Brothers Phillip and Lindsay Hough started The Fishermen Band in the late 90's, and for the last 20 years the band has toured extensively and supported some big names in music. Though they wrote in completely different styles, the Hough brothers music blended well and was always centered around vocal harmonies. During the course of their career they sold out shows at LA's iconic stages, haunted SXSW venues in Austin Texas, performed at popular New York City dives, graced DCs most infamous clubs, appeared on radio and television, and played countless Colleges, Fundraisers, and Festivals in between. The band came full circle and planted a flag in DC in 2008, setting a foundation and building a new band with some of the best friends and fans on Earth. A decade later, The Fishermen Band is still performing in Washington DC. Many of the areas top musicians have revolved in and out of the line up in support. There were different iterations of the band depending on which city the band was based in at any given time. Over the years, TFB gained band members in cities like Boulder, CO, San Francisco and Los Angeles, California and Austin, Texas.
Current members; Drummer Chris Compton and Bassist Brian Waitzman, helped to evolve the bands sound into a rock/funk/reggae/folk fusion, known for dramatic dynamics and upbeat dance-worthy tunes. The band printed unique collectible CD's for every single show they played starting in 2004, bearing the title of the show, date, and occasionally the signatures of the band members. Until 2017, outside of their hit single "Someday" and first iTunes album release "Vision", you could only get Fishermen Band music at one of their shows. After 2017 the band was forced to go to digital publishing due to technology evolution. Collectibles can still be had at TFB shows, and they plan to offer a Vinyl collection.
