After months of hippie speculation, Phish reunited this past weekend to play a wedding. They’ve performed in some weird places in the past — Air Force bases, swamps, the roof of the the Ed Sullivan Theater, Vermont, etc. — but this gig, the nuptials of former Phish road manager Brad Sand, probably takes the cake! Har!
The four members of Phish were attending the reception following the private New York ceremony and took over the hired wedding band’s instruments for a short set consisting of “Julius,” “Suzy Greenberg,” and “Waste,” the third song presumably a nod to the happy couple (lyrics: “come waste your time with me”). Drummer Jon Fishman politely opted not to wear a dress so as not to show up the bride.
