Kettle of Fish plays “festiblues”, a term for the kind of festival music that features blues, soul and funk with the energy of rock n’ roll. They make old songs new again, and their originals sound like classics. Kettle of Fish is one of the hottest live acts in Southwest Florida, headlining to thousands, and opening for such acts as Eddie Money, Marshall Tucker, Elvin Bishop, Dickey Betts (three times, who called the band “intimidating”) and many more playing mostly originals and deep track covers.
Kettle has been led by singer and principal songwriter Dana Lawrence since its inception in 2001. Current members include Greg Poulos on guitar (formerly with the Freddie King Band, the Venturas, Rock Bottom), Chris Guertin on bass (Big Kahuna Band), Rick Andre on drums (has toured with the Platters, Ben E King, Chuck Berry) and Robin Swenson on keys (Four Seasons, Aretha Franklin). Other honorary members include Thorson Moore, the rising star Kevin Miller on guitar, Garrett Dawson on drums/percussion, Andy Wallace or Matthew Frost on keys (when available), Jimmie Fadden (nitty Gritty Dirt Band) on drums and harmonicas and other friends of the road.
