Trout Fishing in America is an eclectic folk/rock band best known for family music and kids’ songs. Songs like “My Hair Had a Party Last Night,” “18 Wheels on a Big Rig,” and “When I Was a Dinosaur” have earned them a place in the hearts of kids and parents everywhere. Ezra on guitar and banjo stands 6’8" tall while Keith on bass stretches to 5’5 1/2" on a humid day. Ezra is more playful and extroverted while Keith is more serious and reserved.
