|Originally Performed By||The Capitols|
|Original Album||Dance the Cool Jerk (1966)|
The last set of the "last Phish show" on 8/15/04 on the mud-soaked fields of Coventry, VT was so infused with melodrama that the band decided to blow off some steam with a fun up-beat tribute to a beloved crew member. Set to the heavy-driving rhythms of "Cool Jerk" by The Capitols, Phish paid tribute to monitor mixer Mark "Bruno" Bradley. Led by Page pounding the baby grand, a mini-drum solo by Fishman and a some start-stop jamming, Trey then paid a rambling but heart-felt tribute to the man behind the monitor board and substituted "Bru-no!" for the repeating signature "Cool Jerk!" After Bruno himself came out on stage a "Bruno Dance"/vocal jam ensued, followed by another tribute to production manager Hadden Hipsley and tour accountant Richard Glasgow with "Dickie Scotland."

The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
