Fat-Suit Album Preview Show
Entry Requirements: over 18s only
Scottish Jazz Award winners Fat-Suit return to their hometown to showcase a selection of new songs which will be featured on their next album. This is the first time in over a year the group described as "the best band in British music full stop" (BBC Radio Scotland) have performed a headline show in Glasgow...don't miss out!
The Fat-Suit manifesto embraces a seamless mix of styles, but the top priority is to provoke maximum joy through exuberant performances and stunning recordings of original compositions. More and more people are switching on to the Fat-Suit experience, and telling others the great news - it is possible after all to have quality alongside quantity. Fat-Suit have built a large following in a very short space of time and word of mouth began almost immediately following their debut gig in 2013 at Mono Cafe Bar, a venue in Glasgow’s Merchant City district. Since then, Fat-Suit have recorded and released three albums of entirely original material, and consolidated their reputation as an amazing live act. They have embarked upon two European tours and won both 'Best Band' and 'Best Album' at the 2017 Scottish Jazz Awards.
"A remarkably rich sonic tapestry... They push at boundaries without ever becoming self indulgent and create a genuine and sincere rapport with an audience that is second to none... You owe it to yourself to check them out" - TickX
"...the repertoire comes from across the band’s personnel and reflects the presence of finalists in both the Young Jazz Musician and Young Traditional Musician of the Year competitions, it shares a common trait of being devilishly well punctuated, with brilliantly precise jabs and stop-on-a- sixpence endings.They make a mighty sound indeed." - HeraldScotland
