drebber on drums, Dan Pine on drums, Tim “T.J.” Johnston on bass, and Mark Jensen on percussion. Sound was engineered by Garrett Mead. While a setlist is not available, it is known that the show included Eyes of the World, Grapevine (I Heard it Through the...), and a Bachman-Turner Overdrive song.

Review by The_Nutty_Professor

The_Nutty_Professor NO WAY!!!!! They played Magic Mtn!!!!???? I grew up in the backside of Magic... This is crazy news! Of course the now-famous Townshend Family Park shows are only about a 15 minute drive from Magic, but I just have never heard of this gig! Thanks "Day in History"! Oh and PS - Magic Mtn is the hill where snowboarding was invented.... fo real. Jake Burton. Londonderry. Vermont is good.
