|Originally Performed By||Phish|
In a band full of pranksters, Halloween has always been a big day on the Phish calendar. In 1994, Phish upped the ante by performing a musical costume. In the years before that, however, the highlight of many Halloween shows was the costume contest. And, make no mistake: the band took these contests seriously. As Trey remarked on 10/31/91, everyone who was voted down “has to take a stage dive… even you, Jesus.” Past contest winners include Harry Hood (10/29/88), Bergen County Woman Cop & Captain Bong Hit (10/31/91) and the “Mound” candy bar (10/31/94).
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 just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
