Blackfish - Funk Blues Rock Jazz Live Act in Derby

Blackfish Short Info

BIOGRAPHY
Blackfish are a jaw-dropping live band who love what they do, and they execute it with confidence and energy.

Band Members: Rick Rogers (Vocals, Guitar and Harp), Fil Anderson (Bass), Ant Perfect (Drums), Charlie Farrington (Trumpet and Guitar) and Hamish Rogers (Saxophone).

Having formed in August 2013, the band initially started performing covers; we soon realised how much we enjoyed the writing process and the freedom to improvise and recorded a demo in November 2013 which included a selection of original songs.

We have continued to refine our songs and are always crafting arrangements, based on essentially 3 key influences of Blues, Rock, and a healthy dose of The Funk. In fact, this sphere of influence continues to support the evolution of our sound, from the funk-infused, good-time grooves of ‘Running in Circles’, ‘3-Timing Lady’ and ‘Loosey Goosey’ to the blues anthems ‘I Found A Place’, ‘Can’t Get You (Out Of My Mind)’ and not forgetting the 3/4 swagger through a blues-rock drenched ‘House of Sand’ – you will find our tightly executed repertoire will make your heads nod and get you shaking your thing. In addition to this, to up the ante, Blackfish look to our brass section to add a new level of spice to the mix.

Blackfish have played a number of UK festivals and venues during 2014, and have established ourselves through our work ethic as a tight, professional outfit with highly-crafted, danceable songs, and will take every opportunity to get people on their feet!

Recording: Blackfish will be in the studio in October recording our debut album which will be available on ITunes and Amazon with a music video to follow.
