Dan Kanter Teases Phish on SNL
Dan Kanter teased “Sand” by Phish during Justin Bieber’s performance on Saturday Night Live last night. The riff made a brief appearance during an acoustic rendition of Bieber’s song “As Long As You Love Me.” Kanter, who was an avid Phish fan long before he started playing guitar for the teen pop superstar, can be heard making the tease at around the 2:52 mark on the video above. You can read our interview with Kanter from August of last year here.
In related news, Phish references managed to find their way into another NBC program last week. Parks and Recreation writer Harris Wittels—also a fan of the band—wore two different Phish t-shirts while making a cameo on the show. Our recent interview with Wittels can be found here.
