Jerry Fish


Platinum-selling artist Jerry Fish has been a household name in the Irish music industry since the 1990’s. Since his initial success with An Emotional Fish, there has been a substantial evolution in terms of his musical style and it’s a struggle to tie him down to one genre. His music blends genres from New Orleans Funk to Punk Latino to Broken Mambo Jive. It would appear his mainstream breakthrough came with his hit “True Friends” which was then followed by two platinum albums “Be Yourself” and “The Beautiful Untrue”. Known for his theatrical live performances which blur all boundaries between the performer and the audience, the natural next step was to create “The Jerry Fish Electric Sideshow”.

Launched for the first time at Electric Picnic in 2013, the stage continues to grow bigger and better than ever, each year bringing a variety of wonderful acts along with the ultimate circus atmosphere to the festival. “Roll up! Roll up! Jerry Fish’s majestic, magnificent and at moments macabre ‘Electric Sideshow’ delivers all manner of musical delights and wonders. The wild show features everything from circus performers to one of the most lively and engaging artists in Ireland right now. A ringmaster of exceptional renown, Fish has evolved into a showman extraordinaire, not to be missed.” With rave reviews such as this one from Hot Press Magazine the show just had to be brought on the road.

Working alongside some of the country’s best performers and artists Jerry brought the spectacular carnival party around Ireland to critical acclaim. Since then the performer has continued to delight audiences with his own unique style of whimsy, most recently his theatre show “Misery Hill, The Songs & Tall Tales of Jerry Fish” as part of The Dublin Fringe Festival.
