Calling the Carolinas home.Spongecake and the Fluff Ramblers is an improvisational band that dabbles around the edges of Rock/Folk/ Funk/ Jazz Fusion. They meld jams in and out of genres and styles , falling into the occassional improvised cover. No two shows are ever the same , no cover is ever played the same way twice. SCATFR also has an alter ego ( sometimes referred to as Unkle Dad ) playing either electric or unplugged bluegrass and olde timey classics and originals.
SCATFR has been playing shows and festivals across the country for the past several years, winning fans and wrecking minds. They have become known for playing late night festival sets, often lasting into the early morning hours. Playing festivals in eight states to date.

They encourage artist and artisan vending at their shows, and often have live artist and other performers performing with them. They also invite audio and video recording of all performances.
