Meet the Band / Fools and Horses

Hometown: Baltimore

Current members: Matt Hutchison, rhythm guitar and vocals; Kent Warren, lead guitar, bass and vocals; Bill Dixon, keyboards, bass and vocals; Tim Hutchison, percussion and vocals

Founded in: 2002

Style: Song-oriented modern rock

Influenced by: The Beatles, the Who, Coldplay, Franz Ferdinand

Notable: Though the band plays mostly covers when gigging out of the area, it has developed a solid fan base by sprinkling its set with originals from its first album, Saturday Morning, and the work in progress, Pop Filter.

Quotable: "Sometimes it's hard for them to delineate what's a cover and what's an original," Matt Hutchison said. "More often than not, we get fans that way, because we play a song that they don't recognize, but apparently it's got enough catch and enough hook for them to think otherwise."

Hear Fools and Horses tomorrow at Nottingham's. The music starts at 10 p.m. Tickets are $5. Nottingham's is at 8850 Stanford Blvd. in Columbia. For more information, call 410-290-0077 or visit
