The Feathered Fish” performed at the sports bar Home Team Grill Friday night at open mic night and invited other performers to the stage with them as well for their last performance before they go to Tampa to record an album.

After six years of playing and trying to record an album, “The Feathered Fish” finally raised enough money with the help of Kickstarter to go to Florida for two weeks.  The band managed to raise almost $5000.

The new wave rock reggae sensation began six years ago when Jeremy Hankins or “Hanky” and Johnny Ray Wolfe graduated high school.  After playing music all throughout their high school career, they decided they wanted to create their band.

The name, “The Feathered Fish” originated a time they witnessed a smaller bird carrying a larger fish as its prey.  It looked as though it were going to drop it, but through its perseverance, it succeeded and that is what they say they are about.

Senior William O’Neill knows the band personally.  His brother was in their graduating class.

“Through their gigs and playing, I’ve played with them and I’ve known them over the years,” O’Neill said.  “They are great, down to earth, peaceful guys.”

O’Neill and other students from Stafford High went to Home Team Grill to see them perform.

“It was a great show that lasted a few hours,” O’Neill said. “They played some of their crowd favorites, like Stoney Storm, and played some covers like Scar Tissue and Simple Man.”

O’Neill has been following the band for as long as they have been playing.

“I’m one of their most loyal fans,” O’Neill said. “They’re a band to look for because they’re gonna make it.”
