Feeling a bit camera shy


James Day & the Fish Fry are your “full service” jump blues band that loves all styles of the blues and shares this affection with their audience. The Fish Fry do a number of originals and covers of blues tunes from the 30’s 40’s& 50’s while putting a modern spin on them. These guys are more than talented players, they are performers who walk the crowd, play the piano with their feet, switch instruments, play behind their backs all in the name of good humor, in fact they always look like they are having fun.

This 5 piece band specializes in West Coast styled jump blues, Classic Chicago Blues and New Orleans R&B. The Fish Fry have performed in blues and folk festivals, clubs and swing and blues society shows in Europe and along the East Coast or the USA. They have share dteh stage and backed National Blues Artists from Pine Top Perkins to James Harman.

Their CD’s feature a take on every blues style, from that Classic Chess Style, Delta Blues, Swamp Pop, Cuban Rumbas and New Orleans street parades. You hear swing,rumbas,2nd lines, shuffles and early rock and roll beats. Their latest CD ,Firecracker, is played on satellite radio, roots music stations and overseas radio.

A brew of influences comes together in the form of backbeat drums, slapping upright bass, boogie woogie piano, fat toned guitar and honking harmonica. If you like to dance or just want to soak some old school blues then make it out for some turbo charged jump blues and we’ll all have a ball with one wild swinging house party.
