    Hopefully this hints for a tour in the semi near future?

    Sunday, 07 September 2008

    Phish reunited this evening at the wedding of longtime road manager Brad Sands. The four musicians took the stage during the private New York ceremony for a three-song performance that included Phish chestnuts “Suzy Greenberg,” “Julius” and “Waste.” Police drummer Stewart Copeland also sat in with Sands’ wedding band on the Police’s “Can’t Stand Losing You” and The Meters’ “Fire on the Bayou.” Sands served as the Police’s road manager throughout the group’s high-profile reunion tour. Phish last performed together in Coventry, VT in August, 2004.

    The stealth reunion caps off four months of rumors that began when all four members of Phish appeared onstage together at the Theatre at Madison Square Garden. Since that time the musicians have appeared together in various configurations, most notably when Trey Anastasio and Jon Fishman joined Mike Gordon and his band at the Rothbury music festival this past July.

    In June, keyboardist Page McConnell also posted the following note on Phish.com:

    Given that I might not even see some of the guys for the next six months, I would say that the announcement of a reunion is premature. However, later this year we hope to spend some time together and take a look at what possible futures we might enjoy. In fact the only real decision that has been made is that when we do get together, it will only be the four of us, hopefully with no distractions. I am really looking forward to that.

    I want to say just a few more things. The prospect of Phish reuniting is something I consider very seriously, and I think about it a lot. And lastly, as always, there is plenty of misinformation floating around. Try not to focus too much on secondhand sources and random gossip. If there is anything real to announce, it will come from the four of us as a group.

    Oddly enough, the only time Phish performed together during their 2000-2002 hiatus was at the wedding of Jason Colton in 2001. Colton is a longtime member of the group’s management team. As of press time, Phish has no confirmed plans, though Trey Anastasio is scheduled to kick off an extended tour at Port Chester, NY’s Capitol Theatre on October 16.

    Hippie stink mixed with patchoulli is totally worth it.

    As Maki said, wait for them to announce a tour and then reunion rumors will hold some water.

    Well, at least this post is in the right place: OT, where it belongs, since there is nothing of musical interest regarding Phish.

    Zing.

    you obviously have never seen them or listened to any of there work.

    although there song writing can be suspect at times, I beleive they were and are one of the most musicaly talented bands around.

    thats too bad man...

    "hippie jam bands" have some of the best fans in the world. I played in a "hippie jam band" for 2 years with some of the best, most versatile musicians I have ever played with in my 16+ years playing bass. The places we played were always packed with dancing people having a ton of fun. No pretense at all.

    Yup, I caught Gov't Mule about a month ago in Atlanta. I had forgotten how cool the hippie crowd is :cool:

    I've also been jamming recenlty with a couple of old dead heads -- loads of laid back fun.

    Actually, I've listened to quite a bit of their "work" - it would have been completely asinine for me to comment on them if I hadn't. A friend of mine is a giant Phish-head, and really tried to get me into their stuff.

    Yet somehow, all he was able to achieve was to deepen my hatred of Phish. I love all types of music, and I don't generally hate any bands at all, but Phish... god, I hate them. I really, really hate them.

    I recognize that they can play, I just don't care what they do play.

    what do you hate about them?

    Its ok for you to hate them, I just wanna know why.

    trust me.. I have seen them alot and I have songs and whole albums I hate by them. I think some of there "songs" sre garbage, while some are amazing.

    Absolutely everything. Their songwriting, their singing, their "grooves". They are the most soulless, boring, and dare I say, "whitest" band on the planet. Plus their fans smell funny.

    I need to find out who makes hacky sacks--looks like their stock could make a big comeback.
