Total known Hoods played:

297*

* Phish.net has the count at 299 but they count 6-22-00 as two Hoods and 7-26-97 as two Hoods because it was played and then segued into another song and then was reprised or finished.  I believe it is more accurate to consider those instances as one time played each.

Phish has played 19 songs more than Harry Hood.
