Marcus Rezak’s Gumbo: A 90’s Phish Experience

Friday, April 26 / 9:30 pm-1:00 am

/ $20

For Phans who yearn for 90s-style Phish shows and jams, Gumbo fulfills their nostalgic craving. Fronted by Marcus Rezak, the project recreates memorable shows from the 1.0 era in their entirety bolstered by a rotating cast of top-tier musicians who share Rezak’s fervor for the pivotal era in the band’s history. The inspiration began at The Rosemont Horizon on 10/3/99 when Rezak saw his first Phish show. That was the catalyst to see hundreds of subsequent shows as the budding guitarist absorbed the true essence of the band’s improvisational style and Trey Anastasio’s masterful guitar playing, singing, and songwriting.

Rezak travels with the authentic 90s rig featuring a genuine G2 Paul Languedoc guitar, Mesa Boogie Mark 3 Amplifier, original spec Languedoc Cabinets, and 90s pedalboard layout. Coupled with his studies as an alumnus of prestigious music programs at Berklee and DePaul Universities, Rezak possesses an unmatched insight into presenting the music of Phish by covering pivotal shows by the band to a T transcending the typical tribute band experience. Gumbo strives to recreate this special 1.0 era of Phish concerts, which only exist in time capsules of cassette tapes, CDs, and memories, giving Phans back that feeling from the 90s.

It’s important to mention that this band includes two longtime Crazy Horse veterans including the dazzling Anna Elva on drums. Anna is one of the most sought-after drummers in the Bay Area who plays with countless projects including China Dolls, Lovin’ Dead and Professor Jones. Her fluid style makes her look like a human octopus as she dances behind the kit with an ultra-jazzy touch. Fishman would approve! Fans of The Higgs know and love David Barsky and his funky, progressive bass stylings. Rather than just holding the groove, he has a deep understanding of how to propel jams into hyperdrive. Keyboardist Ed Lyons is new to us, but if he’s playing with these cats, there’s no doubt he’s a killer.
