Tom "Ketchfish" Inglis and Leo Chalmers got together in 2005 after finding so much overlap in their musical tastes it was almost scary. After some searching, they hooked up with Billy White and Tim Mariano which made it even scarier! Together, they just enjoy the heck out of playing blues and ancient rock & roll! They changed the name from The Ketchfish Brothers to The KetchFish Band in 2009.
Tom plays electric guitar, acoustic slide guitar, lap steel and electric bass, acoustic guitar and performs lead and backing vocals.
Leo plays electric bass and blues harp.
Billy plays electric guitar, acoustic guitar, electric bass and performs vocals.
Kevin plays drums.
All have long histories, decades each in fact, playing live shows.

Lee Chalmers - Vocals, additional percussion
Elissa White - Vocals, additional percussion
