10 Years Ago Today: Phish Reunited at The Jammys (and Chevy Chase Impersonated Keller Williams)
Ten years ago tonight, the four members of Phish accepted the Lifetime Achievement Award from photographer Danny Clinch at the 7th Jammy Awards. This marked the first time the four musicians had shared a public stage together since they parted ways followed Coventry. This appearance presaged their eventual return as a band.
We share the band’s acceptance speech along with Trey Anastasio’s guest turn with The Fab Faux during “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” The evening also featured Phish keyboard player Page McConnell in an all-star jazz combo alongside legendary drummer Roy Haynes, saxophonist James Carter, trumpeter Nicholas Payton and bassist Christian McBride for “Magilla” and “Cars Trucks Buses,” which also appears below.
In addition, we’ve included Chevy Chase’s acceptance speech in which he appeared as Keller Williams to receive Song of The Year for “Cadillac,” as well as their duo performance.
The members of Phish accept their Lifetime Achievement Awards from Danny Clinch, Relix editor Dean Budnick and SiriusXM Jam_On host Jonathan Schwartz.
