Fish Out of Water is your premier rock, funk, reggae, and hip-hop specialists. Over the past 5 years, they have developed one of the most entertaining live shows by combining these 4 styles into one formula known as "RoPhunk RaeHop". Along with bathrobes and mardi gras beads, this all original, high-energy class act brings a solid groove with a positive message, captivating the audience with their music.

F.O.W. is not only known for their funky beats, but also their plethora of all original acoustic material. Front-men, co-founders, and cousins Kyle and Brandon Moon will rotate freely between lead and rhythm guitar, bass, percussion, and vocals; bringing a diverse and fresh sound throughout their acoustic and electric sets.

Based out of the Central Coast of California, the fish have been consistently touring from San Diego to Seattle, as well as the Hawaiian Islands for the past few years. They have shared the stage with such acts as Fishbone, The Wailers, Long Beach Dub All-Stars, and have played over 500 shows, including such venues as: Caesar's Palace -South Lake Tahoe, CA; Hard Rock Cafe -Honolulu,HI; and The Nectar Lounge -Seattle, WA.

The life on the road is definitely an unpredictable one as we've had many unexpected occurrences along the way. If your ever in Oregon, don't eat the Mexican food. We all ate at a restaurant there once, on our way up to Seattle, and the entire band got horribly sick throughout the next week and a half. First my cousin, who threw up in my jacket while staying at a friend's house; then our drummer Ian, who threw up in the middle of our first show in Seattle (we actually have video of him in action, and amazingly enough, doesn't skip a beat); and finally me, who threw up an hour before our second show in Seattle. Luckily, the one and only time I have ever been to sick to play, my younger brother, who is an accomplished singer/songwriter himself, happened to be there. So, while I was laying on my deathbed in the hotel room, he was able to fill in for me at the last minute, which he pulled off quite nicely for not really knowing much of the material. As hard as the road can be sometimes, though, it's worth all the arguments and economic hardships when your able to spread your music across the globe, putting smiles on people's faces and bringing them inspiration to what we call life.
