Show Notes

This show was a private reception following Steve and Beth Drebber’s wedding. It consisted of one jazz set and one Phish set. This show yielded several new additions to the band’s jazz repertoire, including the 1st known “public” performances of: In A Mellow Tone (Duke Ellington cover), Four (Miles Davis cover), Lucky Seven (Dave Holland cover), Blue Sky (Dicky Betts cover), Night And Day (Cole Porter cover) and The Oh Kee Pa Ceremony. Several songs were dedicated to best man Jim Tasse and Jim gave a toast at the end of set I. Blue Sky was the newlyweds’ official first dance. During Suzy Greenberg, some guests did the “ceremonial first bounce” on mini trampolines while the band teased the Popeye Theme. Icculus included Steve (or somebody) on trumpet and guest vocals. A garter removal/bouquet toss and cake cutting followed Night And Day. Run LIke An Antelope featured Steve on drums and Fish on trumpet and trombone while the entire audience ran back and forth in an unsuccessful attempt to tip the boathouse over. After Run Like An Antelope, Steve said a few words of thanks and the band played a “Going Away Jam”. Contact was dedicated to everybody driving home, especially the newlyweds. Trey quipped “please drive safely and remember, the best offense is a good defense”. A long, tribal Drums/percussion jam followed Contact to end what Steve called a “dream wedding”.
