Con Conrad and Billy Rose, who gained notoriety working with George Gershwin and other legends in the 1930s, wrote this Dixieland jazz number back in 1922. Phish has only performed the song once, in Phoenix on 3/16/93. The band serenaded Trey’s grandmother with her husband, Harry Jones, providing the lead vocals.
