The charismatic Jerry Fish arrives at The Dock on Friday, January 11 with his travelling musical medicine show, his swaggering vocal, generous and infectious smile and that fantastic vaudeville moustache.
There’s a tendency for the word ‘unique’ to be bandied around a little too freely in music circles, but that’s the only way to describe Jerry Fish’s genre bending style.
A highly charismatic performer who refuses to countenance audiences having anything but a good time, Jerry Fish came to Ireland by way of Brixton, beginning as the main creative force and front-man of An Emotional Fish giving us the rock anthem ‘Celebrate’. Two decades on, his widely adored upbeat music includes the hit ‘True Friends’ and two platinum selling albums ‘Be Yourself’ and ‘The Beautiful Untrue’.
Watching Jerry Fish doing his lounge lizard turn onstage evokes the smoky ghosts of Willy DeVille, Professor Longhair and Dr. John (Described as “Dean Martin doing Leonard Cohen” or “Tom Waits in a good mood”).
You can enjoy Jerry’s superb live show at The Dock at 8.30pm on Friday, January 11.
Tickets are priced at €18 and are available from The Dock box office on (071) 9650828 or on line at www.thedock.ie.
