Catch Reverend Kingfish Live!

Recently arrived in Rochester, Reverend Kingfish performs a mix of early blues, jazz, and tin pan alley along with original tunes in the style of the beginning of American popular music. 

As an ordained minister, Reverend Kingfish expresses his faith through music. And that music is derived from the jazz and blues musicians of the early 20th century. The list of influences includes timeless greats such as Blind Blake, Fats Waller, the Boswell Sisters, Blind Boy Fuller, Scrapper Blackwell, Emmett Miller, Jimmie Rodgers, and too many more to mention.

There is something special about the music of this era; before multi-track recording, synthesizers, digital editing and everything that cheapens artistry. Recordings were a single take and musical styles were just evolving. It was a period of unparalleled creativity. Reverend Kingfish strives to keep this era fresh and relevant.
