About This Show

Howard Fishman made his debut at The Algonquin Oak Room in 1999 and has since headlined in major venues both in the U.S. and abroad, including The Steppenwolf Theater, The Blue Note, MassMOCA, The Pasadena Playhouse, Joe’s Pub, NJPAC, and Le Petit Journal. Fishman has garnered a cult following for both his live performances (alternately explosive and intimate, sometimes in the space of a single song) and for his uncategorizable original music described as ‘modern primitive’ by New York Magazine. Ever-evolving and increasingly difficult to pin down, Fishman has moved through early jazz, folk, blues, avant-garde, classical, rock, pop, funk, ska and (most recently) country, gospel and New Orleans brass band music, while releasing five critically acclaimed CDs. Fronting a highly improvisational band that mixes horns, strings and his own guitar and vocals, Fishman’s music and live shows are darkly humorous, unpredictable, caustic, romantic and intense, inspiring a legion of fans at the grassroots level who faithfully follow his shows. The New York Times says that Fishman’s music ‘transcends time and idiom.’
