Conor Brewster bring together a handful of hat and patch designs for summer tour.
SUMMER TOUR HATS
This special Limited Edition hat was made to commemorate these special Phish memories. The hat features a heather grey woolen fabric with navy blue accents. The brim and top button are lined in navy blue corduroy fabric. Embroidered on the front is Conor Brewster’s 2014 Summer Tour graphic. The hat is a snapback and is one size fits all. Only 50 hats are available online.
The front image is a reference to the sculpture “Reverence” which is located in Burlington, VT. As you drive into Burlington on RT 89, two large whale tails stick out of the earth on the side of the road. To the locals, these whale tails mean you are getting close to home (or leaving on a grand adventure!) The hat features this sculpture for a few reasons:
- It represents Burlington, the origin of PHISH
- The band members would see this sculpture every time they left Burlington to play a show, or arrived home after being on the road.
- We made the tails purple, as in ‘PURPLE HUMPBACK WHALE”
- Whales are kinda like big PHISH anyway, right? Kinda…
Embroidered on the side is the great, green state of Vermont, marked with a star on Burlington. It says “SINCE 83” above this image which represents Phish’s beginnings there in 1983!
The Summer Tour Patches
Same as the hats but in patch form! Order patches here!
Kuroda’s Lights Patch
This is a 4.5″ wide iron-on patch with many colors made to represent the effect of stage lights in the dark. This design was directly inspire by Lighting Designer Chris Kuroda’s Phish Rig. The scenes and effects he creates during the live shows are truly a form of fine art. Kuroda is so well respected by phans that he is often considered to be a “5th” member of the band, earning him the nickname CK5.
This patch was made to commemorate Phish’s 4th of July run in Saratoga, NY. Each firework on the patch represents a Phish song (or cover!) in the style of a vintage firework. This patch is a Limited Edition of 100, and measures 4.5″ in width. Great for hats, shirts, bags, and more!
