Fatback Band

Friday 8 July 2022

One of the most acclaimed disco, soul and funk groups to have ever emerged from America, The Fatback Band return to the Jazz Cafe after the sell out success of their last shows.

 

The grittiest of the US club bands of the mid 70s, they mixed jazz, funk and prefigured disco and were at the beginning of rap – their 1979 rap single ‘King Tim III’ was released a week before the Sugarhill Gang’s ‘Rapper’s Delight’. They also forged the mid-80s club anthem ‘I Found Lovin’ still a sure fire hit on the dancefloor.

With more than 35 albums released over the course of a hugely influential career, it’s with great joy that we welcome drummer Bill Curtis and his disco cohorts back to our stage.
