Trey met numerous future Phish members during his undergraduate years, including Jon Fishman, Mike Gordon, and Jeff Holdsworth. This group of buddies began performing at the campus cafeteria for the first time in 1983. However, audience members did not always give the band a warm response.

 

Trey returned to New Jersey at one point and reconnected with his boyhood buddies Tom Marshall, Marc Daubert, and Page McConnell. These individuals would eventually join Pish as well. Trey also worked with Ernie Stires, who taught him a variety of musical abilities. Anastasio graduated from college in 1988, but he had transferred to Goddard College by then.

 

After the formation of Phish, the band gained a reputation for musical improvisation, jamming, and exploration of other genres. Since the band’s inception, Anastasio has functioned as the lead guitarist and lead vocalist. Phish released their debut album, “The White Tape.” in 1986. The famous album “The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday.” was released in 1988. Trey’s senior project for his final year at Goddard College was presented here.

 

Following the release of their second official record, Trey and the rest of the band began to take themselves more seriously and began practicing on a regular basis. This resulted in the release of their debut album, “Junta.” In the 1990s, they had achieved mainstream fame and embarked on a nationwide tour. They also garnered considerable MTV exposure. Eventually, in 2004, the group disbanded. Nonetheless, in 2009 they reformed and issued a reunion album. After this reunion, they also resumed rehearsing together and performed different performances as Phish.

Trey was handed a reduced felony drug conviction and sentenced to complete a 14-month program consisting of drug tests, community service, and rehabilitation after pleading guilty. His conviction was reduced to a misdemeanor when he completed this program. Since 2007, Anastasio has been abstinent.
