Entertainer, guitar, harmonica, singer, songwriter: these are the occupations Al Fuller lists on his business card. What that list does not convey is the dynamic quality of his entertainment. Phil Colpas heaped praise on Al’s style in the Pelican Press saying: ”At nearly six and a half feet, Al Fuller attracts attention for being tall, but it’s his music that stands head and shoulders above the rest.”
His fine, bluesy baritone reels out tune after tune with precision, while accompanying himself with a Gibson six-string, a Fender Stratocaster, a National Resophonic Guitar, assorted harmonicas and some fancy footwork.

Things really get cookin’ as Bradenton’s premier rockabilly blues hounds Doug Deming and the Jewel Tones proceed to get the crowd jumping, jiving and wailing. Backed by Andrew Gohman on upright bass and Devin Neel on drums, Deming summons the spirit of blues legends like T-Bone Walker and Charlie Christian. The Detroit native honed his style over years backing up greats such as Louisiana swamp bluesman Lazy Lester, Chicago’s Johnny “Yard Dog” Jones and A.C. Reed, and Detroit’s own Queen of the Blues, Alberta Adams. The band’s latest album “What’s it Gonna Take” spent two months on Living Blue Radio’s Top Ten Chart after being released through the Vizztone Label in October 2012.

Kettle of Fish has always been a co-op of the best musicians in the area, the constant change of lineup only leads up to more fun! They have been performing in clubs, festivals and events all over the United States for years. They have shared the stage with members of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Roger Waters’ Band, Twinkle, Devon Allman, Pat Travers, Damon Fowler, Dickey Betts, Graham Forbes of the Incredible String Band, the Amazing Bolts, Shea Seger and opened for Eddie Money, Molly Hatchet, Elvin Bishop, Tommy Castro, Trombone Shorty, the Marshall Tucker Band, Jimmy Buffett (at the famous Blue Heaven in Key West), among others.
Their music is more of a rootsy “blues rock with soul,” working to cross together soulful blues with the energy of rock n roll. If you like the sound of the Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, Robert Cray, BB King, the Neville Brothers, Buddy Guy, Johnny Cash, Dave Matthews Band, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, the Allman Brothers, the Grateful Dead, Eric Clapton…you will love Kettle of Fish.
