Legendary Martha's Vineyard Blues Band

Makes Their Fallout Shelter Debut!

The Fallout Shelter - 61 Endicott Street, Norwood, MA, 02062

This is as "low down greasy" as the blues gets. This bend "gets" the blues from all of it's historic perspectives from Memphis Soul to Delta Blues to Chicago Johnny Hoy has a firm grasp on all of it. Formed in 1991, the band has evolved through many incarnations, three Tone Cool and two self-produced CDs, trips around the world as far as South Africa and mostly the joys of playing a lot of music on Martha's Vineyard where most of them live. The band started out as a four-piece with no piano, became a five-piece for several years, and then returned to a four-piece configuration, this time with no bass, and it's been that way for over 10 years.

Johnny Hoy
juggles a full life where he takes advantage of his many skills including stone masonry, fishing, antique dealing, farming. Somehow he manages to do all the gigs as well. He came to the Island in 1978, after soaking up Muddy Waters’ and Tom Waits’ shows as a teenager.


Jeremy Berlin,
the piano player, has been with the band for most of its life — since the summer of '93. He's played duets with President Clinton, and Carly Simon — he's not afraid of anything, and he plays it all. Jeremy's connection with the Island started before he was born and he's been there on and off ever since.


Delanie Pickering,
guitarist, showed up on the Island in 2017 from New Hampshire. She didn’t tell anyone she played music, and quietly checked out the scene until she was ready. Then it was all over: everyone wanted her, and The Bluefish have her! Audiences love her, and her energy has given a new life to the band. And she sings!

Kevin Medeiros, Rounding out the band is drummer Kevin Medeiros from New Bedford. He listened to the Bluefish for years before it was his turn, and his solid beat gets better and better. He grew up in New Bedford and he and Delanie give the band new blood!
