PHUN is a Jamband from Madison, WI that specializes in the music of the iconic Jamband Phish. For almost 10 years, the band has brought the gospel according to Fishman to devoted phans all over the midwest. Founded by guitarist Mike Scieszinski in 2009, this group attacks the Phish canon with the focus, energy and the respect it demands.
The songs on PHUN's setlists are often decided upon with input from as many people as possible. Songs get voted onto a setlist over social media; allowing an interactive set list experience for each show. People have described that moment they hear the song they rallied for online played by the band as: “mildly fulfilling.” And: "Proof I'm a Phish nerd."
“There's a reason people keep comeing out to these shows time after time. This band has an energy. Maybe chemistry is a better word, the four of us have played together for most of our lives in some fashion or another. What ever it is, it's clear that something is working and we are just enjoying that.” says Scieszinski (about PHUN).
PHUN incorporates as much of The Phish Experience as possible into each performance. Vacuums? Trampolines? Wooks? Crazy Lights? Anything is possible at a PHUN gig. Except for Petrichor. Not gonna happen, we have lives. Great song though.
Almost anyone who is a fan of Phish will enjoy a PHUN show (for obvious reasons). The band aims to create a safe space for any and all to enjoy the groove; propagate good vibes, kindness and respect. Some sit, some stand, some dance, and some sway; but everybody is entitled to a little PHUN!
Let's go Phishin'!
