Artist Services/Company Manager, MASS MoCA
Phish PhanÂ Extraordinaire
I’ve been listening to Phish since 1995. My first show was in Hartford, Conn., June 21, 2004.
In 10 years of being the Artist Services/Company Manager at MASS MoCA, I have worked with over 600 visual and performing artists. Yet, I was still speechless when I heard that Phish’s amazing bassist Mike Gordon was coming to North Adams!
As if that was wasnâ€™t enough, Mike and his bandmate, Scott Murawski from Max Creek, scheduled a conversation about the of song writing and collaboration process from their new album Overstep â€” put together after a trip here, to MASS MoCA.
It was the only time on their tour they did something like a song dissection! What a huge honor for MASS MoCA and for the only 200 people that will hear from both Mike and Scott directly. A rare experience for any fan.
The talk and the show were both incredible! Â It was so great to see MASS MoCA full of true fans here, who come together as a Phamily before everyone makes plans for the for the Phish summerÂ tour. Just another reason that I love my job!
Thatâ€™s right, the â€śAll Time Best!â€ť
