"Mr. Fish: Teens' band is making a name for itself"

“One listen to their new CD and it is difficult to put a finger on one particular style. It’s like putting an iPod’s set list to random…There is a little bit of alternative, rock, hip hop, country, dance, experimental, punk and 1950s doo-wop...the band has an impressive following. Teenagers from around the Kansas City area flock to their shows, and sometimes the guys will even see strangers on the street wearing Mr. Fish fan shirts." - The Kansas City Star, November 17, 2007


"BSHS student’s band to release first CD"

Bio

"Mr. Fish makes me want to ride into space on the back of an Octopus for an intergalactic salad. Seriously. Zappa's rolling in his grave right now ... dancing to Mr. Fish." - Trent Haaga, independent film actor, screenwriter, and director.

Balloons fly from the hands of oddly-dressed dancers onstage; hundreds of sweaty, grinning teenagers dance their cares away; a man in in alligator costume shoots a laser gun into the sky, and a band of colorfully clothed kids pound out similarly colorful music onstage.

Nobody could be happier.

Welcome to a typical Mr. Fish concert. This is where kids can go to dance away their cares, where adults can go to feel like children again.

Mr. Fish is a band of enthusiastic musicians who believe music has no boundaries. The band paints with a huge musical palette, drawing from such diverse influences as LCD Soundsystem, Ween, Frank Zappa, The Flaming Lips, Captain Beefheart, They Might Be Giants, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Residents, and more. They blend an eclectic mix of doo-wop, dance, country, bubblegum pop, noise rock and experimental rock.

For their first two years, Mr. Fish played shows at local bars, schools, and civic events while building a loyal fan base. Two of the band's songs have been used in two different independent feature films produced by a local production company. In November of 2007, Mr. Fish released their debut album, "Soft Serve Assault." Recorded over the summer of 2007, the album proved to be very popular among the band's long-standing fans and attracted a whole crowd of new ones. The band has since played a number of well-attended shows and enjoyed media exposure through local newspapers and radio airplay.

If you're looking for a good, rocking, weird time, Mr. Fish is sure to deliver. So uncross your arms, slap some colorful makeup on, and meet us at the show!
