|Originally Performed By||Baby Gramps|
Baby Gramps is a conundrum, an enigma, a riddle that would out-sphinx the Sphinx itself. That said, Baby Gramps opened for Phish at three Northwestern shows during summer 1993 (8/24, 8/25, and 8/26). On both 8/25 and 8/26 the legendary guitar player boarded the stage led Phish in a rendition of one of his twisted originals, “Nothin' But A Nothin'” (also known as "Nuthin' But A Nuthin'." With Fishman joining in on vacuum, Baby Gramps served up his signature guitar playing, a slapped-together combination of Eugene Chadbourne and Django Reinhardt.
Gramps has spoken fondly of his appearance with Phish, calling them “nice guys” who could “almost” even keep up with his playing!
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.
