The band “Phish” is the greatest live band in rock n’ roll today. It’s not just incredible music that makes this band great. There is so much more to the experience of a Phish show. When a true Phish fan thinks of Phish, they think of more then just the music. They also think about having fun with friends, meeting new people, and seeing the town that the band will be playing at that night. One has to see a Phish show in order to get the whole idea behind the music. Phish’s music is in a class of its own. According to bassist Mike Gordon, Phish plays “bluegrass, Latin, rock, funk, classical, jazz, calypso, hard-core, and Broadway.” Phish’s music is characterized by simple lyrics, sophisticated instrumentals, extensive musical communication, and extended improvisation. This amazing band from Burlington, Vermont takes you on a mental journey through time and space, while making you dance like no other.They have over 150 great, mind blowing songs. They have fast, high energy songs and slow and slow, soul touching tunes. It is the best dance music around and leaves you wanting more. Seeing a Phish show is like being on a roller coaster that is so much fun that you just don’t want to get off.
Phish fans are the best fans in music. When you go to a Phish show, you will be amazed by the amount of respect and kindness you are treated with. After seeing a few shows at a time, I feel I had forgotten the meaning of the word “nice”. You will meet new and interesting people from all over the world. The best part about it is the everyone is there for one thing, the music. Phish tour is one of the most enjoyable things you could do with your summer. Nothing beats driving from city to city with your friends while experiencing some of the most incredables music of your life. Phish will play in big cities such as New York and Philadelphia, to cities as small as their home town, Burlington, Vermont. Whather you are camping at a campsite or hanging out in a hotel room, you are still having fun with your friends. Nothing beats a summer filled with Phish and traviling.
One cannot put the experiences of the Phish culture in words. One can’t just go out and purchase one of thier albums to get the jist behind the music. Phish has to be seen live. Part of the excitement is that the bands leaves the fans guessing what song they are going to play and how they are going to play it. When they break into something totally unexpected and play the tune like it’s never been played before, you just wanna bust out into tears. All I need to describe live Rock n’ Roll today is one word, “Phish”.
