Instore Performance/Signing: October 14, 2017
Saturday, October 14th we hosted an extraordinary event with Mike Gordon, the bass player of Phish. We were celebrating the release of his solo album OGOGO. With some long time Phish fans on staff, we saw plenty of hi-fives, and smiles. Fans were in a joyous, party mood, and they were thankful for his time at this very special show. The crowd was fantastic, there were so many people with young kids that it lent itself to that hippy vibe I love so much about Phish culture. I was so caught up in jamband spirit I started calling my co-workers “Brother” as I ran around the shop to check on things. There were over 200 fans in the autograph line and an extra hundred folks joined us for the performance portion. It was a short set of super grooves, and Gordon’s bass playing prowess was fantastic live. At times I got caught in some melodies that were so fun I just started to dance-wiggle. During the meet & greet he was joined by his long time collaborator, guitarist Scott Murawski. I was filled with a lot of nervous excitement, but Mike and Scott were super friendly with us all, and the entire band and crew were so professional they pulled off this small set with grace. Thanks Mike!!!
