Currently celebrating their ten-year anniversary with a touring schedule jam-packed with headlining shows, festival hits, and special events, Pink Talking Fish brought their fusion of Pink Floyd, Talking Heads, and Phish to The Homestead in Morristown, NJ on Sunday.

After throwing down an unforgettable set at the regionally beloved Beardfest featuring guest appearances by Jimmy Law from NJ’s own Dogs in a Pile and vocalist Elise Testone on Friday, Pink Talking Fish shot over to New Martinsville, WV on Saturday to play at Back Home Festival before returning to the Garden State on Sunday, covering a distance of over 800 miles over the two days (about 14 hours of driving).

Once back at The Homestead, PTF delivered a dynamic two-set show. Set one featured a long, flowing sequence of seamless jams with Talking Heads’ “And She Was” sandwiched in the middle of old-school Phish tunes “Letter To Jimmy Page” and “Alumni Blues”. The band took a tour through “Cities” at the end of the set, unsure whether they were covering Talking Heads or Phish, before closing the set with another cover of a song sometimes covered by Phish, ZZ Top‘s “La Grange”.

Set two opened with “Mike’s Song”, which would remain unfinished until later in the set, as band transitioned into “You Sexy Thing” (another song Phish has covered). “Weekapaug Groove” would close the set before a spirited encore of Tlaking Head’s “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)” brought it home.

Pink Talking Fish has a busy year ahead, with upcoming summer and fall tour dates, a ten-year anniversary party, a “This Must Be The Cirque” Circus Show at the Capitol Theatre, and recently announced shows at Higher Ground in Burlington, VT and The Colonial Theatre in Keene, NH in December featuring The Giant Country Horns, who toured and recorded as Phish’s horn section.
