Rift formed in the summer of 2023 amongst four friends that love playing the vast Phish catalog. Matt Agostini (bass) and Matt Elberson (drums) have played in previous Phish tributes while Sean Coyne (guitar) and John Hildenbrand (keys) have always wanted to. Weʼre pumped to be a part of the incredible Philadelphia Phish community. Weʼve built chemistry playing together in Control for Smilers, Uncle Jawnʼs Band, The 9ʼs Funk Band, Keezus, and Four Lean Hounds. Together we have seen over 300 Phish shows, eaten our fair share of shakedown grilled cheeses, and canʼt wait to share our renditions of Phish songs with you.
NJ based, Learn 2 Ween is Philadelphiaʼs newest old-school style Ween tribute! Just like Gene and Dean in their formative years, Learn 2 Ween is a two-man live musical show. The performance experience includes Jeff Mann (drummer of Consider the Source) covering bass, keys, drums, and more. Alongside him is Dr. Scorpion, famed in the Ween community for his educational YouTube page, Learn 2 Ween where he has garnered an audience of over 5k subscribers and amassed over 200, that's right OVER 200 Ween guitar lesson videos. Together they recreate a wide range of the Ween catalog in the loop de loop format as well as in a more traditional acoustic style.
