Featured Artist – FatPocket
Today we’re featuring FatPocket, a 10-piece party band featuring razor sharp rhythms, hot horns and powerhouse vocals. Having received virtually all available accolades (Knot Best of Weddings, 2-time Riverfront Times Best Cover Band, 2-time St. Louis Magazine A-List Party Band of the Year and more), FatPocket continues to play dozens of weddings, corporate events, clubs, casinos, fairs and festivals every year.
Who are some of your favorite artists to cover?
Oh man, definitely Bruno Mars, Stevie Wonder… I love Heatwave but we don’t get to play them often.
What should people know about the band?
I think they should know that we’re an eclectic group that derives it’s energy from itself… does that even make any sense? (chuckles). Okay we just try to do the best we can man!
What’s your favorite song to play right now?
I think our version of “That’s What I Like” (Bruno Mars) is really cool and challenging. We always look to the live cuts when learning new songs since they always have more oomph. Our version of “Finesse” is pretty cool too… mashed up with Michael Jackson, Young MC, BBD and a famous rap from a 90s tv show…
What’s your most memorable performance?
Five years ago we played our first show in Vegas. Getting ten musicians on a plane to play a showcase was a big moment for us and everything started to gel together.
