Go Fish

Go Fish

Pop music has long known the value of sampling and building upon a well-loved Motown hit. Toys R Us fights to keep shelves stocked with the latest twists on century-old board games, from Star Wars Battleship to Toy Story Memory. And with new versions of such favorite films as Karate Kid and Footloose, it seems even Hollywood has gotten the message: You can't beat a classic. Nostalgic moms and dads are lining up with kids in tow, ready to share the growing line-up of souped-up childhood favorites.

So maybe, just maybe, when acclaimed family entertainers Go Fish hatched a seemingly hair-brained scheme to bring hymns to kids, the beloved group-who, among numerous accolades, has appeared on The Today Show and performed before a capacity crowd at St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center-just might have known what they were doing. They're Kickin' It Old School.

In the age of PowerPoint and video screens, many of today's kids have never even seen a hymnal. But as Go Fish members Jamie Statema, Jason Folkmann and Andy Selness know, the Truth is always the Truth, and those classic songs that have remained in our heads and hearts since childhood still have a place for families today-even if they're played more often on iPods than church organs.

Go Fish : Infectious

Review: The three talented men of Tennessee-based Go Fish, whose finely-crafted original songs have graced 6 previous CDs and 1 DVD, which are some of our favorite, and best-selling Contemporary Christian recordings. When two of the men became fathers, they turned their songwriting and live-performance talents towards children, and they have created a remarkably popular body of work, selling over 500,000 CDs and DVDs. For a cappella purists, that a few CDs ago Go Fish went (rock-band) accompanied, and they have continued that trend. That said, we're once again amazed by the energy, joy and creativity of "Infectious," which is defined on the back of the liner notes as "something that is easily and readily communicated," and that "few things are more infectious than a godly lifestyle." 10 songs, plus bonus track ("Silent Night," from "More Than a Story." Favorites are "I See You," "Until The Stars Fall," "That's What Amazes Me," the title tune, "Watch Me Go," "Clover Leaf Park," "You're My Little Girl," "You Remind Me" and "Lord I Give You Me." There's a lot of love and feeling in "Infectious," the product of the consistent, beautiful and creative ministry of these talented young men!

Silent Night

Go Fish : More Than A Story

Review: The four young men of Go Fish have a polished, tight and professional sound, and though they are contemporary Christian, with a lyrical emphasis on a message that can't be missed, they have much in common with Rockapella and the Blenders. Indeed, the Blenders' own Darren Rust mixed this CD, which includes half original compositions, as well as holiday perennials such as 'Angels We Have Heard On High,' 'Silent Night,' and 'Away In The Manger,' though, in the case of 'Angels,' the Go Fish version is a 90's dance-mix. Likewise, 'Silent Night' is only recognizable by the words - the rhythm, melody and harmonization has been created anew. 'More Than A Story' is a musical dramatization, with a newscaster's voiceover, telling the tale of the birth of Jesus. Includes drum and percussion accompaniment.

Go Fish : Party Like A Preschooler

Review: 3-man Go Fish have 9 best-selling collections of their Contemporary Christian original tunes in the PAC catalog. "Party Like A Preschooler, is all accompanied covers, although all of them feature cutting-edge arrangements by the group. But the purpose of "Party" is more simple than previous recordings, which dealt with Christian issues and ways of seeing the world, "Party" is simply fun, sing-along and dance-along music for kids, done with amazing energy, joy and spirit by the group. "Do Your Ears Hang Low," "The Wheels on the Bus," "Pop Goes the Weasel," "5 Little Monkeys," "The A,B,Cs," "John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt"...these were as familiar as our breath when we were growing up, but we never heard them done like this. Kids will love "Party Like a Preschooler," and their parents will dig it too. As the headline in the liner notes says, this is "Great music for kids that won't drive parents bonkers." In fact there's a bonus track for dads, "It's hard to be cool (in a mini-van)!"

Go Fish : Snazzy

Review: Through six excellent previous CDs, Franklin, TN's dynamic all male trio Go Fish has long become one of our favorite Contemporary Christian groups. "Snazzy," their 7th, continues a trend that began with "Splash" when the "Go Fish Guys" became parents and directed their considerable musical writing, arranging and performance talents to turning on kids to Jesus. "Superstar," "Snooze," and the Showtime DVD, all excellent, followed, and "Snazzy" is every bit as powerful and innovative-we have to report, however, that the whole album is heavily percussioned and accompanied. That said, you and your kids will love these 13 songs, which "rock out," and do it well, more than any Contemporary Christian recording that we've ever heard. The title tune, "Stories," "Superhero," "Bible Book Bop," "Gotta Move," "Saved" and "Love Like This" all have an upbeat, hip Christian message that boogies down. "American Kid" is a patriotic anthem for kids that might have been written and performed by Aerosmith. The funky "Itsy Bitsy Spider" is one of the best arrangements on the album, "The Mom Song" is a hip love letter that everyone can relate to, and the refrain of "Jammies," "Get your jammies on--wash your face, brush your teeth, say your prayers, then go to sleep" is more good advice, that rocks, from Go Fish.

Go Fish : Snooze

Review: Since they have all married and some have become fathers, the members of one of our favorite Contemporary Christian groups, all-male a cappella trio Go Fish, have released some excellent material directed at their own and other children. "Splash," "Superstar" and the new DVD, "Showtime" are all winners, and "Snooze" is no exception. We were especially impressed with originals by group member Jamie Statema, who wrote the sweet title tune, "Little Buckaroo," "You Are Mine," "You're My Little Girl" and "Awake." We also liked the traditional "SkinnaMarinkyDinkyDink" and a pair of originals by Billy Sprague, "Sail Away" and "Welcome to the World." You can see the love here in the faces of the 3 dads, feel it in their voices as they sing these touching songs, and hear it in the lyrics. "You Are Mine" is a powerful lullabye, letting a child know that they are unconditionally loved and protected as they go to sleep-a big improvement on the fairly scary concept of "If I should die before I wake." Great stuff especially for parents and children from Go Fish!

Go Fish : Snow

Review: High energy Contemporary Christian all male trio Go Fish apply their tight Rockapella-like sound and cutting-edge arrangements to a Christmas collection, beginning with an accompanied, rewritten "Joy to the World," seguing into a surprising, upbeat "We Three Kings," with jazzy scat non-vocal percussion. An a cappella, traditional, richly harmonic "Away in a Manger/ Beautiful Savior" medley follows, a jazzy, heavily-accompanied original, "Christmas with a Capital C". A finger-snapping, mellow a cappella "White Christmas," a thought-provoking "It's About the Cross," plus the rhythmic, powerful "Little Drummer Boy." round out the album.

Go Fish : Splash!

Review: In their mission to share the word of God with the world through their music, Contemporary Christian , Minnesota-based 3-man group Go Fish have brought us 3 excellent a cappella CDs, "More Than A Story," "Out of Breath" and "Part of the Proof. Some non-vocal percussion, synthesizer, etc. are there, but the message, the voices and the infectious original words and melodies are what stands out. 10 songs: "I've Got the Joy" makes you want to get up and boogie, "The B-I-B-L-E," "Alleluia," the rocking, joyful chorus ("Oh me, oh my") of "Big, Bad Billy," the sweet, inspirational "You Are Mine," "Planes, Phones and Microwaves," the wonderfully arranged "This Little Light of Mine," "Ladybug," "My Very Own Church" and the powerful "I'll Do My Best." Go Fish, their music and their ministry just keep getting better and more popular, and every cut on Splash! is an upbeat winner!

Go Fish : Superstar

Review: Go Fish, a 3-man A Cappella powerhouse of sound, continues to spread the word of God in their newest album made especially to reach out to the younger generations. This CD is sure to be a treat for the whole family as it provides strong moral messages as well as catchy melodies, lush harmonies and a rockin' beat. "Superstar" features 10 unforgetable tracks, some highlights are the up-tempo inspirational tune "Superstar," the spiritually uplifting title, "Lord, I Lift Your Name on High," a fresh, contemporary version of "Jesus Loves me." Also, the educational "Ten Commandment Boogie," and an old favorite that parents are sure to remember and kids are sure to love, "SkinnaMarinkyDinkyDink." The CD ends with a beautiful soothing ballad "Sail Away"...and no, its not the Enya song. If you're looking for fun wholesome family oriented music, check out Go Fish.

Go Fish : Showtime

Review: Go Fish, one of our favorite Contemporary Christian groups, is an a cappella trio comprised of 3 young men, 2 of them fathers, who have toured across the country and sold over 500,000 albums. Jamie, Jason and Andy, those "Go Fish Guys," possibly because of their experiences with parenthood, have directed their ministry at children and their parents, with joyous results. Their CDs "Splash," "Superstar, the recently released "Snooze" and this new DVD, "Showtime" are all winners. "Showtime" features songs from "Splash" and "Superstar," and it is performed before (and with) an adoring, excited audience of kids and their parents. Interspersed with songs and silliness at the local county fair, the guys perform "Superstar," "I've Got the Joy," "The Crazy Dance," "The Ten Commandment Boogie," "This Little Light of Mine" and "That Acappella Sound." "Showtime" is advertised as "Great music for kids that won't drive their parents bonkers!"-indeed, far from it, people of all ages in the audience are up, dancing and singing along. Learning about Jesus and the teachings of the Bible becomes a celebration here, and everybody's included. Go, Fish!
