Fat Cheek Kat / Bio

Fat Cheek Kat is a funk/roots band out of Winston-Salem, NC, known for its rockin' live shows, fun-loving stage presence, and down-to-earth vibe. While the band has been likened to a fusion between artists such as Galactic, Blues Traveler, and Ray Lamontagne, it is constantly evolving soulful, groove-based sounds all its own. Whether the Fat Cheek Kat is getting down with one of frontman Andrew Lazare's originals or putting a unique spin on one of many great covers, for the audience the party never stops.

Winning the Clubhouse/Ziggy's Bands of the Bands in Greensboro, NC, this past February has established the Fat Cheek Kat as one of the Triad's hottest new live acts. Since its inception in the summer of 2011, the band has frequented the Piedmont's notable venues and enjoyed a Wednesday-night residency at Ten O One Live in Winston-Salem.

The coming months are looking bright and busy as Fat Cheek Kat prepares to head into the studio in late March to record its first album. Visit Facebook for more info about the many exciting shows to come, including a number of festival appearances this spring and summer.
