Review by Halloween94

Halloween94 I grew up about 20 miles from Woodstock New York and I remember getting a phone call that day at work from my friend saying that Phish was going to be playing at Joyous Lake that night, she wasn’t even 21, we didn’t have tickets but we went up anyway. Pulled into the parking lot in the back of venue, we see a box truck with Vermont plates, we just hung out on the ramp that goes from the back deck of the bar to the parking lot, the line at the front door was down the street. A few minutes later, the band walks by us loading in their own equipment. I just smile and am speechless ( very rare for me). By show time the bar and the outside deck are completely packed, as soon as the band goes on everybody from the outside deck rushes into the bar and now the outside deck is completely open. I say to the cop that’s guarding the back deck, we’re just sitting here dancing on the ramp can’t we just go over to the deck so we will have more space to dance? Needless to say, he let me and my friend in, no tickets, raging show………. One of the best nights of my life????????????????????????????????????????
