Hampton Coliseum is a favorite venue of both the band and its fans. Phish has played a dozen shows there thus far and recorded the GRAMMY®-nominated, six-CD set Hampton Comes Alive at the venue in 1998.

Formed at the University of Vermont in 1983, Phish comprises keyboardist Page McConnell, guitarist/vocalist Trey Anastasio, drummer Jon Fishman and bassist Mike Gordon. The band soon became one of the top touring groups in the U.S. and, by 1998, Rolling Stone had proclaimed Phish the most important band of the decade.

"Phish offers something rare in pop: a long, complex, and completely different show every night," said the Village Voice. "Musically competent without fetishizing technique, Phish embraces a broad spectrum of rock, jazz, bluegrass, twentieth century compositional techniques, blissful extended jams, African groove experiments, psychedelic game playing, and free-form guitar ecstasy."

The group has released 11 studio albums, six concert videos and a series of 42 complete live concert CDs, including 11 on their own JEMP Records. In addition, they offer a selection of 88 full concert downloads at is Phish's digital download store and has been widely hailed as one of the first band sites to offer high-quality, unedited soundboard recordings of full concerts.

On November 18th, 2008, Phish will release At The Roxy on JEMP Records. The eight-CD box set chronicles the band's three-night stint at The Roxy nightclub in Atlanta, Georgia in February of 1993.
