PHUN is a Band from Madison, WI that plays the music of Phish. But PHUN is so much more than a tribute band. PHUN is an idea. To truly enjoy the music for the music’s sake, and create events for people who love a good live show on a smaller scale than going to Alpine Valley for the real thing. Phish doesn’t get to Wisconsin all that much these days, and that’s where PHUN fills in the gaps for show hungry phans.

After a blistering fall tour reviving Phish’s epic musical Gamehendge, the band will appear once again at The High Noon Saloon in Madison on Friday, December 16th. Special guests Laser Cats will be on hand to offer up the music of The Grateful Dead. Some Phish and some Dead for Hippy Xmas!

Hippy Xmas has become an annual event at The High Noon Saloon. The idea is a secular holiday celebration where everyone is welcome to party while reflecting on 2017 and enjoying the music. It serves as a thank you of sorts to all of the folks who support PHUN all year long, and a chance to pair the music of Phish with the music of the Grateful Dead.

Come for the Phish, stay for the PHUN!

PHUN was created by guitarist Mike Scieszinski in 2009. Almost ten years later, the band that began as a Phish Tribute band from Madison has grown into a musical juggernaut in the Midwest scene. Playing the best venues and drawing huge crowds of Phish hungry Phans.

“Part of our success is the energy and band chemistry we bring to the show,” said Scieszinski. Members of PHUN have been playing together on and off for two decades, and it shows!

With the advent of social media, songs and setlists are voted on by the fans. It's a great way for the band and the audience to share the love of Phish that brought them together in the first place and serves as an interactive experience; guiding the show by crowd-sourcing.

Almost anyone who is a fan of Phish, is going to enjoy a PHUN show (for obvious reasons). The band aims to create a safe space for any and all to enjoy the groove; good vibes, kindness and respect. Some sit, some stand, some dance, and some sway; but everybody is entitled to a little PHUN!

PHUN is excited to announce that they have brought the performance to a new level with a killer light show! Phish has been creative and unique with their lighting, and PHUN has followed suit. You don’t want to miss it.

PHUN is also extremely excited to announce that this year for Hippie Xmas, they will be joined by the BBQ Boys Horn section for a truly amazing, Phish-style celebration.
