Neptune's Keep is a most unusual band!

Two humans and two goldfish perform together in a truly astonishing musical partnership. Our concerts flow with sea chanteys, ballads, and original songs about water and the creatures that swim in it, fly over it, or sail upon it. Lilting vocal harmonies weave with expertly rendered accompaniment on hammered dulcimer, piano, concertina, and other instruments.

And through it all gently trickles music directly from the water: notes and chords composed and played entirely by fish as they listened to our human performers. Through an amazing marriage of art and technology, our musical fish comprise an aquatic orchestra, playing a diverse collection of virtual instruments from electric guitar to jazz bass to orchestral harp. Our amazing fish have mastered literally hundreds of instruments, painting our music with a lush, lyrical, otherworldly yet accessible sound. This unprecedented collaboration between human and fish redefines musical beauty!

Animal Planet TV, BBC Radio, Ripley's Believe It Or Not, and newspapers worldwide have featured our performing fish. Fish have hidden depths!

When space permits, we bring video projection to our performances so the audience can see our noteworthy fish in action. And you can watch them anytime on our YouTube channel.

Check our our recordings.

Neptune's Keep provides a musical experience you have never imagined and will never forget!

Note: For the comfort and safety of our animals, we do not bring live fish to Neptune’s Keep
concerts. Instead, audio and video recordings of our performing fish are seamlessly integrated into our live human shows.

NEW!! Our second album, City Beneath the Sea, is here!



Songs of mermaids, sailors, dolphins, and whales. Stories of love lost and won. Tales of sea people lost to time. City Beneath the Sea, the second album by Neptune's Keep, is a collection of original songs immersed in the theme of water —  its inhabitants, its culture, its role as life blood of our planet. Songs both lyrical and humorous nestle in waves of hammered dulcimer, piano, and concertina.

And trickling through it all are hauntingly beautiful strains of orchestral instruments played by the creatures most intimately familiar with aquatic realms — fish!
