JERRY FISH – PIANO SHOW
Saturday, April 6th 2019
He’s one of Ireland’s most enigmatic and entertaining performers to the point where Ireland’s biggest music and arts festival, the Electric Picnic have for the past six years afforded him his very own stage. In fact in 2018 “The Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow” doubled in size and has become one of the main attractions at The Picnic. In 2018 Jerry also reformed his 90’s alt rock band An Emotional Fish to deliver a mischievous and magnificent set, causing a pitch invasion at Féile Classical and has just returned from a sell-out show in France.
An indie legend and ringmaster of exceptional renown, Jerry Fish has evolved into a showman extraordinaire, capturing the hearts and minds of audiences all over with his now legendary live shows, a unique live theatrical experience that dissolves all boundaries between performer and audience. For those who don’t know the back story; Jerry Fish blasted onto the Music Scene in the 1990’s touring the globe as front-man of alternative rock outfit An Emotional Fish, the band who gave us the indie rock anthem “Celebrate”
These days the name Jerry Fish is synonymous with Festivals, Carnival Sideshow, Circus and Theatre. Mr. Fish’s genre bending and idiosyncratic style of entertainment has made him a household name within the Irish Music industry. With two Platinum selling solo albums, an MTV award and IRMA Music Award, and a solid reputation as a supreme and spectacular showman. In 2017 Jerry took his stranger-than-fiction life story to theatre audiences for the first time at the Dublin Fringe festival; “The Songs & Tall Tales of Jerry Fish.” Jerry is currently touring an intimate piano show, performing his favourite songs, old, new, borrowed and blue, from a career spanning over two decades as well as excerpts from his sell-out fringe theatre show. A highly charismatic performer who refuses to countenance audiences having anything but a good time, accentuating the positive and bringing smiles to troubled faces with his swaggering vocal, generous and infectious smile and that fantastic vaudeville moustache.
