The Fenwicks


From http://www.thefenwicks.com - The Fenwicks, are a 10-piece "Afro-Celtic Yiddish Ska" band guaranteed to make you giggle and sweat. Imagine Bob Marley being molested by The Marx Brothers, and there you pretty much have it. Insanely enough, The Fenwicks were first formed when Lynyrd Skynyrd's drummer Artimus Pyle, discovered Steven Schub singing for a punk band called "Jew2" in Jerusalem Israel, and decided to fly Schub and his song-writing partner, guitarist Jim Corrieri, to Jacksonville Florida.

From http://www.thefenwicks.com - The Fenwicks, are a 10-piece "Afro-Celtic Yiddish Ska" band guaranteed to make you giggle and sweat. Imagine Bob Marley being molested by The Marx Brothers, and there you pretty much have it. Insanely enough, The Fenwicks were first formed when Lynyrd Skynyrd's drummer Artimus Pyle, discovered Steven Schub singing for a punk band called "Jew2" in Jerusalem Israel, and decided to fly Schub and his song-writing partner, guitarist Jim Corrieri, to Jacksonville Florida. Within 72 hours, (and with a mere 3 rehearsals), The Fenwicks played their now almost legendary first show: opening for Foreigner and Billy Squier, in front of 8,000 confused classic rock fans.

Listening to The Fenwicks’ cockamamie combination of ska, funk, folk and punk, and watching the band's nutty, nearly vaudevillian stage show, those Foreigner fans had no idea what to make of 'em. Over ten years, 3 CDs (on 3 different record labels), and umpteen national tours later, much of the world still doesn't. But tens of thousands of Fen-heads and 'Wick-heads world-wide like it that way! With a hard-earned (and hard-core) fan base, stretching literally from Baghdad (where soldiers have been cranking The Fenwicks in Saddam's former Presidential Palace) to Jerusalem, Sweden, Jersey and Hollywood, The Fenwicks have been able to carve out a happy, if subterranean, existence for themselves as underground underdogs, and one of the progenitors and instigators of 3rd Wave Ska.
