Fishbone
Celebrating 25+ groundbreaking years, FISHBONE has been trailblazing their way through the history of American Ska, Funk, Punk, Rock Fusion and (so-called) Black Rock since starting their professional career in Los Angeles' burgeoning, Alternative Rock music scene of the mid-1980s. Their sound has often been imitated, but never duplicated. They have toured worldwide with such bands as the Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Roots, Les Claypool/Primus, Fela Kuti, George Clinton, The Dead Kennedys and many more. Angelo Moore’s ability to combine thought-provoking, humorous social commentary with FISHBONE’s frenzied, up-tempo music and frantic, euphorically entertaining stage show has cultivated their undisputed reputation as one of the best live acts in music history.

Composing, creating, recording, releasing and performing original music together for over two decades, mass critical appeal appears to be returning to the band, fueled by their critically acclaimed full-length feature documentary; Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone. Narrated by Laurence Fishburne, the film earned LA Weekly’s Critic’s Choice Award at the Los Angeles Film Fest in 2010, has been called “effortlessly Entertaining” (Variety), “Brilliant and Groundbreaking” (Pop Matters), and hailed as “more than a documentary about rock ‘n’ roll. It’s a documentary about the American spirit and one that shows the life of one of its most influential creative forces.” (Encore Magazine)

The documentary features celebrity testimonials from an A-list cast of rock icons such as Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers), who calls the band “an important musical institution” and “the band that gave us the inspiration to be a band” by Gwen Stefani (No Doubt). The film also includes similar admiration from the likes of Perry Farrell (Jane’s Addition), Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains) Rob Trujillo (Metallica), Questlove (The Roots), Chuck D (Public Enemy), Tim Robbins (Grammy Winning Actor) and many more. The film not only highlights the bands substantial legacy in contemporary music of all forms, but also the struggles, adversity, and inner turmoil that has surrounded the bands career. Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone has already premiered in over 60+ theaters across the country, and many of the dates have sold out. The documentary aired on Public Television’s AfroPop Series as well as Encore early 2012, and still continues on air. The DVD is currently available for purchase nationwide at all major retailers, and on NetFlix.

To date, FISHBONE still continues to tour all over the world, turning heads at some of the most noteworthy festivals around the globe such as Coachella Music Festival (2014), Gathering of the Vibes (2013), Outside Lands Music Festival (2013), Ottawa Blues Fest (2012), Montreal Jazz Festival (2012), Bumbershoot in Seattle, WA (2012), Riot Fest in Chicago, IL (2012), Voodoo Festival in New Orleans, LA (2014, 2011), Fuji Rock Festival in Tokyo, Japan (2010), Wakarusa in Ozark, AK (2010), Sunset Junction in Los Angeles, CA (2010) and more. In 2012, the band had the opportunity to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Angelo Moore sat in with The Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. They also performed three outstanding shows with Jane’s Addiction in Las Vegas (2014) and Primus in Las Vegas, Santa Cruz and San Francisco (2013). FISHBONE has been featured in a variety of national press recently including Rolling Stone, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, MTV Hive, Spin Magazine, E! Entertainment, Rotten Tomatoes and more.

FISHBONE just announced their newest musical adventure Intrinsically Intertwined (Controlled Substance Sound Labs/Zojak Worldwide) released digitally on Tuesday, April 22, 2014 via iTunes and other digital outlets, with plans to launch a 5-part “mockumentary” webisode series this summer. In addition, recent legal complications from a stage diving lawsuit have prompted the band to start a crowd funding campaign to help raise funds for their legal defense.

The current member line up includes original members Angelo Moore, Walt Kibby, Fish Fisher, John Bigham, Rocky George, Jay Armant, and Norwood Fisher- Performing Chim Chim's in its entirety + select favorite songs

2014 Rock ‘n’ Roll Rumble participant and Boston Music Award nominee for ‘Punk Artist of the Year’, Rebuilder rips open the preconceived stitches of punk rock to deliver their expansive, mature, and complex sophomore album, “Rock & Roll In America”. Their debut full-length on Panic State Records, “RNRIA” reinvents the self-proclaimed gnarly rock band’s sonic footprint, transcending the traditional three chord punk progression and showcasing the evolution of the band’s collaborative writing styles. Passionate, stirring and with a ‘never say die’ attitude in the same vein as Frank Turner or Against Me, Rebuilder’s live shows are packed with the resilient emotion of DIY music inspired by the honest truth, the instinctual reaction and the second wind that holds you back from the brink of exhaustion. Rebuilder hit the scene in 2013 and has opened for acts such as The Dropkick Murphys, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Dead Milkmen and Stiff Little Fingers. ‘Rock & Roll In America’ was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jay Maas of Defeater at Getaway Studios in Haverhill.
