Northern Fried Revival - Roots, Rock, R&B.

Our music is a combination of R&B, classic and southern rock, mixed with a tinge of New Orleans funk, traditional blues and reggae for flavor. Blue eyed soul meets black eyed peas in a joyous, musical mashup.  Think Allman Brothers and Little Feat, Stevie Ray Vaughn and The Meters, Hall and Oats and Steely Dan.  Featuring these artists and many others along with some tasteful originals, our performances deliver an entertaining mix of authentic musicianship and audience engagement. Combining guitar, piano and organ, a tight rhythm section and multiple-part vocal harmonies, these all mesh to deliver that northern fried vibe.

A native of Portland ME Anthony fell in love with drumming at an early age. He got his first set in 7th grade (he still has it) and has been studying and playing ever since. In addition to being the captain of his High School soccer team, Anthony found time to contribute to his school's national award winning Marching Band, Concert and Jazz bands with appearances at the Rose Bowl and Disney World to name a few. In addition to his work work with Northern Fried Revival, Anthony has played in Jazz Trio’s, Pit Bands, and other bands throughout New England. He’s also a tech geek and the organizational king pin for the band.


James Hickey: Guitar, Vocals

Picture of Jim Hickey from The HootchiesIn addition to working with Northern Fried Revival, James has worked as a side man for acts like The Peacheaters and the Alex MacDougall Band. Through his 20+ years playing around Boston doing acoustic duo and solo work or in band settings like Northern Fried Revival, James’ lyrical guitar playing and specifically his expertise with slide guitar playing has made James a sought after player. But guitar is only one of his contributions to the band as his smooth baritone vocals – both on lead and background provide a nice contrast to Greg’s vocal approach. Jimmy shares his love of Guitar with students of all ages, when family and work can allow.
