Furthur was formed by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Bob Weir and Phil Lesh in the style of the Grateful Dead. While the two were founding members of the Dead, the rest of the musicians have been recruited from similar-style jam bands and side projects of the founders. This makes it part reunion, part tribute band to the legendary original, and the spirit and feel are very much intact.
The Massachusetts Daily Collegian spoke to one dedicated Dead Head, who specified that his last name not be used. A central Connecticut native, Kevin was, like the rest of the crowd, relaxed and ready to feel the music.
“I love it,” said Kevin, when asked how he felt about the event. “I drove six hours to Virginia last week for them, so this is nothing.”Having attended several Dead-style shows in the past, including a live show “in ’95 … that was two months before Jerry [Garcia] died,” and “three Furthur, five RatDog [Bob Weir’s side band], and two The Other Ones,” Kevin was an ideal form to remark on the Grateful Dead’s long-standing appeal.

For the Chicago based band to stroll into the snow covered Holy City; play one of the best shows I have bared witness to; encompasses the simple notion that...- Life is pretty sweet.
Opening with Cemetery Walk, it was time to rock and roll and the band dove into a seemingly endless first set; In The Kitchen> 2nd Self, FF> Walletsworth, Cemetery Walk II, Made to Measure, Prowler > In The Kitchen. When chatting with local fans during set break; with regards to recent shows they had seen of Umphrey’s McGee; Charleston’s was unlike any they have experienced.
“It’s energy; we have seen them a lot, but tonight is different. We are seeing more interaction and they are feeding off of this crowd’s energy.”
As the second set began, things got serious and the ever present power of this band shined; Front Porch, Mantis Ghetts, Comfortably Numb, The Linear, Ringo, 40's Theme. Encore: Pay the Snucka.
Describing the experience of a concert at The Music Farm is difficult. It’s different for every concert. This venue’s atmosphere has the ability to shape and mold concerts into something more than just a piece of paper that says a SET-LIST. Getting lost in a whirlwind maze of intentional musical notes, transitions that seem impossible and finding a light at the end of the tunnel; it’s priceless. These guys are good.

It may not have been a gold-medal performance (Anastasio was more consistently impressive in 2005 at the Orpheum with his then-side project 70 Volt Parade) but Phish-heads got what they needed: a marathon concert featuring nonstop dance-inducing grooves, funky jams and long-winded guitar passages by the most giddily grinningest guitar player of all time.Read more
The repertoire during the two-set, 200-minute concert included a few Phish pieces (mostly done solo on acoustic guitar to the thrill of the singing-along throng), several selections from Anastasio's solo CDs and a killer cover of "Black Dog" that might have prompted fans to rename this septet Red Zeppelin.

We're excited to present a live stream of Trey Anastasio and Classic TAB's performance from the Pageant in St. Louis, MO tomorrow night, February 23, 2010 at iClips.net. The show starts at 8:30PM EST and will stream in its entirety, absolutely free.
Trey and Classic TAB features the same lineup from last fall, with the addition of horns back into the mix. The tour is receiving rave reviews along the way.
The septet is performing material spanning Trey's solo career. The band spent a great deal of time in rehearsals, adapting the arrangements to suit the current configuration and working on several brand new compositions. Classic TAB has always functioned as a breeding ground of sorts, with many of its songs eventually crossing over into Phish's repertoire.
Trey Anastasio and Classic TAB will be at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN on Thursday 2/25, The Fillmore in Charlotte, NC on 2/26, The Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA on 2/27 and The Tennessee Theatre in Knoxville, TN on 2/28 to close out their tour. Tickets are on sale now.

Phish.net has done a great job compiling all the recent Phish sightings over the Vancouver Olympic Games. Now, if they could only help us find "Boner" from Growing Pains.........
We're receiving daily reports of Phish "sightings" during NBC's coverage of the Vancouver Winter Olympics, including:
Ocelot was played during trials for the ski jump on 12/26/09.
First Tube was used in the bump to a commercial about the upcoming bobsled competition on 2/20/10.
Tweezer Reprise (a good 3 minutes worth!) was the background music for the Ono speedskating segment late on 2/20/10.
Kill Devil Falls (the version from Joy) was played over the PA at the Canada vs. USA men's hockey game 2/21/10, with about 15 seconds left in the first period. They played about 20 seconds of the chorus before the puck was dropped again.
Axilla (Part II) (from Hoist) was played with about 8 minutes left in the second period at the same game.
Thanks to Andrew Cogan, Christopher Herrick, Christopher Lusk, Jeremy Pinquist, and Shaun McGrath for these recent reports - and to Scott Bartmanm who some time ago reported that Piper was used in cuts to commercials at the Olympics four years ago!
Other recent sightings include Good Morning America on 12/27/09; Seven Below as background music on 93XRT in Chicago in December 2009, advertising an upcoming concert by another band; and an Albany, NY, sportstalk radio show (104.5 WTMM The Team's Sound off with Sinkoff) has used Sparkle and other Phish songs as background music while Alan Fish reads promos.
