On Mar. 3, Phish’s Jon Fishman and Mike Gordon performed at a Bernie Sanders rally in Vermont, along with The Mallett Brothers Band. The show took place at the Champlain Valley Exposition Center in Essex Junction, Vt.
The show featured a couple of guests, notably Gordon’s daughter Tessa, who provided vocals on a few songs. In addition, Maine-based rapper Spose sat in on vocals for “Off Road.” The rapper had also performed with Fish and The Mallett Brothers the day prior at a Sanders rally in Maine.
The show began with Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Fortunate Son,” followed by “Too Much Trouble.” Tessa Gordon then took the stage for “A Life That’s Good” and “Why Baby Why.” She would later return to provide vocals for Gordon’s original “Whirlwind” and Bob Dylan’s “Ring Them Bells.” The set concluded with another Gordon original, “Let’s Go.”
The rally was streamed by the Bernie Sanders YouTube channel; watch the complete performance below. (The set begins at around 47:00 in part one; part two contains just “Let’s Go.”)
