Amazing Grace was performed without microphones. Also, while several versions of YEM have teased Oye Como Va, this version featured an all-out jam of the song. Contact segued out of the YEM vocal jam. During Daniel Saw the Stone, the band introduced and thanked each member of the crew. Chris Kuroda also took a light solo during the introductions. J.J. Cale was the opening act.

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.

Arrive Berkeley. As always, the boys end the tour with a summary of what has come before – and this one was flawless.
Find the remastered soundboards circulating.
First set highlights:
Acoustic Ginseng; a 15+ min. Stash that floats briefly into type II jamming before ending on a rip-roaring ending by Trey; Page’s Coil solo; and the Dude of Life’s first appearance on the West Coast during Crimes of the Mind. The band is sittin’ on top of the world by this point.
Second set highlights:
Another classic Antelope from ’93 with all the teases; It’s Ice>ball jam; a full-out Oye Como Va YEM jam and an outstanding segue from the vocal jam to Contact; Daniel Saw the Stone sees Trey, accompanied by Fish’s light bluegrass drumming, read a list of thank-you’s to all the crew members. He doesn’t forget anyone; not even the woman who busts folks selling bootleg t-shirts on the lot! Anyways, even the bus drivers of the two semi-trucks and two passenger coaches get credit, where it is rightfully due, of course.
Those who have made it into one of Phish’s four appearances at the Greek should complain of little in life. And anyone who wants to listen to how far the band has come in the past seventeen years, you should pickup these sbd tapes from Berkeley ’93, and juxtapose them with 2010.
Phish would go underground for seven months after Berkeley '93, only to appear for a quick New Year’s run, before resurfacing in April ’94 for another transformative year.
