Oftened generalized as "granola rockers" or as the band that picked up the mantle of the Grateful Dead, The music of Phish draws from styles and genres including rock (in its loosest sense), jazz, blue grass, funk. Phish has been known to perform in wetsuits, on flying hot dogs, with gospel choirs and using a vacume cleaner.

Phish is, first and foremost, a jam band. Concerts are made up of long periods of instrumental rocking and chord progression manipulation and expansion whereas studio versions of songs more often list more "filler" songs (although they are still good) and shortened versions of the huge concert warhorse pieces.

Phish is:
1) Trey Anastasio (Lead vocals, Guitar)
2) Mike Gordon (Bass, Vocals)
3) Page McConnel (Anything with a keyboard, Vocals)
4) Jon Fishman (Percussion, Vacume Cleaner)

Phish sampler songs (to get you into the band)
1) Run Like An Antelope
2) The Squirming Coil
3) You Enjoy Myself
4) Divided Sky
5) Mike's Song

In parallel to their beloved band, Phish fans have a reputation for carrying the mantle of the Dead Heads. This includes following there band on tours, setting up shop in the parking lot, partaking in anything that might enhance the concert experience (particularly, Marijuana, Ecstasy, LSD). Phans, as they have come to be known, can come from any background though. Neo-hippies and those of us who tend to conform a little more can unite at a Phish show. The sense of brotherhood and unity is welcome to anyone who can appreciate good music.

Phish stopped playing after their farewell tour Summer of 2006 that culminated in a final show at Coventry, Vermont.
"Mom did you steal Billy Breathes again?"

"Here, let me pass you the bong so I can get out Picture of Nectar."

"We were stuck in traffic on the highway for hours trying to see Phish at the Great Went!"

Phish is:

*Music in its purest form.
*The best unkept secret.
*An organic sound.
*The good shit.
*The hardest working band to ever tour.
*The hose.
*Facemelting (see Indiana Jones)
*Musical perfection
"There is nothing more awe-inspiring than Phish improvising live, and getting it right."

"If Beethoven was alive in the 90's, he would most likely have to open for Phish."

An American band comprised of four members that go beyond writing music, as opposed to current main stream musical acts, but rather compose it in many different complex forms of music. Most compositions leave room for improvisation when preformed live. Thanks to the invention of free thought, they are widely preferred by a variety of people (not just dirty stinky hippies who think they're cool and ultra-liberal yet really only know phish slightly better than fifth grade math). However, they are also despised but many close-minded people who hate the band simply because of their stereotyped fan base (see: Eric Cartman). Although not for everyone, Phish's music will strike an immediate chord with listeners which to some, will sound flat and lost, but to other feels sharp, original and transcendental.
"Some dirty Phish fan tried to sell me junk, I vow to hate everyone associated with the name"

"I could go see forty Phish shows by myself with no mind-altering substances and die happy."

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.
