In 1999 locals Kevin and Kathy Murphy purchased the Fishbones building and have been operating this unique restaurant ever since. In 2000 Chris Budhan, a young, enthusiastic 16-year-old, approached Kevin to help support his idea of developing an entertainment platform for young local musicians. The City Stages Program was created on Victoria Row and continues to grow to this day. Vic Row has become the music destination in Charlottetown by constantly showcasing talented local musicians. Fishbones has been supporting local fishermen, farmers, and local musicians for the past 21 years.
