JOY ON FIRE / Bio
What if the world’s greatest punk band featured lead saxophone instead of vocals? What if America’s most interesting jazz trio featured a heavy metal rhythm section? What if you danced so hard, you literally jumped out of your own skin? JOY ON FIRE answers these questions and more! Originally formed in Baltimore, MD in 2009, JOY ON FIRE has since played up and down the East Coast, including gigs at Brooklyn’s Shapeshifter Lounge; SoWeBo Fest and Windup Space in Baltimore; The Purple Fiddle in West Virginia; and the The Pour House and Asheville Music Hall in North Carolina. Last May, the group hosted a month-long residency in NYC at SoHo’s The Cupping Room Cafe. Now based in New Jersey, JOY ON FIRE recently completed its second album of Led Zeppelin meets John Coltrane inspired “punk-jazz fuzz-rock,” entitled Fire with Fire.
