Georgia raised Jami Dudenhoeffer started drawing portraits in the 9th grade. Once the ability to draw portraits was recognized, they became the main focus in her art career. Her first favorite medium at this time was a set of cheap drawing pencils.
Not long after this point, Jami’s love for Phish began. She has her older brother, Don, to thank for that. He would come home to visit and she would hear him playing Phish. He would tell the stories of going to the shows and festivals. and Jami was hooked. Within weeks she went and bought ‘A Live One’ and within a matter of a few months Jami’s sister, Lexi, took her to her first show, 8/06/1998 Lakewood Amphitheatre Atlanta, GA. Lexi and Jami loved it to say the least. Since then, Jami has caught 31 Phish shows including Big Cypress.
Jami studied art as much as possible through high school completing somewhere around 20 commissioned portraits before 2001. Jami won many awards but what she is most proud of is winning first place in her region two years in a row in the Regional Congressional Recognition Competition … part of the prize for first place was to have your art hanging in the capitol of the United States for a year. You can only imagine the excitement of winning that one.
After high school, Jami continued drawing portraits and catching Phish shows whenever possible. In 2003, Jami moved to Northern California. Soon, she found her love for India ink and began to use that for painting her portraits. The Mike Gordon portrait is a good example of what her ink wash portraits look like. While in the North West, she took a Watercolor class at Humboldt State and found her NEW favorite medium. Watercolor is what was used to paint this Phish portrait.
Also while in California that year, Jami decided to draw musicians so she could make prints of them to sell at shows and festivals to help her afford travel costs and tickets. It worked. The first portrait was of Bob Marley. Drawn in pencil, professionally printed, signed and numbered out of 500. There is still a small amount of these available. After that, Jami drew Frank Zappa, Lee “Scratch” Perry, a Native American named Morning Star, Mike Gordon, David Byrne, John Lennon and most recently, the Phish portrait. She has had good luck selling these around the country.
In 2006, Jami moved to Nashville to be with her sweet one. There she decided to intern under her brother, Don, to learn Graphic and Web Design. After commuting back and forth from Nashville to Atlanta for over a year Jami and her boyfriend Jeremy moved to Atlanta. Jami studied under Don for almost another solid year and now works part time doing freelance design.
Throughout her art career, Jami has held many titles, Artist, Graphic Designer, Web Designer, Production Artist, Illustrator, Portrait Artist, Muralist, Watercolorist, etc. She is proud to ad ‘PhanArtist‘ to this extensive resume.
Jami Dudenhoeffer is still waiting for Phish to come play Lakewood again.

Nine years ago, Trey Anastasio Band, about as close to the way we see it today played it’s second show of a winter 2001 tour at the Landmark Theater in Syracuse, NY. Reflecting on these past shows of a rejuvenated TAB, replete with horns and female vocals that are better than ever, I gave a listen to this show from 2/22/01 and found the same band, 9 years younger and full of the same talent and jam potential as we have today.
For you listening pleasure, a solid sounding copy of 2/22/01, source unknown, but a very clean copy nonetheless.

Shortly after listening to this, I remembered that I very strangely wrote a review of this and sent it off to a few friends that night, a supreme rarity since I never wrote a music review until that night. Since I’m great at cataloging and saving everything (see PhanArt: The Art of the Fans of Phish for solid evidence of this OCD), my email review fo 2/22/01, written a few hours after the show ended.
Hello all. if you didnt get a chance to catch the trey and his band tour this time around, you missed an unbelievable show. it was well worth it, and even though the landmark is an amazing place to see a show, it is not run too well, ie, they ran out of water. but enough of that, on with the show.
After having some beers at the blue tusk, myself and some friends from faegans hit off the show. i wound up having seats right i front of the sound board, about 16th row. the show began with what may be an old cover, called ‘wee wee hours’, (i think). they then played a very funky song ‘push on till the day’, which went on for close to 15 minutes. then an amazing new song, ‘its true’, which sounded like ‘fast enough for you’/'waste’. ’mozambique’ was next, and that is a very funky salsa tune, which had trey dancing a bit. then the band busts out into the one song i knew i would hear, ‘gotta jiboo’. i hear this song every place i go, and every venue in the last 2 years. after a long jam which made t seem like jiboo as done, they went right back into it, then hit off a new one, burlap sack and pumps. the set ended with a rendition of guyute which cannot be compared to. acoustic, front and center of the stage, with trey teasing the crowd before going right back into the lyrics at the end.
after a 50 minute set break, the band returned and played, amazingly, ’rainy day woman’ by dylan, which was key with the horns. then a long funky version of ’sand’, (with trey on keys), followed by ’it makes no difference’. trey then tells the audience that they want to play this next song that they have only rehearsed once, called out ’mellow mood’, got ‘mellow mood’, great marley tune. then as a dedication to paul, he plays the ‘happy coffee song’. after that, while i rememberit clearly, i have no idea the names of the songs. but everything was great, including a 15 minute encore of ‘will it go round in circles’
ed note: It seems that I left out a good deal of the show, but it was a clearly a blast going there, being nine years younger and being at my first Trey show. One of my favorite Trey shows ever, as well as being my first of a (personally) epic 2001

Here on the PhanArt Blog, we aim to present the Phish community with the most unique fan creations, all the while raising money for The Mockingbird Foundation. We continue this effort with Wear Your Music’s Rock ‘n’ Roll jewelry!
Hannah Garrison began crafting bracelets made from used guitar strings for musician friends and their families. Steve Bernstein was trying to find a unique way for guitar strings to garner advertising attention. He posted an ad on Craigslist that read: “Do you have any ideas for interesting products made with guitar strings?” Hannah contacted Steve and the Artist Bracelets were born.
Wear Your Music’s philosophy centers around love of music and an innate desire to contribute to more than their own pocketbooks. They also make jewelry, bracelets specifically, out of guitar strings donated from select artists. Each guitar string bracelet is handcrafted from recycled fine silver and guitar strings used and donated by a wide variety of artists (some below, more here). The bracelets can slip over your hand or a custom clasp is added.
The best way to measure your size is to use a string and measure the widest part of your hand when your hand is the smallest—like if you were reaching into a pickle jar. Measure the string in inches and this is your size!
The bracelets are packaged in recycled DVD cases with certificates of authenticity. Profits are donated to charities selected by the artists. Each bracelet is custom made upon order and production time can take up to three weeks before item ships.
With over 150 artists, Wear Your Music Artist’s Bracelets are a must have for any live music fan! Hannah adds, “Wear Your Music has become a brand that represents the intersection of music, fashion, and philanthropy.” Steve adds, “In growing our business, we won’t lose sight of our original goals: not only to do well, but to do good.”
Select artists of note include:
Al Schnier, Barry Sless, Bela Fleck, Ben Harper, Bill Nershi, Bob Weir, Bonnie Raitt, David Grisman, Brendan Bayliss, Michael Kang, Buddy Guy, Carlos Santana, Chuck Garvey, Dave Schools, Derek Trucks, Dweezil Zappa, Eric Clapton, G Love, Gregg Allman, Jack Johnson, Mike Gordon, Jake Cinninger, Jim James, Jimmy Herring, John Bell, John Scofield, Jon Gutwillig, Keith Richards, Les Claypool, Marc Brownstein, Michael Franti, Oteil Burbridge, Pete Townshend, Reid Genauer, Rob Derhak, Trey Anastasio, Warren Haynes, Willie Nelson, Xavier Rudd and Ziggy Marley – and thats a SMALL sampling of the Artist Bracelets they custom make.
