Sharin' in the Groove: Celebrating the Music of Phish is an all-star charity Phish tribute album featuring 23 acts covering 20 Phish songs, all on a volunteer basis, to fund music education for children, under the auspices of the Mockingbird Foundation. Over 25,000 copies were sold in the first two weeks, making it one of the fastest selling tribute albums ever.

Executive Producer Ellis Godard selected artists to be as diverse as possible in style, genre, and instrumentation, and arranged the tracks to resemble a Phish concert, with the more exploratory material in the second "set" (disc two). Also, in a twist on typical tribute albums, each artist represents an influence on Phish[citation needed] (such as a style they've mimicked, or an artist they've covered), whereas most tributes feature artists influenced by the band they are covering.

In addition to the album, a series of bonus tracks was released exclusively online for a number of months in late 2000.
