Notes: “At the Gazebo” featured the Vermont Youth Orchestra String Quartet. During the break before the encore maracas and tambourines were passed out to the audience and a set of stairs was placed in front of the stage. During “Alive Again” approximately forty guests – including members of Cyro Baptista’s Beat The Donkey ensemble, Brazilian dancers and other assorted percussionists and pranksters – joined Trey’s band in what can perhaps best be described as a strange combination of two infamous Phish antics: the 10/22/96 MSG “Freakapaug” and the 5/27/94 “Shake your Macaroni” Possum. After the ending refrain and amid an audience-aided percussion jam, Trey led the entire entourage down the stairs in front of the stage, through the audience and onto 51st Street where a drum circle ensued, blocking midtown traffic for nearly half an hour.

Musicians: Trey Anastasio, Dave Grippo, Russell Remington, Peter Apfelbaum, Jennifer Hartswick, Russ Lawton, Tony Markellis, Ray Paczkowski, Cyro Baptista, Andy Moroz
