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.

Last night's first set was excellent. I had it pegged as a contender for best set of the run...until the second set came and kicked our asses!!!!!!!! It might not be the best set I've ever seen, but it's probably the hardest I've ever grooved in my life. They were on...pardon the pun here...FUEGO!!!!!
I was not a believer until last night. I was 100% convinced that 97-98 were their best years, and that was settled.
I'm not sure that I was wrong, but I have my doubts now.
I love the longer jams and they don't do that as often anymore, but EVERYTHING they played last night was as funky as could be- with a new little dance/trance element added to the longer jams.
I'll never see another 7-23-1997. They may never play another 2001 like 8-17-97 or 7-18-98 that goes on for 20+ blissful minutes.
But man oh man, they manage to pack so much more into a smaller time and space.
The boys are absolutely phucking back (if they ever left), and last's nights show was one of the best I've ever seen (there, I said it!).
It's good to be alive!
