'A' Train featured "Paul," an unknown audience member, on saxophone and included a Dixie tease from Trey. During Contact, Trey wished the crowd "Merry Christmas" several times, quoted Blue Bayou (with slightly altered lyrics) in a falsetto voice and teased Auld Lang Syne at the end of the song. This show featured the first known Phish performance of Funky (Breakdown). Funky (Breakdown) and Price of Love featured guest appearances by Ninja Mike (vocals) and Magoo (guitar). Fish intermittently played trombone and vacuum during the latter. Melt featured a Fish drum solo. The vocal jam at the end of Sneakin' Sally included Changes (David Bowie) and My Sharona (The Knack) quotes. Ya Mar's lyrics included references to wild pigs and Paul.
