Phish, in a few words
Discovered Phish in 1992 by accident, they opened for Santana. Knew right away they were special - complex musical arrandements, great jams, and outstanding vocal harmonies. Moved to Montana that year and only saw them once in 17 years, till '09-10 (7x)
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
