Phish tribute act returned to the Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday for the first show of a three in the Mid-Atlantic. The band offers interesting, horn-driven interpretations of Phish classics and were joined by special guest Carl “Gears” Gerhard. Gears has performed with Phish many times over the years including on Summer Tour 1991 as a member of the Giant Country Horns horn section.
Jazz Is Phish was founded last year by Adam Chase and Matthew Chase of Strange Design and they are joined in the group by a rotating cast of musicians. Last night’s show included interpretations of early Phish gems “Golgi Apparatus,” “Dog Log,” “Dinner & A Movie,” “Foam” as well as mid ’90s classics “Julius,” “Ghost,” “Cars Trucks Buses” and more. The run continues tonight at The Rext Theatre in Pittsburgh and concludes on Thursday night at Ardmore Music Hall near Philadelphia. An audience recording of last night’s show can be heard below.
