Dr. Jack McConnell (1925-2018). The world has lost a brilliant physician, a talented entertainer, a noted philanthropist, loving family man and an all-around great guy.
Jack performed with the band on multiple occasions, always featuring his signature song “Bill Bailey, Won’t You Please Come Home?”. You can watch his last (and what he considered his finest) performance with Phish from 2010 in N. Charleston right here. He loved meeting and interacting with all the fans and singing with the band was one of the great joys of his life.
Contributions in his memory can be directed to volunteersinmedicine.org, an organization he started that helps provide health care to underserved populations all across the country.
