There are only a handful of bands that have a strong loyal following and it’s no surprise that Phish would be on that short list. Since their conception in 1983, the band has made quite a name for themselves. From their extended jamming sessions to their ability to blend genres, Phish no doubt continues to rock today.
The Long Haul
Founded in 1983 the band has grown closer each year. Although some members have come and gone, the core members continue to trek through the generations. With their uncanny ability to blend genres, they pull in new fans each year.
In 2002 the band decided to call it quits and performed a farewell show in Vermont. But you can’t keep a good dog down and the band reunited in 2009. Some say Phish is the bridge that gaps age groups with their music. After all, there isn’t another band around that can mesh funk, jazz, blues, folk, pop, bluegrass, and rock the way they can. Even the popular magazine Rolling Stones considers Phish as one of the most influential bands from the 90s.
Today and Forever
Although the band members have taken breaks from working together, they are still very close friends. Each member of the band has stretched their creative legs and made solo albums. Yet, in the end, they always find a way back to one another. Today you’ll find them rocking in New York City with plans to tour the United States.
No doubt their years of musical skills only makes them stronger as a band as long as the creative juices continue to flow. Don’t be surprised if in the next year they take a break again only to come back stronger than ever before. It’s their sporadic swing that makes finding Phish tickets so cumbersome. Yet when they do go on sale, the tickets sell out fast thanks to the loyal fanbase they have gained over the decades.
