The band was formed as a electric/acoustic duo by Morten Lunn and Thomas Foldberg in 2003.
Together they soon developed a love for the raw and stripped down sounds of RL Burnside, Jr. Kimbrough, Kenny Brown, Asie Payton , T-Model Ford and Robert Belfour! The duo started as a warm up act for bigger Danish Blues names.

Under a year later they turned into a quartet (adding bass and drums) and during a trip to Chicago Mr. Lunn gave the band it´s name while sitting in a south-side restaurant (that was eventually closed).. The Fried Okra Band.
Most of the material was borrowed from the giants of the North Mississippi Hills and reworked blues-classics.
The "new" band played several gigs around Denmark, Norway and Sweden - from small clubs to festivals. With that approach they released their first album "This is Your Chance, France Baby"
Gradually the band´s repetoire changed from covers to mostly original stuff developing a very personal style. A style that was captured on the second album: "Black Cherry"

In the fall of 2011 the band took on a new approach by turning the quartet into a trio consisting of M. Lunn on guitar/vocals/diddley Bo,
T. Foldberg on guitar/harmonica and T. Crawfurd drums/perc/mandolin!
Occasionally a forth member is added - Henrik Silver playing the bass horn - the sousaphone!

The third release from The Fried Okra Band "There's A World Outside My Door" boasts the raw sound of a trio concentrated around vocals, two guitars and drums. Further spice is added by the one string Diddley Bo, harmonica, mandolin, banjo-mandolin, a variety of percussion and last but not least, fat sousaphone bass lines laid down by the occasional fourth member of the band.

The Fried Okra Band is:
Morten Lunn : Vocals and guitar
Thomas Foldberg : Guitar and harmonica
Thomas Crawfurd : Drums, mandolin, percussion
and Henrik Silver (the occasional fourth member) : Sousaphone
