They only played this classic of ‘60s swinger-pop once. On 12/1/84, the band made their Nectar’s debut as Phish in the upstairs room at the legendary bar. Following an interesting set featuring “Skippy the Wondermouse,” “Makisupa Policeman,” and The Dude of Life in full (albeit cheapo) regalia, band intros were done above a soundtrack of this Herb Alpert masterpiece, sans Herb’s signature trumpet, but with the added bonus of Marc Daubert on percussion.
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.
