AVON —Agave presents its weekly Tacos N Tunes night starting Tuesday with $1.50 crispy tacos, drink specials and live music. The first performance will feature Fish Out of Water, a nomadic nationally touring jam band that makes regular visits throughout the year at Agave.

For the past 15 years, Fish Out of Water has been sharing its love and passion for music with people of all ages and ethnicities around the world. Based out of San Diego, California, this bathrobe-toting and funk-thumping international act has developed an all original set that typically starts with mellow acoustic material followed by high-energy rock, funk, reggae and hip-hop, giving a sound that ranges from Jack Johnson and Sublime to Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Founding members and cousins Brandon and Kyle Moon started the group in 2000, consistently sharing duties on bass and electric guitar, as well as vocals. On drums is Michael Turco, an established touring/session percussionist hailing from Los Angeles. Together, they have completed multiple tours across the United States. Highlights include playing on top of a water tower during Fantasy Fest in Key West, where front man Kyle Moon jumped off the roof during his guitar solo and hosting shows for sold-out crowds on the Sunshine and Gold Coasts of Australia.

‘Cantangelo Skies’

The band has released four albums over the span of its career, including “RoPhunk RaeHop,” “Harvest Your Thoughts,” “The Dream” and its first full-length acoustic album, “Heart to Hand,” mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer Wyn Davis, of Total Access Studios. Between tours, the Fish have been working on their latest CD “Cantangelo Skies.”

Socially conscience, Fish Out of Water strives to use its music to its fullest potential, raising funds and donating the band’s talent in support of such causes as hurricane relief, the Gulf oil disaster, breast cancer and foster care. They hope their actions will one day inspire the rest of the world to give what you can with what you have. Learn more at http://www.fishoutofwaterhq.com.
