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.

(Sidebar: for a full-dress 1997 Cities, see 8/10 Deer Creek (24 minutes of open-field magic), 7/1 Amsterdam, or (in a different vein) the scorching 6/20 Prague jam. For a close cousin of the Bowie jam, try the 7/23 Ghost, the loopy 7/5 Twist, or the much darker-hued 11/23 Stash > NICU, just one of that classic show's daring jams.)
