FRY are Newcastle and the Hunter Regions best exponents of jump-jive jazz, swing and rhythm & blues.
FRY shows are famous for their energy and excitement as well as great musicianship from what Chad Watson of the Newcastle
Morning Herald called the Newcastle Jazz supergroup.
Winners in the Jazz
category of the ABC Newcastle Music Award for an unprecedented two years running in 2003 and 2004, FISH FRY
have released two sold out albums and are currently working on material for their third. They were also on NBN Telethon
performing one of their new songs and performed at the 2004 Jazz in the Vines where they finished the show with a bang.
Now in their twelth
year FISH FRY have introduced many people to the music of vital early exponents of R&B like Louis Jordan and Big
Joe Turner while also playing the classics of Ray Charles, Duke Ellington, Georgie Fame, James Brown and Louis Prima.
FRY have been regular performers at music festivals throughout the state and have supported such greats as Shirley Bassey,
Michael Crawford, James Morrison (see below) and Don Burrows.
