The Fool’s Agenda: Rock and roll for the whole court.
WHO ARE THE FOOL’S AGENDA?
The Fool’s Agenda is a five-part rock and roll band that originated in Salem, Massachusetts in early 2019. Founded by Rhiannon Callahan, the band now consists of local friends/musicians Kyle Erickson (guitar), Will Bemiss (guitar), Jon Gray (bass) and Kamryn Bode (percussion).
Within a month of their formation the group had written a handful of songs and had booked their first gig as part of Porchfest in Reading, MA. Their performance included covers of their classic rock influences like The Doors, Pink Floyd, and Janis Joplin, alongside originals “When the Sun Shines” and “Underground”; the latter of which entitled their debut EP that followed that October, From the Underground. After that the group began practicing, writing, and gigging as often as they could while finishing college for their respective degrees. Inspired by the mysticism of their hometown and the idols that rocked before them, The Fool’s Agenda soon had enough material to record their debut record. Reversing the Tower released in October of 2021.
Described as “grungy Woodstock”, The Fools strive to bring magic to their music and madness to the masses.
“The band’s sound is mired in classic rock nostalgia with a modern twist that makes the group relatable to the constantly shifting musical climate.”–MusicBoxPete
“The Fool’s Agenda just gave us a rock opus of an album that plays out like a concept record and brings together garage rock, classic rock, and more along with lively soulful vocals that tell stories with great detail.”– Buzzslayers
