The band marched in through the crowd wearing marching band uniforms for the opening “When the Saints Come Marching In,” which was a TAB debut. Trey and Tony were on acoustic for "Happiness In My Pants" with Russ. Trey performed “Mountains in the Mist” solo acoustic. THe debut of “Sweet Dreams Melinda” was introduced by it’s original name, “Til I Met You.” Mike sat in for the entire encore. Mike and Trey only performed on ”Hard Hearted” (a TAB debut) and “Possum,” both on acoustic guitars. Following the TAB debut of “Yellow Submarine,” the crowd continued to sing the chorus as the entire band marched out the same way they came in.

This show was part of the "TAB - The Sextet"

Review by NightSpeaks

NightSpeaks About all notable about this show are the beginning and end. The band marching on and off stage through the audience must have been some good fun, as is the Mike sit in for the encore. The meat of the show is great stuff too of course but there's not much that stands out compared to previous shows of the tour. Only thing I can think to mention is this version of I Want to Take You Higher has some big energy.

Review by The_Good_Doctor

The_Good_Doctor I have seen my share of various incarnations of Phish side projects - at least one for every member. This show is the highlight of them all. The mood was exuberant, even rowdy for the intimate Thomas Wolfe Auditorium. The crowd was just brimming with energy - and right off the mark, the band responded in spades.

The TAB entrance alone tells you exactly what kind of show this was - marching in right through crowd in uniform no less, pumping out 'When the Saints Come Marching In.' How is that for an opening number? I will never forget that the feeling - oh yes, it was going to be one of those nights.

The first set is pretty stacked, but the one that really brought it all home was 'Mist' - just filled with moments of aching beauty. The second set brought the heat. 'Drifting' through 'Jibboo' was an all out rocking, mad dash through originals and smoking covers. It was truly a high-energy, crowd-pleasing romp. Cap that all off with a Mike Gordon appearance for the encore (acoustic 'Possum!') and the outro 'Yellow Submarine' march. Classic Phish-style hijinx, superbly executed by Big Red and Band.

I had never heard, let alone seen TAB before this night and it was a real treat. There was even a decent shakedown happening outside of the Civic Center, but hey that is Asheville for you. I haven't heard this as a recording so I don't know how it translates, but as with all things Phish - here's to being there .
