Exploding out of the Mid-Atlantic music scene, Fools and Horses are redefining Rock & Roll! Their unique sound combines the best of classic rock with new British pop and has won them legions of fans. Fools and Horses were selected by CBS Radio (MIX 106.5) to open for Bon Jovi and performed at the MCI Center in Washington, D.C. in front of 15,000 cheering fans. Portions of their performance aired on FOX TV and CNN. Their new CD, POP FILTER has been greatly received by radio and has been put into regular rotation on many popular stations, including WIYY 98 ROCK. Their original music has been featured on A&E and will be heard this year on MTV as well. In addition, they were recently voted "Best Modern Rock Band" as well as "Best Album" and "Most Likely to Succeed" in Music Monthly Magazine's annual Reader's Poll.
XM Radio says, "These four guys have formulated an outline for writing great songs...give Fools & Horses your undivided attention!"

FOOLS & HORSES INDUSTRY BUZZ ...the story continues...
"FOOLS AND HORSES ARE BY FAR ONE OF THE BEST MID-ATLANTIC BANDS AROUND. Not only is their music tight, but they play with such passion and intensity. If you don't catch them live or get their CD, you will be missing out on a group that is destined to become a number one chart busting band!"
-Dave Burgess, Promotions Director - MIX 106.5- Baltimore, MD.
"Independent rock is at a kind of crossroads lately. There are bands that continue to push the envelope and find new ways to create sound and arrange songs, and then there are bands that are content to sit and idly reproduce structures and sounds that have been done over and over, run into the ground. Fools & Horses fit into the former category. The band relies on creative songwriting and even more creative sonic usage of instruments to create some of the most memorable indie rock of the year so far...The classic elements of rock are all to be found on Pop Filter, but there are plenty of components that transcend modernism and lean towards what might just be the next big thing in indie rock and all with honest credibility and aural blissfulness. A great combination."
