    I think the wurlitzer is still there el dude

    i can almost hear it during the miami Reba
    kind of the only way to do Reba

    not using it as much
    know he’s always on the clav or piano
    not the hammond as much anymore either

    I def think Trey’s Leslie may be gone

  2. c0wfunk Says:

    I noticed the leslie at miami . .not sure if it was there the rest of the year. It is in the back, behind trey’s stack, centered w/ a couple candles on it. I noticed it kick in during First Tube at one point, the whole room changed..

    I guess I thought page had a rhodes, not a wurlie? Am I mistaken?

  3. albert walker Says:

    oh no cowfunk

    there were a few

    my whole crew was just getting over the light up and then they dropped that

    I was a jaded kid just going to shows to work in 99
    so was the rest of my crew

    they caught our attention and then destroyed it all weekend

    Corina was def one of the highlights

  4. albert walker Says:

    most jazz, jam band cats rock wurlitzer’s

    remove spaces to see link above

    On tour, McConnell plays a Yamaha C7 piano outfitted with hammers from a German Steinway. A Helpinstill pickup run through an Avalon U5 direct box, plus an Earthworks Piano Mic system, feed the P.A. Then there’s the Hammond B-3, Hohner Clavinet, Rhodes, Moog Little Phatty, and Yamaha CS-60.

    I don’t have a link, but I saw a video clip a few weeks ago in which Page showed a journalist his entire touring rig that was in use in 09. It was for a magazine, can’t remember which one.

    Vague, I know, but I’m sure if you look for it you can find it

    Also, I haven’t looked in awhile, but both Wikipedia and treyanastasio.com use to have Trey’s stage rig mapped out, as well

  11. c0wfunk Says:

    chef – there is a link from the above story to that – it was in keyboardmag.com also

  12. ChefBradford Says:

    nice cowfunk, I think that’s the article I was talking about

  13. neemor Says:

    @ sumo:

    “The stand alone GW show seems well positioned to be a special night, with SPAC being hugely nutz.”

    ^ terrifies me.

  14. Mr.Palmer Says:

    Right on William H.!!

  15. neemor Says:

    Park that kayak on a stone.

  16. joe Says:

    my girlfriend recently uploaded a shitload of my old cds onto a new ipod and I have it going on shuffle here at work today. One of my old favorites, Back Where it All Began from An Evening with the Allman Brothers disc 2 came on. Man did I used to love that jam. Dicky Betts is all attitude. I wanted to play like him so badly to the point that I can still only play minor scales and bend notes with furious anger 20 years later.

  17. joe Says:

    Question for the board: Would you be pissed if in 2010 Phish dropped most of the material that they used to play in the pre-95 era and really concentrated on working out the newer tunes on a nightly basis. Meaning you may not get your favorite tunes at all on tour and maybe would get some repetitive setlists BUT they got more experimental with the new songs?

  18. EL Duderino Says:

    That’s like saying the GD not doing China > Rider or something like that.

  19. Mr.Palmer Says:

    depends on the songs. I’m not giving up my Antelopes, Hood, Tweezers,an fluffheads. I can do without Possum, Sample, and stuff like that. Some songs must be in the rotation IMO

  20. joe Says:

    yep. No tweezer, No YEM, etc…(or very limited. once or twice a tour)

  21. joe Says:

    only TTE everynight πŸ™‚

  22. c0wfunk Says:

    I’d love to see them turn it all on its head and do everything a new way, featuring and focusing on the new stuff as much as possible.

    I’m pretty sure it would go over lead balloon style w/ most folks though.

  23. JerZ Says:

    AW- did you get to the “Light up or leave me alone” yet? How good are Page’s vocals? How bout that jam that comes out of it? Soooo good!

  24. c0wfunk Says:

    joe they sort of did this at the beginning of 97, in the first europe tour. The favorites gradually came back, and by the time they were in teh states that summer things were mostly back to “normal” though w/ some new things like mike’s and tweezer openers coming around that fall.

    And then we all know what happened that fall… A new approach can really help a band that has gotten bored with their material. I imagine we’ll see some shuffling by the end of summer, by the end of the year for sure.

  25. JerZ Says:

    AW- just read your post above- guess you did hear it
