Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
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 $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
I get it, Phish Chicks is about the female experience with Phish and I, as a straight white male may not be the type of person that many in this community look to hang with. My intentions however, came from a place of curiosity and were strictly honorable.
That said, I am very happy this group exists and wish them continued success as a DC. I also thank Denise for writing this as it gives us all a better understanding of the positive experiences of this amazing music.
