Jazz is Phsh:
JAZZ IS PHSH is an instrumental tribute to Phish inspired by the popular tribute to The Grateful Dead, “Jazz is Dead”. JAZZ IS PHSH 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! The arrangements and performances of the band are built around their upcoming album which will feature many amazing musicians including Dennis Chambers (Santana, Miles Davis, Parliament Funkadelic), Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band, The Flecktones), Chris Bullock (Snarky Puppy), Michael Ray (Sun Ra, Giant Country Horns, Cosmic Crewe), Kofi Burbridge (Tedeschi Trucks Band, Aquarium Rescue Unit, Trey Anastasio Band), Grant Green Jr. (Groove Masters), Anthony Wellington (Victor Wooten Band), & many more!

Founded in 2015 by The Chase Brothers, Adam Chase and Matthew Chase, JAZZ IS PHSH 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 PHSH provides an exploration of Phish music unlike anything else.

Baked Potatoes: Beginning strictly as a party band, Baked Potatoes made their debut on April 20, 2013 during a concert that was put on by NORML on the campus of SUNY Oneonta. From that moment on Baked Potatoes continued to grow as a band, recording 2 E.P.'s (Waiting for the Weekend and Welcome to the Bus), opening up for artists such as Sammy Adams, H.R., John Brown's Body, and Rubblebucket and touring down the east coast with Samurai Pizza Cats. Their full-length album, "Loaded" was released April 20, 2016 (3 year anniversary of the band's inception) and can be found on Apple Music, Spotify, Youtube, Bandcamp, and any other music streaming services.
Chris Eves and the New Normal: Chris Eves and the New Normal blur the lines between rock, funk, and blues with a healthy dose of jam band influences. Thoughtful lyrics blend seamlessly with solid roots rock riffs, pop sensibilities and, catchy hooks. Based out of Syracuse NY, the band has shared the stage with such diverse artists as the Zac Brown Band, Jon Fishman of Phish, Turkuaz, Gov't Mule, Cheap Trick, Gregg Allman and many others. 
Their SAMMY award nominated debut album is now getting airtime on over 30 radio stations, a feature in Relix Magazine and is now available on most digital media services, including Spotify, iTunes, SoundCloud and Pandora.
