February 27, 2016 – Fisheye & Godfrey and Guy
Jason Roberts – mandolin, guitar and backing vocals
Brian Mobley – vocals, bass and guitar
Andy Robinson – guitar, bass and backing vocals
Stanley Parker – drums and percussions
Fisheye is greater than the sum of its parts. Brian has a good voice. Jason is talented on both guitar and mandolin. Andy has an ear for harmony. And Stanley keeps a good beat. Stir in the work of three prolific songwriters in Brian, Andy and Jason. Add some practice, luck, and special sauce and there you have the basis of Fisheye.
Jason hails from Nottingham, UK where he was part of a pop-rock band called The Essentials. After moving to Atlanta, GA he hooked up with Brian to form a folk-rock group called The Diamond Geezers. Following several dormant years, Jason and Brian hooked up with Andy and Fisheye was born. Shortly before the band’s first birthday, Doug Ward completed the four-piece on drums, then four years and three CD’s later the drum sticks were handed over to Stanley.
Godfrey and Guy
Lori Guy and Tom Godfrey began rehearsing in 2011 simply for the love of singing and playing their favorite music: classics from the Great American Songbook of the ’30s, ’40s, and ’50s. They soon found themselves playing for parties, weddings, and swing dances. They can currently be heard every Friday at Noosh Persian Bistro.
Godfrey and Guy’s style of jazz is relaxed yet playful. Tom’s elegant guitar accompaniments underscore Lori’s personal vocal delivery. The songs are crowd pleasing, and melody is king.
