People don't dance together anymore... Duke Ellington played in here, everybody danced together! So, you know, grab somebody... whatever, you know, just... These people over here at Elektra, they'll lead the way! They're all gonna grab each other... partners... and they're all gonna swing! Swing! Swing, swing, swing!" As if that's not enough, he introduces "Brad Sands on the chair!" This kind of joking, plus a nice long vacuum solo, is a great example of the irreverence displayed by the band when confronted with the pressure of a "high profile gig". 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.
