One of the UK’s most exciting bands, Fat-Suit are forward thinking and nostalgic at the same time. Influences of the modern jazz greats combine with noughties indie guitar riffs, 90s dance sounds, and timeless groove and funk while their softer side opens up to folk melodies with Celtic roots.
Equally at home on a late night festival slot, jazz club, or concert hall, some recent performance highlights include Love Supreme Jazz Festival, Boomtown, Vsetin Jazz Festival (CZ), Budapest Jazz Club, and Jazzdock (Prague). Hailed as ‘One’s to Watch’ by Jazzwise magazine, and winners of ‘Best Band’ & ‘Best Album’ at the Scottish Jazz Awards, they embrace a seamless mix of musical styles in a ‘showcase of sonic domination’.
This gig is part of Fat-Suit’s tour to assemble material for their upcoming 5th album, featuring a formidable 8 piece line-up.
