Skyballs, Parker Smith and the Bandwith
Skyballs is Atlanta's premiere Phish tribute band. Having attended over 200 shows between its members (give us a break, we're not that old), the group prides itself on embodying the musical freedom, spontaneity, and ambition that has earned Phish its devoted following. From the soaring melodicism of Harry Hood to the deep funk of Sand, Skyballs is committed to accurately reproducing the incredible songs in Phish's diverse repertoire. The band enjoys producing high-energy shows that contain dream setlists for both its members and the Phish faithful.
Atlanta native, Parker Smith landed his first gig in September 2010 and fans immediately took a liking to his unique sound. Musical influences range from Taj Mahal to Talking Heads, self-described “acoustic roots with electric sprouts.” However, the band members attempt to steer clear of staying in one genre.
