Vail, Colo., Feb. 7, 2022 — Over the past three decades, Trey Anastasio has forged a multi-faceted career as a composer, guitarist and vocalist, winning acclaim in rock, classical and theatrical circles. He is a founding member of Phish, one of today’s most successful and innovative rock bands. Anastasio has received Grammy nominations for his recordings with Phish and for his solo work, and he’s collaborated with other world-renowned artists including Dave Matthews, Herbie Hancock, Carlos Santana and many others.

Since 1998, Anastasio has toured and recorded with several backup musicians, including several side-projects organized and led by the guitarist and composer.

Throughout its history, his band started as a trio and has continued to add members.
In addition to his well-known music, Anastasio has also written a Broadway musical, “Hands on a Hardbody,” and is an accomplished orchestral composer.
