live band


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

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

Examples of live performances can be found on the Blackfish website and social media, follow the links below.

The band has continued to refine their songs and are always writing new ideas and 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 in their 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 34 swagger through a blues-rock drenched 'House of Sand' - you will find their 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 their 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 themselves through their work ethic as a tight, professional outfit with highly-crafted, danceable songs, and will take every opportunity to get people on their feet!
