Couple Uses Two-Month Old Phish Song As First Dance At Wedding

While Phish was throwing down their best run of 2016 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colorado this weekend, a pair of the band’s devoted fans tied the knot in Toronto. While many Phish fans have used the quartet’s songs as their first dance, this has to be the quickest a newly debuted tune has been used as such.

Phish fans Jeff Goldglass and Kate McChesney used “Tide Turns” as their wedding song on Sunday night. The foursome debuted the tender Trey Anastasio-sung tune at The Mann in Philadelphia on June 29, a mere two months prior. Jeff appreciated the song’s message and thought it would be perfect for his first dance with his new bride. Phish played “Tide Turns” two other times this summer and we wouldn’t be surprised to see it make the cut for the band’s soon-to-be-released 13th studio album.

Watch the beautiful moment as Jeff and Kate celebrate their nuptials:

Let’s just hope the happy couple doesn’t pass out when they listen to the awesomeness that Phish laid down while they were getting married. Any hey, at least Jeff and Kate thought better of using “Ass Handed.”
