A Phish After-Party featuring Medeski, Martin, Metzger & Cline
Saturday Dec 28, 2019 11:59 PM
Sony Hall, New York, NY


John Medeski and Billy Martin (both from Medeski Martin and Wood) will come together with Scott Metzger (JRAD) and Nels Cline (Wilco) for the first time, for one night only, for an evening of improvisational music after Phish performs at Madison Square Garden on December 28.

John Medeski - keyboards, organ
Billy Martin - drums & percussion
Nels Cline - guitar and electronics
Scott Metzger - guitars (6 string & 4 string electric bass an on some jams)

1. Crowd noise in places including vendors walking through crowd offering water & beer for sale
2. High pass filter (6db@100hz) added to reduce the boominess a bit. IMO Medeski was too loud in the mix from my position and the hall amplification favors the bass notes. Metzger played electric bass on a few jams but most of the bass was from Medeski.
3. Mics were pointed more or less up and this I think helped exclude surrounding crowd noise. Given amps on stage, and PA mounted from ceiling and sub-woofers on floor there wasn't any preferred "direction".
