Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.

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.
