"The Fenwicks are a twisted yet eloquent fusion... impossible to forget, and with a story, the producer's of VH-1's "Behind The Music" would slaver over."-The Florida Times-Union
So, just what are THE FENWICKS? 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 songwriting 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 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.
