Most Phish fans are well aware of a new-to-Broadway musical called Hands on a Hardbody, one of Trey Anastasio’s numerous side-projects since the band formed in 1983. Turns out some of the music that Phish fans were hearing at soundchecks in 2009 and 2010 (“Burn that Bridge”) was co-written with new friend Amanda Green for an upcoming play. Those with some appreciation for the theatre in NY are going to get a chance to see and hear the music in action on Broadway, starting March 21st!
We’re excited to see the fan reaction once the musical debuts, and we’re very excited to giveaway a voucher for a pair of tickets to the show.
