I saw this same tour about a month later at the Stanley Theater in Utica, NY. One of the best shows I've ever seen. The band was super tight, had a huge wall of sound, and had great energy.

Probably the wildest thing I've ever experienced at a concert occurred when Trey stopped the show in the middle of, I think, "Push on Till the Day" because the upper balcony in the Stanley was literally shaking and weaving from side to side from all the dancing going on up there. I was down near the orchestra pit in front of the stage and pointed out to my buddy who was with me the exit door about 10 yards from us as this was going on as had the balcony fallen, we were dead meat. It was a bit scary to say the least. Keep in mind that the Stanley is a gorgeous old time theater that seats maybe a total of 3,000 people. A very small, intimate venue (which Mule has played by the way)..

Trey explained why they stopped as some audience members had no clue what was happening above them. He then asked his tech for an acoustic guitar, invited his violin player and another musician out front, and proceeded to play some of the most beautiful acoustic music I'd ever heard in the Stanley. You could've heard a pin drop the place was so silent. Very bizarre as the place was rocking its ass off just minutes before. I'll never forget that show as long as I live.

I was really impressed with both Trey and his entire band after this show and promptly went out and bought some Phish material....I'd love for Trey to do another album like the one this tour was in support of. I think a year or two later he did the "Oyster Head" project with Les Claypool and Stewart Copeland. Incidentally that band played Utica as well but played the Utica Auditorium rather than the Stanley Theater. I wonder if they avoided the Stanley precisely because of the aforementioned incident? The Utica Auditorium after all has VERY **** ty sound while the Stanley is about as perfect as you can get...

Great story. I bet they did switch venues due to that incident. I had a similar experience at Shea Stadium for the Rolling Stones' 'Steel Wheels' Tour. About halfway through the show the upper deck started going up and down during 'Satisfaction' and I am not talking just a little bit, probably around 4 inches up and down each way. This was only about a month after the huge San Fransisco earthquake which happened during the World Series and I though we were having an earthquake as well. When I walked out into the concession area we looked back through the tunnel towards the field and you could actually see the rail going up and down four inches or so each way. It was bizarre and I couldn't understand how the stadium could handle that. They had a story about it the next day in the newspaper explaining that Shea was designed for the upper level to go up and down like that purposely to absorb that kind of energy. Very scary.

If you enjoyed that, you might enjoy the all-acoustic set Phish did at their Indio festival in 2009...

http://bt.etree.org/details.php?id=529806

I found this set to be delightful, and it shows another side of Phish that you don't often see. Sleep Again, Curtain With and Mountains In The Mist are the highlights in my opinion.

Chain, I can't be sure without checking, but the acoustic tune you are talking about could be The Outlaw Josey Wales, a very pretty acoustic instrumental Trey was playing on that tour.

In related news, if you'e a Trey/Phish fan, the current summer tour by Phish shows more improvement by Trey and the band as they attempt to reclaim the jamband throne. Trey's tone and chops haven't sounded this good in over a decade, and there is some really interesting improv these shows. This is the closest they have come in a long time to sounding like the band that conquered the world in the mid-90s.

Attaboy Trey! Glad we didn't lose him to drugs, it would have been a terrible waste of talent.

Yeah, you aren't kidding, they're on fire right now. Alpine Valley coming up too......always a hot spot.

Since I posted the above post, I had a chance to listen to this recording of the 6/23 show...

http://bt.etree.org/details.php?id=556191

The second set is on fire! Mike's Song>Simple>Light>Weekapaug is as good a sequence as Phish has played since they reunited in 2009. Color me impressed

Like many people, at times I had given up hope that Trey would ever get back to this level again. I'm so glad to be wrong, and glad one of the best musicians of my generation is back on his game.

Wow.....I suppose it makes sense that the upper deck was designed that way. To see something that large moving up and down probably was more than a bit freaky. Thing is the Stanley balcony was actually weaving from side to side sort of like the large suspension bridge that collapsed many, many years ago (I'm assuming some have seen the rather scary footage of that unfortunate event?) from wind shear. Given the Stanley is so small, it was a feeling of dread and claustrophobia all at the same time. As I think more about it, I think this show may have been in the fall of 2003 and not 2004....Anyway, I'm pretty sure it was the same band line-up as what we see in the above clip and boy did they smoke.

They are super on right now. Check out the 6/16 show from AC. Unbelievable.

I really like Trey and he does a good job here. But it's hard to measure up to Rick Danko's vocals on that song!

I also saw Trey's band when they shared a bill with Mule at Jones Beach several years ago. I thought that was a good show.....tight band as was mentioned.

Good to hear Phish is sounding so good on tour.

I saw Trey on that tour with Mule as well as the tour Chain is talking about. I liked both a lot and the horn section in that band was really cool but I never liked Trey solo anywhere close to how much I like him with Phish. I think Phish id just one of those bands where those four musicians have an uncanny and unique chemistry where the band just couldn't go on or survive if any one of them couldn't go on.
