FISHBONE
ANGELO MOORE * WALT KIBBY * NORWOOD FISHER * FISH FISHER * ROCKY GEORGE * JAY ARMANT * PAUL HAMPTON

Celebrating 25+ groundbreaking years, FISHBONE has been trailblazing their way through the history of American Ska, Funk, Punk, Rock Fusion and (so-called) Black Rock since starting their professional career in Los Angeles' burgeoning, Alternative Rock music scene of the mid-1980s. Their sound has often been imitated, but never duplicated. They have toured worldwide with such bands as the Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Roots, Les Claypool/Primus, Fela Kuti, George Clinton, The Dead Kennedys and many more. Angelo Moore’s ability to combine thought-provoking, humorous social commentary with FISHBONE’s frenzied, up-tempo music and frantic, euphorically entertaining stage show has cultivated their undisputed reputation as one of the best live acts in music history.

Composing, creating, recording, releasing and performing original music together for over two decades, mass critical appeal appears to be returning to the band, fueled by their critically acclaimed full-length feature documentary; Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone. Narrated by Laurence Fishburne, the film earned LA Weekly’s Critic’s Choice Award at the Los Angeles Film Fest in 2010, has been called “effortlessly Entertaining” (Variety), “Brilliant and Groundbreaking” (Pop Matters), and hailed as “more than a documentary about rock ‘n’ roll. It’s a documentary about the American spirit and one that shows the life of one of its most influential creative forces.” (Encore Magazine). In addition, FISHBONE has been featured in a variety of national press recently including Rolling Stone, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, MTV Hive, Spin Magazine, E! Entertainment, Rotten Tomatoes and more.

The documentary features celebrity testimonials from an A-list cast of rock icons such as Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers), who calls the band “an important musical institution” and “the band that gave us the inspiration to be a band” by Gwen Stefani (No Doubt). The film also includes similar admiration from the likes of Perry Farrell (Jane’s Addition), Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains) Rob Trujillo (Metallica), Questlove (The Roots), Chuck D (Public Enemy), Tim Robbins (Grammy Winning Actor) and many more. The film not only highlights the bands substantial legacy in contemporary music of all forms, but also the struggles, adversity, and inner turmoil that has surrounded the bands career. Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone has already premiered in over 60+ theaters across the country, and many of the dates have sold out. The documentary aired on Public Television’s AfroPop Series as well as Encore early 2012, and still continues on air. The DVD is currently available for purchase nationwide at all major retailers, and on NetFlix.

To date, FISHBONE still continues to tour all over the world, turning heads at some of the most noteworthy festivals around the globe. They've recently been seen "Skankin To The Beat" at Coachella Music Festival, Riot Festival, Lockn' Festival, California Roots, Afropunk Festival, Gathering of the Vibes, Outside Lands Music Festival, Ottawa Blues Fest, Montreal Jazz Festival, Bumbershoot in Seattle, Riot Fest in Chicago, IL, Voodoo Festival in New Orleans, LA, Fuji Rock Festival in Tokyo, Japan, Wakarusa in Ozark, AK, Sunset Junction in Los Angeles, CA and many more. The band also appeared on late night television performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Angelo Moore sat in with The Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in 2012. They have also toured with numerous bands recently such as Jane’s Addiction, Primus, and Slightly Stoopid.

Fishbone's latest newest musical adventure Intrinsically Intertwined (Controlled Substance Sound Labs/Zojak Worldwide) was released in 2014. Shortly after their EP dropped, the band premiered Part 1 of their 5-Part “mockumentary” webisode series called "The Fishbone Reality: Intrinsically Intertwined" on Vevo.com.
