Trey: Okay, uh, welcome to Toad’s Place. First thing we wanna say is, contrary to popular belief, we are not the lead singer from Meridian.
Trey: Marillion, or whoever they are.
Secondly, if you guys will, uh, give me a little backup music here. On the contrary, we are actually from, uh, a different place called Gamehendge. And we’re gonna do a little bit of song here. Right now, if you’ll come with us and picture a sort of- standing out in the middle of a field. A vast green, deep green field that stretches off in all directions. [Music begins to play] Thank you Mike. Lemme hear a little field music here.
All directions, as far as the eye can see, this field. And the clouds are tumbling by overhead, and you’re walking through the field and you’re with a couple of friends and you’re in Gamehendge. And over on the left you see a huge mountain towering in the distance that looks over Gamehendge and the castle of the Evil King Wilson, and you’re walking away from that.
Until suddenly, you see up ahead of you, in the distance, a rhombus. A black rhombus in the distance towering, looming in the distance. And you walk towards it with your friends and you climb, you begin to climb the side of the Rhombus. Throwing hook-ed instruments and climbing up the side of this enormous black rhombus.
Until finally you’re standing on the top of The Rhombus with your two friends and you look off at the mountain in the distance and you think about Icculus. The Great and Knowledgeable Icculus. And you look up at the sky and you begin to pay homage to the night sky and you sing this little ditty. It goes like this...
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.
