Phish is an American jam band renowned for their epic live concerts and amusing stage antics.
∙ Inspired by the music of the Grateful Dead, Frank Zappa, and Santana, Phish was formed while its members attended the University of Vermont together.
∙ Though it never actually charted, their loopy, self-released 1989 debut, Junta—featuring the fan favorite “You Enjoy Myself”—eventually sold more than a million copies.
∙ Billy Breathes—their psych-folky 1996 release that’s widely regarded as their definitive studio album—was recorded with legendary producer Steve Lillywhite (U2, XTC, Peter Gabriel).
∙ Phish’s New Year’s Eve 1995: Live At Madison Square Garden is ranked among Rolling Stone’s 50 Greatest Live Albums of All Time.
∙ Nine of the band’s albums have landed in the Top 20 of the Billboard 200 chart.
∙ Legendary for never performing the same set twice, Phish played 237 different songs over their 13-night 2017 stand at Madison Square Garden, without repeating any of them.
