We Play Music That Makes You Move...
We're (how cliché is this) a mix of styles... Rock, Reggae, Blues and Soul, throw in some grunge, a bit of Jangle Rock/Americana here and there... and you’ve got what we do. Influences and bands we like in no order whatsoever: Gin Blossoms, Incubus, Led Zeppelin, Beatles, Bad Finger, Stone Temple Pilots, Foo Fighters, Sublime, G. Love & Special Sauce, Tom Petty, Hendrix, Steve Earle, Allman Brothers, The Police, The Band, Big Wreck, Otis Redding, Bill Withers, Van Morrison, Pepper, The Band, Fiction Plane, Butch Walker, The Killers, Black Keys, Soul Asylum, Modest Mouse, Pearl Jam, Built to Spill, Bob Mould... hell, there's a lot... and we don’t really sound like any of them!
Someone once described Hookfish as “a jam band that learned how to play 3 1/2 minute hook-filled tunes you sing in your head for 3 days.” …That seems about right.
Bottom line... We're a band that is a little bit polish, a little bit ragged edge, a lot of professional attitude and experience, all topped off with a desire to have fun and play music that makes guys bob their heads, girls shake their butts, and everybody buy drinks at the bar!
