On a beautiful sunny day in the rolling hills of Central New York, Toronto based Phish tribute band, The Lizards, played a fun filled set at Good Nature Farm Brewery in Hamilton, on Sunday, July 21. Many families came early to tour the brewery, sample delicious craft beer and snack on the farm’s menu. The Lizards delved deep into their playbook and gave an exciting, fun performance on many of Phish’s greatest hits and deep cuts.
The opening band, Peak, led off the show with a super funky set. Despite not having their bass player, due to a family emergency, they jammed on with funky grooves. Peak riffed off each other and were the perfect opening act to set a great evening up. Johny Young (keys) said, ‘It’s great to get up to the country out of Brooklyn. And we got to test out a few songs from our new album droppin in Spring of 2020!’
With the heat reaching nearly 93F, it was a scorcher. The Lizards played a hot set and the many in attendance left the shade of picnic tables and umbrellas to dance at this wonderful amphitheater. Rich Grossman (guitar) said, ‘We’ve never played here before so we didn’t know what we were getting into. We love this stage, this atmosphere and the venue has treated us so well.’ The crowd seemed very pleased as well, at this family friendly space while dancing and singing along with the beautiful sunset views over Good Nature Farm Brewery.
