Fleece is an Alternative/Rock band performing in the tri-state area. Formed two short years ago they have played before a crowd of more than 17k. Their melodic vocal driven songs have fans of all ages singing along before the second chorus. The shows are energetic and passionate with a message.


"You' re a superstar, you just don't know it yet.." Those were the words legendary R&B producer Troy Taylor used to describe John Fitzpatrick. Big John began his professional career the day Troy and his wife happened to be in the audience at a church when John moved listeners to tears with his song at the piano. He immediately invited John into his home to record.
John continued to write and perform with bass player and friend James Alvin Harrison. They soon realized they needed a band to do justice to the burgeoning set list.
Starting as the John Fitzpatrick band and evolving into FLEECE they have changed personnel to enhance their sound. They have played in intimate settings like Mexicali Blues and Kenny's Castaways as well as Creation and Soulfest before 160,000 and 25,000 fans.
When source magazine founder David Hays came in for a cup of coffe while FLEECEwas performing he became transfixed. "I came in for 10 minutes and you kept me here glued to my seat for 2 1/2 hours.".
DJ David A. Dien from Star 99.1 called the "the next big thing".
Catch them now so you can say 'I saw them back in the day'.
