Debuted on 2/22/01 at the Landmark Theatre in Syracuse, NY, the instrumental “Nothing But an ‘E’ Thing” would eventually become known to Phish fans as the introductory, pre-jam, and closing sections of “Pebbles and Marbles.” The song received 7 performances on TAB’s Winter 2001 tour and was played twice more in July of that year before being retired. On 2/24/01, at the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby, PA, Trey dedicated the song to his father, which could mean that the “E” stands for “Ernest” (if not the key the song is played in).”Nothing But an ‘E’ Thing” Trey Anastasio Band - 2/22/01, Syracuse, NY
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.
