Over the last 30 years, Anastasio has made his mark in rock, classical and theatrical circles. He is a founding member of Phish, one of today’s most successful and innovative rock bands. During the summer of 2017, Phish completed a residency at the world-renowned Madison Square Garden in New York — an unprecedented 13-night run known as The Baker’s Dozen. The residency brought Phish’s total performances at the famed arena to 52.

He has received Grammy award nominations for his recordings with Phish and for his solo work. Anastasio has collaborated with artists including Dave Matthews, Herbie Hancock, Carlos Santana, Toots and the Maytals, B.B. King and The Roots.

He co-wrote the music for the Broadway musical “Hands on a Hardbody,” which received a Tony nomination for Best Original Score in 2013. In the summer of 2015, Anastasio joined the surviving four members of the Grateful Dead for five stadium shows, which celebrated the band’s 50th anniversary and served as the band’s farewell shows.

Anastasio has performed his original compositions with numerous symphonies. The New York Times hailed his Carnegie Hall performance with the New York Philharmonic as “that rarest of rarities, a classical-rock hybrid that might please partisans from both constituencies.” In 2014, he debuted a new piece for guitar and orchestra, entitled Petrichor, on a West Coast orchestral tour that concluded with a performance at the Hollywood Bowl, marking his second performance with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
