Straight out of Stuart, Florida, comes the eclectic cast of characters collectively known as "Fresh Catch" . Specializing in a Heavy Reggae sound, the band has independently released four full length albums ( Foul Hooked 2008 , So Far 2010 , It's Better Here 2012, and Bale Money in 2015), along with a couple of music videos. They have shared the stage with nationally known touring acts like Matisyahu, The Expendables, The Dirty Heads, The Original Wailers, Pacific Dub, The Supervillains, Passafire, Echo Movement, Badfish, Big Smo, as well as reggae legends Third World and Pato Banton. Along with up and coming Florida bands like The Resolvers, Spred the Dub, Moska Project, and The Ellemeno Beat. Energetic live performances and catchy hooks make Fresh Catch a local favorite of the Treasure Coast.
The Members are:
Josh “Whailyman” Hoilman: Guitar and vocals. When he’s not busy creating one-of-a-kind Tiki sculptures (www.terratiki.com), Whailyman brings his rhythm chops, solid songwriting and melodic phrasing to Fresh Catch. Can you hear him calling?
Jose “El Brujo” Rivera: Bass and vocals. Nimble fingered El Brujo brings his Latin/Caribbean vibe while holding down the low-end and stepping to the mic. Watch him get nice.
Pete "Whistle-Whistle" Levine: Keyboards. Road tested and studio approved, Pete ivories the tickle-ies and can take an Icing like a man. His chops bring the Fresh Catch sound to a new level.
Danny "Tubes" Couto: Drums. Where did this guy come from? OH yeah.....world touring with latin hard core band Ill Nino. These days, we are glad he is nesting on the treasure coast and stepping in as the backbone of FC.
George "DJ SKRO" Skrobinski: Trumpet/Trombone: The latest addition to the FC sound. George operates dual duty as our brass section. When he aint gator chompin................... he's reggae-rocking.
