Smart bets: JAZZ IS PHSH

Musical duo the Chase Brothers were surprised to find that many of their fellow musicians, across genres and ages, were secretly fans of the jam band Phish (the brothers also count themselves among the closeted groupies). This discovery inspired their Phish tribute, JAZZ IS PHSH, an opportunity for musicians of all types to embrace and reinterpret their favorite songs from the long-touring band. Composed of a rotating cast of experienced players, the tribute band reimagines Phish hits with an instrumental twist. In anticipation of a debut album, due out next spring, JAZZ IS PHSH recently announced a nationwide tour. The band will stop in Asheville at the Salvage Station on Saturday, Dec. 17, at 9 p.m. $15. salvagestation.com. Photo courtesy of the band

    Well known bassist Cody Wright is currently touring with the band, and has many friends here in his hometown! It promises to be a great show. See you there!
