Phatt City Rescheduled For An Additional Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Concert
The teams at the Downtown Statesville Development Corporation & the Greater Statesville Chamber of Commerce would like to extend their sincere apologies to everyone who came out to enjoy the Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 concert on Friday, August 5. There were regrettably sound issues that were out of their control. They invite you to join them in Downtown Statesville as beach, R&B and dance music band, Phatt City, will reclaim the stage on September 23, 2022 for the Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Summer Concert Series.
Phatt City is the name of the band originally founded in 1972, by a group of regional band directors and are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. The name came from a saying that describes a big, "fat" sound. The spelling was a play on words that was common in that era. Phatt City's original influences came from groups like Chicago and Earth, Wind, & Fire. Phatt City plays the best of beach music, R&B, Motown, and dance music. The bad consists of 9 members, including a full horn section of Trumpet, Tenor Sax, Trombone, and Bari-Sax. Along with a rhythm section, there are three lead singers in the group, with one being female. Phatt City is probably best known for having a great rapport with its audiences. Having fun is contagious, and Phatt City loves to spread it around!
