A high-energy, contagiously exuberant five piece New Orleans-style brass band, THE BITING FISH is Howard Fishman’s tribute to the Big Easy, his former home.  The band performs originals mixed with a classic brass band repertoire of spirituals, blues, gospel and funk. Featuring tuba, trombone, trumpet and drums and vocals, this project is featured on the recording "BETTER GET RIGHT."
