    MMW can blame Phish for the infusion of jamband fans into their acid jazz scene. In the fall of 1995, MMW was still underground in the Phish scene, until a three-day span in October changed everything. They were slated to open for Phish in New Orleans on 10/17. But when Phish tour rolled into Austin, TX, three days before, MMW was already in town for a show of their own.
    The result was one of the most sought-after recordings ever, as John Medeski (keys), Billy Martin (drums) and Chris Wood (bass) all joined Phish for a ridiculously experimental “You Enjoy Myself.” Trey returned the favor later that night, sitting in on guitar with the trio. MMW reprised their avant-garde Phish role three nights later, as expected, with a guest jam out of “Keyboard Army.”
    Trey sat in with MMW again on 12/1/00. That night he first met percussionist Cyro Baptista, who also sat in, and later invited him to join his solo band. Fishman appeared on-stage with MMW on 12/15/00. Medeski joined Trey and Fishman for the 1996 Surrender to the Air project, joined Fishman at a Project Logic gig on 5/7/00, collaborated with Mike at the 11/18/01 “Jammin’ for Salmon” benefit and the 2/7/02 DJ Logic “Trios” concert, and played with Trey’s solo band for three gigs in Summer 2001. Wood and Mike shared the stage on 11/20/01 for the Big Apple Unity Jam. 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.
