I am not sure when it was that I first met Marley but it had to be somewhere around late 1992 or early 1993. Once Phish upgraded their touring gear to include a full size tour bus in 1992 it enabled Trey to bring Marley along more often. After that point and for the next few years she was a regular part of the backstage scene. For as much noise and strange people that were always around, she was a calm and friendly dog, very much at home on the road with the band. She mostly kept to the hidden areas of backstage but you would sometimes see her darting around or even playing if there was enough space. In the time before Trey had children it seemed like it gave him a feeling of having some of home with him on tour. I know he loved that dog with all his heart, and I was indeed sad when I realized she was missing from backstage and would not be returning. She will forever remain as one of my fond memories of the earlier days of Phish.

Trey’s beloved dog Marley passed away ten years ago this month. In her memory, we share these words from the second edition of The Phish Companion, written by Brian Feller:
