About Big Eyed Phish
Big Eyed Phish is THE premier Dave Matthews Tribute band to see! Recreating the musical styling of the Dave Matthews band, from the early stages of the band in 93-94 to renditions of Funny the Way It Is and Shake Me Like a Monkey, which have been new staples on Dave Matthews band’s latest tours. The band is assembled, and led by Brandon DePaul, who has had 1000’s of hours on Stage with Rochester’s favorite ,Tripping Billies. Brandon is backed by some of the best muscians in Rochester. Mike Hoeschele – on Violin, Chris “the Doctor” Brodehecker- on bass, Brian Dudiak- on Keyboards, Dan Merkey- on Saxaphone, Collin Jones on lead guitar, and our very own Carter disguised as Karl Thomas on the drums. Together, these incredible and inspiring musicians, make up Big Eyed Phish. The band has spent the last couple of years traveling throughout the north east playing at everything from casinos in Atlantic City to ski resorts in Vermont and Maine on top of other major music venues and festivals in Boston, Pittsburgh, Erie, Syracuse, Buffalo, Saratoga Springs, Long Island, and more. There is nothing else out there that will come as close to a true live Dave Matthews Band show as seeing Big Eyed Phish in concert.
