The Hard Swimmin' Fish
The Hard Swimmin' Fish
Hard Swimmin' Fish is a blues quartet that has been making music together for over fifteen years. The band plays a range of styles covering the country blues of Mississippi and The Piedmont, the urban blues of Chicago, and funk infused varieties with roots in New Orleans' second line. This versatility allows Hard Swimmin' Fish to offer either acoustic or electric performances and play any venue.

The juxtaposition of old and new is also evident in both the band members and their play-list. The playing and singing of guitarist/vocalist Demian Lewis is deeply rooted in traditional styles and is powered by the sophisticated rhythms of drummer Jason Walker, and the virtuosity of bassist Randy Ball. Together they churn out a vibrant combination of originals, rearranged traditional material, and recognizable standards.
