Where did we come from?:
Spun from numerous projects, Fish Eyed Blues officially formed in 2016 after founding members 
Paul and Jeff decided  “Let’s play what’s in our soul, lets play some great blues with a 
rock edge!”. Along with long time bassist Rich Solomon, Fish Eyed Blues was born.  With the addition of Doug Hutchins and power house drummer Kevin Crouse, Fish Eyed Blues spins a mix of traditional and contemporary blues along with blues rock, giving it their own interpretation, merging the spirit and the soul of the blues with the energy of rock and roll, while respecting the artists that created it. Add in improv jams mixed with rock and funk, Fish Eyed Blues takes the blues and gives it its own makeover. FEB's original material has the blues tradition with a contemporary vibe and feel. Covers by Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton, Freddie King, BB King, along with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, ZZ Top, Allman Bros., Hendrix, Joe Walsh, to name a few. Fish Eyed Blues plays the blues with originality and a rock and roll energy. "Fish Eyed Blues: the rockin side of blues"
Fish Eyed Blues welcomes our new drummer Kevin Crouse.  The band sounds better then ever....

Our Influences:
Where do we start....weaned on 70's rock....not really knowing that it was "blues" with Marshalls...
Led Zep, Aerosmith, Edgar Winter, Jeff Beck, Hendrix & Cream....(ok 60's)..
Progressive rock...Kansas (wow..rock guitar tone with classical movements), Floyd (oh those Gilmour solos!!)....
Enter Stevie Ray Vaughan...hmmm..this guy sounds different....sorta like Hendrix but not really....this is blues...
lets see what this guy is about....Real Blues....3 Kings..Albert King, BB King, Freddie King...Muddy Waters.....
this changes everything....now come the 80's...err..big hair and tight pants...not for us...Thank god for Guns N Roses and Black Crowes.....back to bluesy rock! ... 90's grunge, pop punk and alternative...some cool stuff..different attitude but guitar driven songs with great hooks....Then...Kenny Wayne, Johnny Lang, Chris Duartee...yes..
