yep

.a burlington VT bluegrass/newgrass band, with some of the guys being friends with some of >the phish guys... i have a show or two where mike gordon sits in with them...

mike who? sorry cuoldnt resist

>they have a few cd's out, they used to come thru southern WV and stay with a friend of mine >while they were in town.

>they also have ties to jamie masefield and gordon stone...

jamie is the man. the mandolin man. dont miss him. jazz mandilon project.

> itold doug perkins (their guitar player) once, that i thought he was as good as tony rice (to >me, they both have similar styles when pickin' the "speed" grass).

doug is indeed in the same league, albeit humble beyond measure. in some
ways i prefer doug, because he has a very soft way with his guitar, when
he slows it down and gets quiet, there is nobody as beautiful as doug on a martin

I know i am responding to a very old post but these are my local guys here
in beetown, and for anyone who hasnt heard of them, forget ph(*&sh,
go check out jamie masefield and doug perkins and gordon stone, whenever
you can.

Top starter Phish Shows

I've seen tons of phish shows from 1992 to 2002. I averaged about 30 shows a year. Everyone has their own favorites but here is what I would recommend to get started.
First off, in my opinion for new phans I recommend the sexy stuff first. When I'm trying to turn a kid who has never heard any Dead on to the band I always start with shows from 77 & 78. These shows will hook the new fan and then they can start to seek out the gems from other years. I feel the same way about Phish. I always recommend shows from 99 to new phans. This year and 98 were full of funky jams and catchy tunes. I don't remember the exact dates but I can give you the tour, venue and year for the shows.

All fall tour (1-4)
1) Hampton 99 any night.
2) MCI Center Arena 99 (D.C.)
3) The Pyramid 99, (TN)
4) Nasau Coliseum 99 (NY) both nights
5) Jazz Fest New Orleans Spring tour 97 or 96. Can't remember the exact year but they only played the Jazz Fest one time.
6) U.S. Air Arena 97 (MD)

Sideshow BoB and Tippy

i was lucky to have close friends who where much older than i was and who spent time on Dead Tour to teach me when i was on Phish Tour.

I am really looking for some phish heads where were on tour from 92-2000. Is there anybody out there!!!!!!!!

Squish

Wow i am happy to see this thread here as i have spent about 8 years of my life intertwined in the phish world. I wish i could still keep in contact with my friends from those years. I spent the last years of my phish travels in the clinic and actually by that time i was over it, but i look back at those years as if they were pages out of a story book. If the Johnson twins who were my best friend at one time are on here please drop me a line. For some reason i feel that Shawn Johnson is on this thread some where and his twine brother Shane who used to work for Phish and who used to enjoy the Jon Coltrane parties at my place in P town in the late 90's. Anyway Phish was also a big part of my life and i have seen somthing like 175+ shows as i have actually forgotten how many i have been to. I remember many bits and pieces all the time and i am thankful for all these great times.

Ya 96 i felt is was close to being over but then came 97!!!!!!

young fan...

My first Dead show was in Phoenix 3-5-94, and I had seen so many Phish stickers and shirts that I wanted to check them out when they came to the suburb of Mesa in December '94... So for me (being 15-16 years old) both bands were just part of one huge awesome trip that I wanted so desperately to be part of. The bus came by and I got on, only there were two buses! The Bozos and the Bolos?
I graduated high school in 1996, so I never got my chance to go on a Dead tour. I did get to see five shows, for that I am forever grateful! But thank goodness Phish was there, playing at their peak, and the spirit of it all was there, I believe...

"Livephish, PhishNet, etc

I could never understand all the negative stuff about the Dead on these websites. Didn't anyone ever understand where it all came from?"

I already got yelled at for trying to trade a phish ticket on dead lot(early 90's) lol so I guess it goes both ways.

My guess on why alot of Phish phans dislike the dead is when Jerry passed, it basically ruined their scene with all the overflow from gd to phish. Just a guess though.....
