Jam Band Stalwarts Phish Switch To DiGiCo SD7 Console During National Tour

During the first leg of the tour, FOH engineer, Garry Brown made the decision to switch mid-stream to a DiGiCo SD7.

After a five-year hiatus, the long-running quartet Phish reformed earlier this year, culminating in a new release (“Joy”) and subsequent 27-date national tour.

During the first leg of the tour, FOH engineer, Garry Brown made the decision to switch mid-stream to a DiGiCo SD7. After an exhaustive A/B comparison of his current console and the DiGiCo SD7, he decided to move to the SD7.

Aside from a brief outing with the band Third Day in 2004 on a DiGiCo D5, this was Brown’s first extensive hands-on experience with a DiGiCo console.

The national tour included headline spots at the Bonnaroo Music Festival, a four-night run at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver and a prime spot at “Festival 8” where the band revived two of its most storied traditions: blending a weekend-long campout with its once-regular Halloween gig.
