Phish fans had to be let down easy. For them it was more than a band. It was a calling, a community, its concerts a gathering of nomadic multitudes, a place to sing along or dance the hippie shake. Phish couldn't just break up. So a surprise announcement late last year declared that Phish was merely taking a hiatus from the blend of rock, jazz and folk that spearheaded the '90s "jam band" movement.

For readers unaware of its music or its history, the gist of Phish is this: It is the relatively young band that picked up where the Grateful Dead left off. There are many obvious parallels. Still, it isn't fair simply to write Phish off as the most convenient sanctuary for neo-hippies disenfranchised when the 1995 death of Jerry Garcia did in the Dead after a 30-year run.

Jam band Phish isn't forgetting about fans who can't attend any of its sold-out reunion shows this weekend in Hampton, Va. The group will make high-quality MP3 downloads of each performance available free the following day. "We really wanted to show our gratitude to all the Phish fans for their support and the overwhelming response they've had to these shows," lead guitarist/vocalist Trey Anastasio said in a statement issued Wednesday. "We only wish everybody could be there."

"Is this like anything you've ever seen?" asked Jake Steinberg, 20, a college student from California. Steinberg was just one of the small army of Phish fans who flew here in hopes of scoring tickets and getting inside Madison Square Garden on New Year's Eve to see the band's first live show since its hiatus about two years ago.

It's a familiar rock 'n' roll scene outside the Greek Theatre as hundreds of eager fans mill about in the crisp night air, hoping to score a ticket to a sold-out show. The hair tends to be long and the shirts tie-dyed. Hacky Sacks are being kneed and toed, and handicrafts are peddled. The rhythms of impromptu drum circles energize the atmosphere--which is thick with the smell of pot and incense.
