Pork Tornado is a band co- founded in 1997 by Phish drummer Jon Fishman and Dan Archer record producer/engineer including Phishs "Lawn Boy" (guitar, vocals), Joe Moore (saxophone, vocals), Aaron Hersey (bass, vocals), and Phil Abair (keyboards, vocals).

The band played a number of country-western and rock originals as well as a number of standard covers. The group was an occasional side project for Fishman until Phish's hiatus in 2000. By 2002, Pork Tornado was Fishman's main priority. The band released an album in October of that year and embarked on their largest tour of the United States shortly thereafter. The tour was followed by a period of inactivity.

As of February 2013, Pork Tornado reunited, for at least one reunion show in South Burlington, Vermont.

They are also playing at the Equifunk Festival on Sunday August 18, 2013 in Equinunk, PA and Jam Cruise 12 on Saturday January 4th, 2014. They are playing on Jame Cruise 12 January 4-9.
