HAPPY FISH is:  Gordon Joll, drums and Sue Joll, guitar and vocals.  Together they create bass and keyboard tracks 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 a booking somewhere, most weeks (as at April 2024).


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 50 years, having collaborated with such great names as Herbs, Hello Sailor, Rock Candy, 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 50 years having learnt to play guitar aged nine.    

In 2018, Happy Fish released their CD, "Catch Us On A Good Day".  There are seven songs penned by Sue, one, co-written with Gordon (Forever Starts Tonight), and two covers, Bob Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue", made super cool by Graham Bonnet and Neil Young's most beautiful "Harvest Moon".
