One of the extraordinary things about Phish.net is how comprehensive it is. Likely there is a slew of information under the hood that you may not have even discovered yet. Sure, everyone enjoys the meticulous setlist database and show notes and likely peruses song histories as well. Many people of course take advantage of venue info, our forums, jamming charts, tease charts, and 20+ jam charts. However, many are unaware at the scope of our Side Show Setlists. From Trey Anastasio Band, Mike Gordon Band, to Pork Tornado to Bad Hat to Jazz Mandolin Project, we strive to document every date, every song and every note played by any member of the band. Slowly but surely, this lofty goal is becoming a reality. Recently, the Everyone Orchestra appearances with Fishman have been completed.
Check out this 2006-10-04 show for a great sample of a typical Everyone Orchestra show which features a revolving lineup of amazing musicians who can really jam. This particular show featured Jon Fishman, Peter Apfelbaum, Jamie Janover, Julee Avallone, Jamie Masefield, Reed Mathis, and Matt Butler. This "Interactive Improvisational Experience" is conducted by Matt Butler using a combination of wild hand signals, cue cards, white boards, and audience participation. Recently succesful in a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for a new album, be sure to keep an eye out for that.
