The Aquarium Rescue Unit Is a band originated in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

They usually play genres such as Rock, Progressive rock, Jazz fusion, Funk.
This band gained popularity until 1990, and through the years it never got comercially successful, but that never stopped them from keeping the hard work on their music.

Here is an old video of my favorite song of this band called “Stand Up People” from the album “In a Perfect World

I hope you enjoy it as I always do

When I first heard this band, I thought that I was hearing something new and contemporary, something fresh and awesome, that makes you need to know more about this band. So for my surprise, this band is older than me!. Makes you think How does a 1988 band, with a good quality of music and a really contemporary sound is still very “underground” on the world of music?.

Also, if you look at all the past members there have been in this band (8 past members), you’ll realize that having a band is not that easy, a band is like a workteam, a union, a family.

So, great job on The Aquarium Rescue Unit for their hard work. And we hope that they continue as a band for many years more.
