Fish Out of Water / Bio
Fish Out of Water (F.O.W.) is your premier rock, funk, reggae, and hip-hop specialist. Over the past twelve years, they have developed an exceptionally entertaining, all original live show by combining these musical styles into one formula known as RoPhunk RaeHop. This all original, high-energy class act brings a solid groove with a positive message, captivating the audience with their music.
“It’s as if Led Zeppelin, Bootsie Collins, Bob Marley, and Ice Berg Slim were wrapped up into one bad-ass persona.” Griffith Jackson - Sacramento News & Review
With their strong stage presence and funky beats, F.O.W. has been rapidly conquering the United States. Originally from San Luis Obispo, California, the group recently finished up their sixth national tour since 2009 and completed their first international tour to Australia last December. They played for sold out crowds from Byron Bay to the Sunshine Coast and look forward to returning this fall. Fish Out of Water has shared the stage with such acts as G. Love and Special Sauce, Fishbone, Passafire, and The Wailers, playing well over a thousand shows to date.
The band has released four albums (RoPhunk RaeHop, Harvest your Thoughts, The Dream) which are all dominated by their hypnotizing RoPhunk RaeHop sound. Venturing into new flavors, and at the heavy request of fans, F.O.W. released their first full length acoustic album Heart to Hand in the spring of 2011.
Cousins Kyle and Brandon Moon began the group in 2000. This multi talented duo consistently switches between guitar, bass and vocals, creating a diverse sound within the music. Their full set can include an hour of acoustic music depending on the venue needs. The rest of the performance includes costume changes and hours of crowd energizing, danceable beats.
Socially conscience, F.O.W. strives to use their music to its fullest potential, raising funds and donating their talent in support of such causes as hurricane relief, the Gulf oil disaster, breast cancer, and foster care. They hope their actions will one day inspire the rest of the world to give what you can with what you have.
Fish Out of Water commands the senses, moves the masses, and leaves you contemplating love, life, and everything in between.
