    Mitch was right on with his whole post…awesome night, once in a lifetime.
    If I could, I want to add a little of my individual perspective.
    I was on the floor, Row N, in front of Trey. About 30 feet away.
    Sound was perfect. Some will remember that my mom bought me these tickets, quite an experience going with mom, and I saw a few others that seemed to be in a similar situation. Including Trey!

    My mom overheard an older gentleman talking about meeting Trey before backstage. Turned out to be Dr. Anastasio and his wife. Trey looks just like his dad. Sue was there, too and was basically the event coordinator, saying hello to everyone. Seemed like most everyone in the first ten rows knew each other. Then I noticed thisreally tall guy that looked just like Tom Marshall sit right in front of us. Two seats up! It was Tom and this hot little number on his arm. (Turned out to be his daughter Anna who he wrote Water In The Sky and Pebbles for.
    I told my mom who that was and she’s like, “Just go say hi.” Irony is, if she wasn’t there, I wouldn’t have. I stuck out my arm and told Tom thanks for sharing BDTNL with us. He laughed and said, “you got it” or something. Good moment for me. The best, though, was being right between he and Trey so I could see Tom’s reaction to Trey’s musicianship. When Trey flubbed (which he did only once), Tom looked at Anna and Smiled. When Trey started the Chords of WITS, he looked at Anna and she put her head on his shoulder. Hopefully I wasn’t being too creepy staring at them (Kidding.sort of), but it was really cool to see. He said Good night afterwards and if I wasn’t with mom, might’ve followed him to after party.
    I want to comment also, I didn’t see the nitrous, but as far as representing, the yells were all perfectly timed and well-received by Trey and the orchestra. The best was the deafening silence after the vocal jam ended. It was so different and cool sounding, no one wanted a misplaced yell in there, so it was like ten seconds of absolute silence until Trey made a sheepish little grin and let us know it was okay. Great stuff.My mom’s sister and brother in law are on the Carnegie Board, so they go all the time. My mom thought it was a great night, thought it was nice to see the normally “stuffy” crowd loosen up a bit, seemed like a good time had by all. They had TTE CD’s for sale with Trey’s autograph which I bought, pretty bitchin souvenir.
    I had an effin blast.

    nice Neemor thats a classic experience that you’ll never forget

  16. Mr.Miner Says:

    anyone have pics of carnegie?

  17. Mr. Completely Says:

    outstanding arrangements and performance, especially the YEM, which was Trey’s best orchestral piece to date I think. The dynamics in that are just killer, and it’s fascinating to watch Trey play what seems like a minimally improvised solo – and one that develops a pretty edgy tone at one point, for the setting I mean.

    Kudos to the phish fans in the crowd – way to represent – the cheering was that of people who were listening and responding in the moment, the cheering of a knowledgable and enthusiastic crowd. No music lover could fail to respect that and it’s what musicians live for, I think, tangible proof that people are really truly listening….

    I’d buy a CD with that YEM on it in a second.

  18. CASE Says:

    Trey’s co-composer and orchestrator and the guy who turned YEM into this great orchestra piece, Don Hart, is going to be doing some more work with him for future shows with symphonies. Hoping for ‘Goodbye Head’.
