The Peaceful Fools play an eclectic blend of acoustic music drawing on folk, rock, jazz, blues, and a shared obsession with a good song. We're currently playing a set composed of covers ranging from The Band to The Decemberists to Gnarls Barkley, and are adding in original material over time. John's highly expressive voice and Jay's wide ranging guitar expand the possibilities of the two instruments and two voices formula into an ear-grabbing sound that's sure to raise your spirits.
Band/artist history
John's sang lead doing blues and acoustic solo gigs recently after being active in church music since childhood. Jay grew up with one or more of his father's guitars always nearby, eventually playing in jazz, metal, prog, and finally multiple acoustic groups.
