Fishbone is Tuesday’s Featured Artist!

This weeks featured artist is the funky ska band FISHBONE! So last night my friend T-Bone Willy and I, who is in a ska band himself called Starpool, went to the Alamo Theatre in downtown Austin, TX to catch the documentary Everyday Sunshine: The story of Fishbone. It’s was very interesting and entertaining. You don’t have to be “into” the band to enjoy this film. I didn’t know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. They have influenced so many great bands they are still going strong today such as No Doubt. I LOVE ska music and I have seen Fishbone a few times in the past but I myself am only familiar with a couple of songs. Probably the same one’s everyone else knows. They still have a strong following but never quite “made it” and partly due to the fact that they didn’t fit into a particular mainstream category. These guys have so much talent and are still struggling to make it happen. They have gone through many changes and hardships having 13 different band member line-ups with Angelo Moore and John Norwood Fisher being the only remaining original members. The band originated all the way back in junior high school with Norwood as the founding member. Fishbone definitely has the best stage presence of any band that I have ever seen. They still tour and are currently on tour at the moment so if you get a chance check them out! You won’t be disappointed!
