Mike Gordon @ Evolve?

Recommended Posts

neet, I'm pretty sure I'm going to be there this year since I'm pretty sure I'm taking a trip out east at that time and that's one of the plans. Thanks for the heads up

Major league impressiveness. I think this wife's family is from Nova Scotia factor may have worked really well to their advantage, that and him wanting to support this project and a good solid even maybe beefy offer.

EVOLVE FESTIVAL

AUG. 4th

Mike Gordon is best known as the bass player and vocalist for the legendary rock band Phish. Heralded as “the most important band of the Nineties." by Rolling Stone Magazine, Phish was one of the top concert draws starting in the early 1990’s until they disbanded in 2004.

Gordon, an accomplished banjo, piano, guitar, and percussion player met Trey Anastasio, Page McConnell and Jon Fishman at the University of Vermont, where Phish began in mid 1980. Gordon's influence is the most obvious in Phish's many different renditions of various bluegrass, calypso and even traditional Jewish songs. He also contributed by singing, usually adding to the higher end of the harmony spectrum, as well as writing off-beat lyrics to amusing but thought-provoking songs.

Gordon played many roles in Phish. Until the band became too big for self-management, he dealt with practically all public relations and fan communication, such as answering fan mail, managing funds, and booking gigs. Gordon wrote 17 Phish original songs and coauthored 22 Phish tracks.

Besides his musical talent, Gordon is known for his bizarre sense of humor exemplified in his 1997 book of short stories, Mike's Corner and as an independent filmmaker. Gordon directed Phish's only music video, 1994's "Down with Disease," releasing his first full-length feature film, Outside Out, in 2000, and also directed Rising Low, a documentary about Gov't Mule and their late bass player, Allen Woody.

Mike Gordon's latest projects include performing with Trey Anastasio, The Benevento/Russo Duo, Leo Kottke and Ramble Dove; a group he put together to tour behind his first solo album “Outside IN†in 2003. Ramble Dove, features Vermont musicians Brett Hughes, Scott Murawski, Gordon Stone, Neil Cleary and Marie Claire. Ramble Dove, whose name was taken from Mike Gordon's country star cameo in his own movie Outside Out, pays homage to classic Nashville honky-tonk and bluegrass.

HUGE addition by Evolve, nice work guys!

There's a lot of talk around these parts that people are disappointed in the Shoreline line-up, and with the festivals so close together date-wise this year, many people are going to be choosing one or the other.

and it's mike, he'll probably be running around the crowd as he is prone to do so I might finally get to thank at least one of the phish crew.

I'm really looking forward to hearing Ramble Dove. A friend of mine was listening to them last night and said they're pretty good.
