JimBo Trout and the Fishpeople play a good-time musical gumbo of bluegrass, old-time, ragtime, blues, western-swing, rockabilly, honky-tonk, jug band, jazz, swing, Cowboy, rock+roll, New Orleans, and more. But they are not a band that would let tradition stand in the way of a good time. They are a fun, high-energy, danceable group if ever there was one!
The San Francisco-based JimBo Trout and the Fishpeople have been crafting their good-time musical gumbo since 1992. With over 400 songs on their list, the band will surprise you with their range. They have performed at most of the Bay Area's top venues and festivals, and they have opened shows for David Bromberg, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, The Squirrel Nut Zippers, Dr. John, Johnny Winter, Cake, Calexico, Doo Rag, and Hot Club of Cowtown to name a few.
