Got into them at 15 yrs old in late '96. She drove me around in her car and we listened to Rift and 12/31/94 Boston. First show 7/23/97 Atlanta, last show sadly 9/17/00 Merriweather. Almost all my musical tastes can be traced back to Phish. Thanks guys.
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.
