Legendary in the history of American ska and rock fusion by combining equal parts of deep funk, high-energy punk, and frantic ska, Fishbone was one of the most distinctive and eclectic alternative rock bands of the late '80s.

It's hard to put into words the sheer thunder of Fishbone live. The mix of bass, keyboards, 3 brass instruments, 5 vocalists, drums, guitar and a loud PA combine to create a molten mix of deep funk / frantic ska / high-energy punk that has solidified their undisputed reputation as one of the best live acts in music history.
