The members of The National also have deep roots in the Phish world. One of the band’s earliest predecessor, Equinox—which featured future National members Aaron Dessner (guitar), Bryce Dessner (guitar) and Bryan Devendorf (drums)—covered The Allman Brothers and the Grateful Dead and has a sound that saxophonist Kevin Seal described as “Sorta jammy and the product of listening to a lot of Phish and classic rock radio.” Bryan Devendorf and his brother Scott, who play bass and guitar in The National, also took National frontman Matt Berninger—the only non-jam fan in the group—to a Deer Creek Phish show once. As Aaron Dessner recalled on Jambands.com in 2009, “He listened to one song and then went and hid in the car. Matt can still not understand at all how any of us can stomach Phish but pretty much everyone else in the band grew up on their music.”
