Hot Rock, R&B and Blues! R heading into studio to start doin' our thang!

Lead singer Mary Ellen Hayden just finished tracking vocals for Greg Lake's touring show so you'll hear her there if you go-all over the world!

His songwriting took 3rd place in a Billboard National songwriting competition.

Bassist Dave Quick has played with vixen, M-80, The Wait, Johnny Smoke, The Park Avenue Band, D-Drive and The Kid Kurry Band and brings top notch musicianship to The Fools.

We are headed into a busy and fantastic show filled summer of 2012. Look for updates to our schedule!

The Fools opened for Little Feat at the 2011 Lilac Festival, Commander Cody at the 2010 Rochester Rib Fest and have performed with some phenomenal musicians including the Campbell Brothers at the 2010 Fairport Music Festival along with many others!
