JAZZ IS PHISH is an instrumental tribute to Phish inspired by the popular tribute to The Grateful Dead, Jazz is Dead. JAZZ IS PHISH is a collective of prominent musicians from the Jazz and Jam scenes that have come together in their appreciation of Phish music to reimagine Phish in an instrumental, jazz fusion setting!
Founded in 2015 by The Chase Brothers, Adam Chase and Matthew Chase, JAZZ IS PHISH has quickly become a world renown tribute to Phish, attracting some of the most influential musicians in the jazz and jam scenes to take part in this collective approach to paying tribute to one of the most important and influential bands in Rock and Roll history.
With the music of Phish being both largely improvised as well as highly composed, the framework of Phish’s music is the perfect vehicle for exploring in an instrumental setting. The compositions are both challenging and adaptive. JAZZ IS PHISH provides an exploration of Phish music unlike anything else.
Dewpoint is a four-piece jam band from Boston, Massachusetts. Establishing their current lineup in early 2015, they have quickly secured fans across the northeast, playing many staple venues in the area (ie. Brighton Music Hall, The Middle East Downstairs, The Spot Underground, The Stone Church). Their musical style spans many genres, weaving laid-back funk, progressive rock, and psychedelic grooves seamlessly under irresistibly catchy lead lines. On any night, Dewpoint pushes songs to new limits by exploring new feels, taking improvisational risks, and concocting set lists that allow musical themes and soaring melodies to be revisited and re-imagined throughout the course of a show. With an ever-expanding catalog of original music and noteworthy covers, every show is a unique musical experience.
