PHOOTYKITS PARTNERS WITH THE GIANT COUNTRY HORNS
It is an honour to collaborate with the GIANT COUNTRY HORNS to celebrate 30 years since that magical tour in the summer of 1991 where they shared the stage with Phish.
THE GIANT COUNTRY HORNS
The Giant Country Horns were a group of musicians who joined Phish for 14 concerts during the band's 1991 summer tour.
The horn section, named after "Giant Country" White Bread, added new arrangements to classic Phish songs including "Suzy Greenberg," "Stash," "Split Open and Melt" and many other originals and cover songs.
The original trio included Dave Grippo on alto saxophone, Russell Remington on tenor saxophone, and Carl Gerhard on trumpet. Trey Anastasio frequently announced the lineup using their nicknames: Dave "The Truth" Grippo, Russell "Killer" Remington, and Carl "Gears" Gerhard.
This lineup can be heard on Live Phish Volume 19 (July 12, 1991)
The kit design borrows a color scheme inspired by the dashing and daring suits worn onstage by the Giant Country horns on that tour, with a gold trim to symbolize the horns. The latter is obviously a predominant theme throughout the kit, both as a color divider on the kit front and back, but also as a subtle overlay pattern on the white part.
At their request, proceeds from the sales of this kit will go to the Rawson Saunders Institute in Austin, TX, which prepares educators for teaching basic language skills to all students, including those with dyslexia and other language-learning difficulties.
Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity.
