Fat Face Band

August 31, 2016 / Snug Harbor

The Fat Face Band formed 2011 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The trio has since performed throughout the Southern US, including for President Barack Obama’s 2012 Democratic National Convention. Featuring a unique instrumentation (trumpet/melodica, guitar, and tuba), Fat Face blends styles and sounds from New Orleans, traditional Americana, alongside jazz standards, original compositions, and avant-garde. In June 2014 the Fat Face Band traveled to the United Kingdom for a two-week tour sponsored by Apollo Jazz Network and Wessex Tubas.
