I own a record store and a record label, play in many bands and edit a music blog. First heard Phish at summer camp in '94 and was heavy into tape trading by Summer '99. Didn't see the boys til 2.0, but I've caught some good gigs so i can't complain...
I have very diverse musical tastes. I like obscure private press LPs, krautrock, Old Weird America, New Weird America, free jazz, pysch rock, downer folk, punk, hardcore, noise, Grateful Dead.

Phish for me was a really important stepping stone to other musical terrain. I have them to thank for Eno, Sun Ra, Velvets...I got out of touch with the band and its music after being obsessed 99-04, but am now firmly
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.
