Wednesday – An Evening with Chad Fisher and his band
Chad Fisher has become one of the most sought after musicians in the south. He cut his teeth playing the trombone in the rich soul and jazz scene of Alabama and Mississippi, performing with local and regional bands, as well as soul legends The Temptations, Four Tops, Muscle Shoals’ The Swampers, and a host of others.
In 2015 he joined Birmingham, Alabama band St. Paul and The Broken Bones and appears on the band’s newest record Sea of Noise. The band is currently touring nationally and internationally in support of that record, performing recently on US national television (The Late Show, Conan O’Brien, Austin City Limits) as well The BBC (Later with Jools Holland). Past dates include appearances on many of the world’s biggest festivals and opening dates with The Rolling Stones.
Fisher’s own band of all-star musicians is becoming known as one the region’s best. His songwriting is full of vocal melodies and harmonies inspired by the country music he heard as a boy, but combines the textures, horns, and rhythms of soul, jazz, afro-beat, and rock to create a unique and exciting music.
