During its cycle of year and change, Dinner and movie has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for an assortment of charitable causes. The beneficiary of the final edition of Dinner and movie is Phans for racial equity (PHRE). PHRE promotes racial equity and respect for differences within the Phish music community and more broadly and beyond, striving to create a more welcoming space for people of all races and ethnicities, keeping in mind mind the many ways in which race / ethnicity intersects with gender, gender identity / expression, sexual orientation, disability and other identities.
The goal of PHRE is to facilitate education and thoughtful engagement, first and foremost within the Phish community, about race and its intersection with other issues; give people the tools to create a more welcoming environment; and activate our community to positively impact racial equity in the United States more broadly.

Well, gang, here we are. After fifteen months of regular broadcasts (mainly) on Tuesday – first weekly, then monthly –Dinner and movie coming to an end. The series has continuously provided respite for quarantined Phish fans across the world, a way to connect the community, if only for a few hours, in a way that couldn’t happen in person at its strongest. of the pandemic.
What started as a stopgap amid an unprecedented period of uncertainty for live music has become something Phish fans always remember. Even years later, when that ‘gap year’ is a distant memory and we’re all used to sticking together once again, someone will ask, between sips of a Heady Topper, “Hey, remember? when they used to broadcast an old show for free on Tuesday nights and we would all tune in? ” Of course my friend. That was the time.
But as much as Dinner and movie played a role in helping Phish fans through 2020, we’re unlikely to miss the series too much greatly. Why? Because we have a real tour ahead of us, with all the excitement, surprises, intrigue and experiences that come with it. Real-time webcasts, too, for people still playing at home (just to say it).
The gears of a return to action have already started to turn. Since the last payment of Phishing Dinner and movie, Trey Anastasio is back on stage, hosting a series of five-night solo shows with the pianist Jeff Tanski and the Rescue Squad Ropes-a product of Beacon jams—Of which three nights at After-sales service and his return from two nights at Flagship theater, which marked the hall’s first full capacity audience since last March. This weekend he will play against thousands of others when Oyster head securities The fishing music festival on Saturday July 3.
We really enjoyed our weekly / monthly dives in the Dinner and movie memories of past years. With that said, we’re ready to make new memories with the Phish, and this opportunity is finally on the horizon: The Phish Tour 2021 is kicking off. less than a month. Let it flow.
So far, the Phish team have come up with a fantastic selection for the final installment of the series brought on by the pandemic. July 20, 1991 at Arrowhead Ranch marks the oldest full show to get the Dinner and movie treatment, the only older edition being the ‘avant-garde’ set of two videos from 1/5/89 in Northampton, MA from episode 15.

The performance comes from a historic tour in the Phish lore, the 14-show July 1991 series featuring the Giant country horns, an accompanying brass trio composed of Russ remington on the tenor saxophone, Carl Gerhard on the trumpet, and Dave grippo on alto sax.
Much like the Rescue Team has done with Trey’s solo arsenal throughout Beacon jams and their recent solo shows, the presence of the Giant Country Horns in 1991 added a new layer of life to various staples of Phish as the band’s career path entered a rapid upward trajectory.
the one tonight Dinner and movie show – which included opening sets from Spin doctors and The Authority– sees the GCH adding its brass ornaments to Phish classics like “Suzy Greenberg”, “The Landlady” (with also René Lopez percussion), “Bathtub Gin”, “David Bowie”, “Golgi Apparatus”, “Stash”, “Possum”, and more. “Reba” was not one of the songs to receive the GCH treatment on 7/20/91, but it did see Phish hand over the song’s whistle function to Carl Gerhard.
The horns also allowed Phish to explore more jazz-oriented tunes, Duke Ellingtonfrom “Caravan” to “Flat Fee”, not to mention their assists on “You Enjoy Myself” (with a hamburger-based vocal jam) and “Dinner and a Movie” —which, for those who count the score, to appropriately makes it the first and only Dinner and movie will actually show “Dinner and a Movie”.
So log on, cook some food, donate a few dollars to this month’s cause and enjoy. The past year has been far from ideal, but with Dinner and movie to wait impatiently for Tuesdays, it’s just a little more bearable. Now let’s put this show on the road …
