Keep Tahoe Woo! Stickers and Shirts

Inspired by the epic jam in Tahoe, here’s the obvious adaption of the ubiquitous Lake Tahoe icon on t-shirts and stickers. The first round of printing (which he did all by himself) was in high demand and sold out quickly.  He’s returned to make these available in more colors and in stickers – see below for ordering links. 10% of the all profit go directly to The Mockingbird Foundation!

There is quite a background on this design. Remember the “Keep Trey Sober” stickers?  The original version that design is based on is “Keep Tahoe Blue,” a non-profit “dedicated to protecting, restoring, and advocating for the ecosystem health and scenic beauty of the Lake Tahoe Basin.”  You can check them out here:


In order to make these widely available and sold on-demand, he is using Zazzle to handle printing and shipping. They will handle all sales logistics: shipping, handling, returns/exchanges, etc. They have a 100% guarantee and frequently run sales, discounts, etc., so be sure to read all the fine print before ordering!

AJ Masthay’s Print For The Phamily Poker Classic 3

Only a week and a half until the band steps on stage at Bangor to kick off their summer tour! If you’re going out to the Tahoe shows, and you like poker, check this out. Great cause, great print!


Via Phish.net:

Lake Tahoe is looking an awful lot like Gamehendge as Evil King Wilson plays his winning hand on this gorgeous new print created by master printmaker AJ Masthay for the upcoming Phamily Poker Classic 3 charity poker tournament. This 5-color linoleum block print was hand-crafted in an edition of 150, and the only way to get one is by joining the tournament at Harveys Lake Tahoe on July 31st. Held to benefit The Mockingbird Foundation, the Phamily Poker Classic 3 features a generous cash prize pool, great bonus prizes, and one of these stunning prints for each player.

Our plan is to give each player the print number that corresponds to their final position in the tourney. So, for example, if you bust out in 100th place, your print will be #100. But for those with the luck and skill to make the final table, we have something special. AJ has created a unique Final Table Variant of the print … an edition of only 10 … on a special wavy metallic paper that really pops. Check it out here! The only way you’re going to get one of these beauties is by making the final table, so get practicing your cards!

Seats are filling quickly for the Phamily Poker Classic 3, and once people feast their eyes on this print, we anticipate a quick sellout. Sign up today to reserve your print and seat in the Phamily Poker Classic 3, and we’ll see you in Tahoe!

Phamily Poker Classic 2013: Harvey’s Lake Tahoe

Phamily Poker

Here we go again!  We are extremely happy to announce the Phamily Poker Classic 3 to you first!
The Phamily Poker Classic 3 is once again a Texas Hold Em Event and will take place on July 31st at Harvey’s casino in Lake Tahoe.  This is the same casino that is hosting Phish’s July 30th & 31st shows. Seats at this Phamily Poker Classic tournament are very limited as it will be played only during the afternoon of the 31st.  As at the prior Classic tournaments, blinds and chip stacks will be structured so that nobody will miss a note of Phish.
This tournament will once again benefit our favorite charity The Mockingbird Foundation.  The entry fee will be $140 and at least half of that amount will go directly into the prize pool along with a slew of great non-cash prizes that will be raffled off throughout the tournament.  Every player in the Phamily Poker Classic 3 will receive a limited edition custom poster by AJ Masthay and the final table will get a special signed/numbered edition different from the rest in the number that they’re eliminated!  We anticipate a large number of exciting non-cash prizes to give away!  I’m sure you all remember the great prizes we’ve had in the past. The remainder of the buy in will go to the expenses for the tournament and for the donation to The Mockingbird Foundation.
In appreciation of you having participated in our past events we will be opening up the opportunity to purchase a seat in the Phamily Poker Classic 3 for you in a special pre-sale that will last until Wednesday April 10th, prior to the general on-sale at 10am pt (1:00pm et) on April 10th. The special pre-sale is open now.  You can purchase you seat here.  We hope that you’ll help us sell this event out, whether you can attend or not, by telling other fans out there how much you enjoyed the past tournaments.
We hope that you will join us again and make this event as special as the previous Phamily Poker Classic tournaments, which raised over $10,000 for The Mockingbird Foundation.  With your continued support, we can keep these events happening and support a great cause.
