Big Fat Combo
"Big Fat Combo is a super cool band- it’s hard to put it any other way. They play rootsy American music, mixing well crafted originals with a surprising pick of left field cover tunes. A solid rhythm section featuring stand up bass, a charismatic hero-type front man and a guitarist who makes the most wonderful bunch of noises come out of his instrument, all combine to a groovy rock experience.. Their debut CD may be taking longer to finish than the latest Axl Rose piece, but it will be worth the wait."
Influences include Link Wray, Ramones, Eddy Arnold, Ropeburns Russell, Elvis, Sons of the Pioneers, The Ventures
