American jam band formed in Burlington, VT in 1983. Members in clute Trey Anastasio (vocals, guitar), Mike Gordon (bass), Page McConnell (keys) and Jon Fishman (bass). They were active until 2004, except for a 2-year hiatus between 2000 and 2002.

Known for their improvisational skills, extended live shows and dedicated fan base (see Phisheads), Phish were at the forefront of the jam band revival of the early 1990s that also spawned Blues Traveler, the Spin Doctors and Widespread Panic.
When it comes to post-Grateful Dead improvisation-based rock bands, non can hold a candle to Phish.

A "jam band" that have tripped so much, smoked so much, and gotten wasted so much that they can never remember how their songs go. So they make it up as they go along! C'mon, people! They're not REALLY jamming, they just can't remember how the song went! That's why ever time they play it it's different.
Unwashed Phanatic In Birkies: Oh mannn! I love this Phish song!

Pearl Jam were rad last night but they started to phish a bit during their encore and i wasn't stoned enough to enjoy it.

(2) a faux psychedelic jam band from the suburbs of Main Line New Englend that think they're "funky." They have some good songs, and I'll admit those boys can jam, but come on! They're so overrated! Most of their fans are also "funky" suburban soul brother wannabe hippies who actually have no idea what true funk is. In fact, many Phish fans I know hate real black funk bands like Parliament, JamesBrown, and the Ohio Players, and only like white jam bands like Phish, the String Cheese Incident, the Dead, and all those other posers.
Phish have one or two good songs, but don't overrate them!
