Happy Fish is: Gordon Joll, drums and Sue Joll, guitar and vocals.

Together they create bass, keyboard, brass and backing vocal tracks as well as performing live drums and guitar to give a full band sound.

They play a mix of popular rock songs and original music with an emphasis on Kiwi music.

Happy Fish formed in March 2015, their love for each other and their music was instant and Happy Fish quickly became a very popular act on the Pub and Club circuit with bookings well in the future.

Gordon Joll is one of New Zealand’s most accomplished musicians; a drummer of world class status who has played a part in shaping New Zealand’s musical history for over 40 years, having collaborated with such great names as Herbs, Hello Sailor, Prince Tui Teka, Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra, Billy T. James, Tom Sharplin, Hammond Gamble, The Mockers, Glen Moffatt, Brendon Ham, the list goes on. 

Gordon is an inducted member into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame.

Sue Joll, guitarist / singer / songwriter, has been an all-round musician for over 30 years with a rich and powerful voice, having played bass for Monique Rhodes, Doc Savage and Hashtag and rhythm guitarist and vocalist for Too Wild and Fatal Attraction.  Sue’s unique, rhythm guitar “feel” is heavily influenced by the rich musical talent that hails from the Far North of New Zealand where she grew up.  Sue caught the attention of Jordan Luck who invited her up to sing with him at a recent gig.

Happy Fish released their first CD in 2018, “Catch Us On A Good Day”

Hi Pete
Yes the party went well with lots of great feedback about the band. Happy Fish were very professional and showed off their talent with spades. Gordon's drum solo half way through the night was a nice highlight too.
Best Regards

Hi Robyn,
Happy Fish were absolutely great!
In all areas - great communication before the event, smooth set up and when they played... all of our guests just loved it. Dancing from the first song of the night to the last. Packing up and leaving without any fuss.
Gordon and Sue are very very nice people as well as great musicians and we could not be happier with our experience with your team and theirs.

Hi, yes, Happy Fish were great! 

Hi Robyn
The band were fabulous! So friendly and accommodating. 11 out of 10! Thanks heaps.

"I had the pleasure of booking the band for a small private gig. Even though it may have been a bit of different set up for Sue and Gordon, they kept it all professional. They fitted in perfectly as they are such a fun relaxed act to watch and dance to. I had lots of positive comments post event about Happy Fish. Really enjoyed the original pieces too." Pippa Partington
Kind Regards
Sue and Gordon
