List: 15 Incredible Page McConnell One-Timers


Today marks Phish keyboardist Page McConnell’s 50th Birthday and we’ve celebrated the occasion by sharing some of the jam scene's best keyboardists' thoughts about the man known as “Leo." We continue to fete the “Chairman Of The Boards” by looking at 15 of our favorite Page-sung one-timers.

Over the course of Phish’s first 29+ years of performances, there have been many instances where the quartet has covered a song featuring vocals from McConnell that have never been played after its debut. There’s even a Phish original written by and sung by Page that was a “one-and-done.” With that, let's get down to business as we present 15 incredible Page One-Timers.

1997-08-13 @ Star Lake Amphitheatre, Burgettstown, PA

What an opener. The unsuspecting crowd at Star Lake Amphitheatre were treated to the first-ever Elton John cover by Phish, with the group’s only performance of "Amoreena" to date. "Amoreena" has seen multiple repeat performances by Page McConnell, though none with Phish. Page sang the tune in 2002 with Vida Blue, in 2007 with his solo band and even gave a performance of "Amoreena" at Carnegie Hall in 2007 as part of The Music of Elton John & Bernie Taupin. It would be another four years before the music of Elton John would again hit the Phish stage - but more on that later.
