Little Big Fat / Press

"Engaging and interesting"

“Interesting jam band coming from the rich supply of Chicago. Are in their debut, but they know already offer great music. They can be approached at all and nothing, are guitar, energetic, creative and determined, and if we really want to say to those who may look like, well the first that come to mind there are Phish and moe. But they have a personal sound and a character already defined”

"These guys can play and they write some decent songs, too."

“Over the past year, Little Big Fat made the subtle transition from “band” to “recording artists.” With the October release of their debut, On A Stick, LBF offers another side of its fusion-y improvisational rock to the world. After gigging with some of its material for nearly five years, On A Stick is an attempt to capture a definitive record of the careful arrangements and unique chemistry of this Chicago based band. The Barn recently had the opportunity to discuss On A Stick with each of the members of the band. Here’s what they had to say about their inspiration, creative process and challenges of laying down their vision in the studio.”

“With thanks to Little Big Fat and Mr. Blotto, the eager crowd was entertained well into the night, with plenty of smiles, hugs and handshakes to bolster the room and raise the energy levels to previously unseen heights (for La Grange, that is). Drinks were flowing, the folks were dancing, and the bands were in top form. When LBF stepped up to christen the stage at the Mambo Room, the official journey of The Barn had begun. Opening with the original tune The Man From Bakersfield, LBF tore through a number of tunes that will be featured on their forthcoming debut album and a crowd pleasing, improv-heavy take on The Pretenders’ My City Was Gone. This set also featured the debut of Royal Chair, a mellow and soulful tune that evokes My Morning Jacket and a hint of R&B. By the time the band had closed their set with the one-two punch of the jammed out Monroe and a wicked cover of Zeppelin’s The Lemon Song, crowd was fully primed and ready for the forthcoming Blotto throwdown.”
