Fat Bastard Blues Band
May 1, 2015 · 9pm/$6
Today, their music jumps up and shakes a room with performances that mark this band as a force of nature, a blue wind that rattles the trees like an oncoming storm.
Since their formation they have played the Memphis Blues Challenge, opened the 2010 Bull Durham Blues Festival and have kept local fans dancing as if the floor was on fire.
Why Fat Bastards? We are the illegitimate children of all the players who have taken the stage before us. Our goal is to energize our roots by taking something from all of our influences and putting that cross-cultural magic back into the blues, America’s music.
And we come out fat, with nothing held back.
