Phish performed before a loyal crowd at Fenway Park on Friday, presenting an amazing evening of improvisational rock. Perfect weather set the world right, as the band kicked off the first of two nights at the iconic ballpark. Diehard fans traveled from all over to enjoy a spectacular night of progressive rock.
Formed in 1983 at the University of Vermont, the band has maintained a steady lineup consisting of frontman Trey Anastasio (vocals/guitar), Mike Gordon (bass), Jon Fishman (drums), and Page McConnell (keys). Known as a “jam band,” they played a tight set with grooves ranging the spectrum from funk to psychedelic and progressive rock.
Described by Rolling Stone Magazine as “the most important band of the ‘90s,” they performed a 20 song set including fan favorites “Free,” and “Say It to Me S.A.N.T.O.S.” As always, the band was backed by their signature breathtaking light show. Superb weather, great vibes, and groovin’ music made for a “chill” evening.
