Fishman has previously shown support for Sanders, including wearing an altered version of his iconic dress with Bernie imagery.

The drummer has also performed with The Mallett Brothers Band on several occasions.
Sanders was mayor of Burlington, Vermont when Phish formed there in 1983. Fishman spoke at a rally for Sanders in 2016, crediting the then-presidential hopeful for helping Phish achieve early success in their hometown.
