After completing the troll by performing “Ha Ha Ha” following the songs that spelled out “LUSHINGTON,” Phish welcomed Trey Anastasio Band trumpeter Jennifer Hartswick and trombonist Natalie Cressman to add horns to “Suzy Greenberg.” The song has been a regular spotlight song for guest horn player(s) since Dave “The Truth” Grippo added saxophone to “Suzy” at The Front in Burlington on December 2, 1990. “Suzy Greenberg” was subsequently performed with the Giant Country Horns on each and every show they joined Phish for during the summer of 1991.
Prior to Dick’s, the last horn-assisted “Suzy” took place at Festival 8 in 2009 with the help of Sharon Jones and Saundra Williams on backup vocals, Dave Guy on trumpet, David Smith on trombone and Tony Jarvis on saxophone. Friday’s “Suzy Greenberg” marked Cressman’s first appearance on stage with Phish and the first for Hartswick since she assisted on a cover of Jay-Z’s “Girls Girls Girls” on April 15, 2004.
