               Tom Fish

Tom Fish picked up a guitar at 10 years old and never put it down!

Since that time, Tom has performed with some of the Jersey Shore's premier acts, such as Brian Kirk & The Jirks, Buddha and the Fish, and The Average Thom White Band.

Tom also has a recurring gig with Slick Aguilar, longtime lead guitar player for Jefferson Starship.

Currently Tom is the lead guitarist for Sundries, a local band that has played many of the best clubs in and around NJ, including several shows at the legendary Stone Pony. 

He is also one half of the acclaimed acoustic duo, Tom and Tom and the lead guitarist and co-lead vocalist of the full band incarnation of the duo- The Barflyz. Performing in both of these projects with his long-time musical partner, Tom Kanach, the focus is always on quality vocals and music.

After more than twenty years of performing live music, there is still no bigger thrill for Tom than playing in front of a live audience.
