Show Notes

This was an 18-and-over show billed as Phish with Special Guests: The Giant Country Horns. The Giant Country Horns were Dave “The Truth” Grippo, Russell “Killer” Remington and Carl “Gears” Gerhard. The band went to the Hampton Beach water slide park before the show. Shockra was the opening band. Although the venue agreed to allow dancing on a small dance floor next to the stage, security reportedly strictly enforced a seated-only policy throughout the rest of the venue, ejecting some people who insisted on standing or dancing in unauthorized areas. After Guelah Papyrus, the casino manager took the stage and asked the audience to stop dancing due to complaints from people in the arcade on the floor below the Ballroom. To keep the crowd’s feet off the floor, Trey responded with a dance-on-your chair contest with the prize being a date with Fish, who quipped “yeah, we’ll go play downstairs in the arcade”. After Weekapaug Groove, Trey said “we’ll be back in fifteen minutes…don’t fall through the floor.” Trey’s introduction of Fish during I Didn’t Know was as “the fourth member of the Giant Country Horns, Henrietta on vacuum.” There are no tapes of this show in the archives – the setlist was adopted from John Redmond’s audience recording.
