The Fat Catz
By using emotionally driven compositions that rely heavily on improvisation and progressive elements, the Fat Catz are sure to give the audience a show to remember. Bringing forth lush layers of electric orgasm, the Fat Catz create infectious and dance-frenzied atmospheres that are blissfully enigmatic. Whether performing on a street corner or atop a stage, their style leaves ample room for interpretation with no limitations to The Fat Catz’s sound.
This up-and-coming band found its start on New Years Eve 2014 when Ryan Waide and Van Greer Walker performed their first show. The group has since evolved with the additions of Lawrence Nichols and Christian White into what is now The Fat Catz.
Following the anticipated release of their debut studio album, With a Z, the Summer of 2016 is bursting with fresh opportunities for these hard working musicians. With MainStage appearances at festivals the likes of Rootwire, Camp Barefoot, and Pink Moon, The Fat Catz are breaking into the circuit and leaving their mark.
From the depths of rock n’ roll, funk and dance music Hell comes Disco Risqué. Formed in early 2014 in Charlottesville, Virginia, guitarist Charlie Murchie, drummer Robert Prescott and bassist John Bruner have spent their time together taking pieces of their souls, personalities and life experiences and manifesting them into notes and lyrics with one goal: To take over the world one sweaty, borderline psychotic music lover at a time. Since adding vocalist and trumpet player, Ryan Calonder, in early 2015 their music has taken on a warmth and soulful body that completes the sound they set out to achieve and a viciously captivating element to their live performances.
In the Fall of 2015 Disco Risqué released their debut self-titled double album recorded at The Sound Recording Studio in Charlottesville, Virginia. This ambitious release marks a milestone for the band and is, “The most important album to come out of Virginia in decades,” according to band manager Steve Lanza. The record pulls from influences all over the musical spectrum ranging from heavy metal riffs to espionage surfer tunes, catchy lyrical hooks, funky breaks and everything in-between.
