Since forming in 2013 for a debut gig in their hometown of Toronto, the four members of The Lizards – Canada’s premier Phish tribute act – have honed their improvisational skills while covering a massive swath of the Phish catalog. Focused on faithfully recreating the experience of a Phish concert, The Lizards have mastered the jamming styles that span Phish’s career and observed quirky traditions like trampolines, choreographed dances, secret language and even the inclusion of a dedicated lighting director.
Following their first American foray in 2017 (which featured a performance at Ithaca’s The Haunt, where the band recreated the setlist from Phish’s 10/1/90 show in the very same room), The Lizards are heading back across the border for a series of gigs that kicks off this Friday in Syracuse.
