Fishing for Saturday


Rocking out of Springfield, Missouri, Fishing for Saturday is not your ordinary rock cover band. Known for their smooth vocals, and blistering guitar work, Fishing for Saturday has developed a devoted fan base, and is filling every venue they play. Never mind the fact that the band members are between 16 and 17 years old! Fishing for Saturday formed in Springfield in early 2013. It did not take long before they were asked to play community events, which has led to consistent shows all over the Ozarks, in the biggest local venues with the biggest local bands, as well as nationally touring acts.


The band consists of lead vocalist Mady McCrea, lead guitarists, and bassists Jackson Martin and Preston Martin, guitarist Alex Herrell, anddrummer Josh Henry. The band’s willingness to explore all types of musical style and eras have made them a fan favorite, and their dedication has made them a power house on stage. From Jimi Hendrix to Pink Floyd to Natalie Merchant, you will be hard pressed to find a band that covers a wider range of rock music, and even original tunes.


Fishing for Saturday has had the opportunity and pleasure to share the stage with some fantastic bands during the last year.
