May 8, 2009
The members of Fatty Lumpkin grew up in Grapevine, Texas and began their musical journey shortly after meeting each other in 2000. The band draws their influences from a multitude of genres such as classic rock, hip hop, reggae, and jazz. Fatty Lumpkin’s first gigs came in 2003 when they locked in a weekly gig at a local bar after winning their first battle-of-the-bands competition. Fatty Lumpkin then hit Dallas/Ft. Worth, paying their dues by playing relentlessly around the area, deliberately crafting and polishing their sound and style. Fatty Lumpkin has steadily increased their output and reputation by branching out to venues and music festivals throughout the country including the Wakarusa Music Festival in 2008. Open act singer/songwirter Keegan McInore. Tickets are $10 each.
