About Phish

Phish, a US rock band, was formed in 1983 at the University of Vermont by guitarist/vocalist Trey Anastasio, guitarist Jeff Holdsworth, and drummer Jonathan Fishman, later joined by bassist Mike Gordon. Jeff soon left the band and Page McConnell joined on keys, finalizing the lineup. Phish began playing at local clubs in Burlington, and their live shows gained a reputation for extended improvisational jams. They're very similar to The Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers Band, Aerosmith, and Jimi Hendrix. They recorded their debut album, "Junta" in 1988, and began touring national soon after, playing 150 concerts in 1990 alone. They were signed to Elektra Records and released:

  • Junta (1988)
  • Lawn Boy (1989)
  • A Picture of Nectar (1991)
  • Rift (1993)
  • Hoist (1994)
  • A Live One (1995) - Recorded live during the fall of 1994.
  • Billy Breathes (1996)
  • Slip Stich and Pass (1997) - Recorded live at Markthalle, Hamburg, Germany, March 1, 1997
  • The Story of the Ghost (1998)
  • Hampton Comes Alive (1999)
  • Farmhouse (2000).
  • The Siket Disc (2000) - Recorded live at Bearsville Studios in 1997
  • Round Room (2002)

Their fame grew with each successive release and the band began organizing massive festivals such as the Clifford Ball (1996), Great Went (1997), Lemonwheel (1998), Oswego (1999), and a 3 day millennium concert at the Big Cypress Seminole reservation at the end of 1999. Phish toured throughout the summer and fall of 2000, and began a hiatus at the end of the tour. The band members have begun embarking on side projects: Trey fronting his own band, Page forming the trio Vida Blue with Russell Batiste and Oteil Burbridge, Fish performing with Pork Tornado, and Mike working on films such as Outside Out and The Deep End.

Ben and Jerry named a flavour of ice cream after them, “Phish Food. ”
