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.
Review by SFuzzy
I read the Rolling Stone article/interview with Trey after the concert. Finding out how the whole album/tour is a tribute to Trey's late friend really put the experience into perspective for me. The whole energy of the room made more sense. Looking back, I wish everyone stayed seated instead of flooding the rows of the orchestra aisles like they were stubbing down to pav at a summer show. If I knew that it wouldn't be a show to dance at, and instead just a show to listen to what Trey was offering, I think I would've had a better time. Unfortunately, I went into the show expecting TAB + Fish and felt blueballed at the end of it.
Listening back, great show, great (authentic) experience. I just wish I read up on the project beforehand.
