What happens when you take the musical freedom of Dave Matthews Band, the positive rock energy from 311, the intelligent quirks of Ben Folds, the melodic funk of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, the jazz-pop finesse and technicality of Herbie Hancock, the simple power of Jason Mraz, the rock riffs of Lynard Skynard and a splash of Bob Marley?
You would probably get something that sounds like Fat Tree. With that foundation of myriad influences, they have built a truly unique and engaging sound of their own.
Fat Tree is comprised of brothers Eric, Kyle, and Samuel Jacobs, and their long time friend Sam Bischof. They built a history together in the years they grew up in Alamogordo, NM, and that history shines through in their music, having roots in the past and branches into the future.
Fat Tree. A band that can rock with the hardest, chill with the coolest, impress your music instructor, and not take themselves too seriously! Old, young, and everyone in-between have been rallying around this unique band since their inception in early 2008. Their high energy and fun filled shows draw people from all facets of life.
They currently reside in the Phoenix valley in Arizona and play regular shows there. They independently released their first full length album, "The Great Give & Take" in December '09 and will be coming soon to a stage near you!
Fat Tree is a powerhouse of talent and fun! Their mission: "Flood the world with good music that most anybody can appreciate and enjoy. Give people an outlet to escape the pressures and troubles of the world. Put out the best music we can possibly dream up!"
So, come join in the musical celebration! Tap your feet, bob your head, do the happy dance, jump around, or just sit there! It doesn't matter, as long as you have fun and forget your worries! We invite one and all to participate in the musical journey that is Fat Tree.
