Mister Fister

Mister Fister consists of Tom Harlan on guitar and vocal chords, Chris McAlpin on drums, Jesse Eckhoff on bass, last but not least the 'Rip Master' Josh Ripley on lead guitar and back up vox. It all started with Chris + Tom had always been friends - they both liked music. Tom had a guitar + Chris his first drum kit, they were 13 + 14. Ever since they have been playing and writing with all sorts of people, + instruments. Sooner or later they started booking shows, and picked up a bassist named Andy Mahoney. Mahoney was with the band for quite some time, he later moved to South Carolina. After which they had been trying out several bassists + guitarists, but none fit the slot. Then they realized, ‘Hey you know we’ve jammed with Jesse on bass, so let’s try it.” - He was a great fit for the band. After being in the band awhile he told them about a rockin’ guitarist named Josh Ripley. They got together and practiced, suddenly all the pieces fit. Subsequently they’ve become a regular act at the 400 Bar in Minneapolis, and are getting bigger + better gigs more + more.
