Review by Yukon_Jack

Yukon_Jack I wanted to take a moment to reflect back on this show as it was my first post-pandemic and my girlfriends first show as well. What a start with "Carini" and get the crowd pumping. It was my first trip to Deer Creek and what a beautiful experience it was hearing the band (after what feels like so long of a live hiatus).

One thing I wanted to highlight was the "Sand" in the first set, which has stuck with me the past year. The first three numbers were beautifully linked and a great way to kick things off for the night. But the Sand is what brought me to that "feeling" that we all get when we listen to Phish (especially live Phish with a great jam).

Dare I say...a musical state of nirvana?

For me, I had another spiritual moment during the Sand jam. Trey using the loop pedal enhances the quality and I appreciate he tastefulness in how he uses it. I'm not going to dig into the musical details (totally willing to another time), but when certain harmonies, frequencies, octaves and rhythms all interplay with each other in addition to the backing of the band- yeah, it was a moment. Trey opening up the jam with his guitar cries made it seem as if the ascension was nearing completion.

Boom- back to reality (and the song).

Another great show, another great spiritual moment.
