Wow. I feel a tad bit smarter just because of reading this. I am so clueless about music (keys, methods of taping, etc.), so I love reading this stuff simply to gain some appreciation for what the community does for us. I always assumed the tapers' section was just a bunch of dudes putting microphones in the air. Boy, was I wrong, and gladly so.Glad to discuss any and all of the things contained within this post (and more!) in-depth. Give me the time of day and I'll keep ranting on and on about Phish and why I love the music so much. Though again, I want to highlight I'm not necessarily correct - these are just my thoughts and notes, open for critique and discussion.
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 $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
