I'm cross-posting this to the -new list, as it might also be relevant  
to the hAudio work happening on -new.

Yes, Phish is a band, a type of organization.

I think it depends on the context.  If it's just a generic contact  
that you know nothing about, I'd say just use fn, as adding org is  
potentially incorrect information.  But if you know it's a music act,  
I think it makes sense to consider even an individual performer's  
name to be an organization name in that context.  I'd say there's a  
difference, for example, between Norah Jones the person, who would be  
<span class="fn">Norah Jones</span>, and Norah Jones the musical act,  
which would be <span class="fn org">Norah Jones</span>.
