City-based band ‘Fatman Trio’ is all set to perform at Cuba Libre on June 27
With a name that reflects upon the band’s sense of humour, The Fatman Trio, are all set to go places. These Hyderabadi boys who have been playing for over a year as a band are quite happy with the music scene and are optimistic about it picking up. Aradhya Alamuru, guitarist says, “The idea began a year ago when my bassist and I were playing without a drummer. Our search for a drummer ended nine months after our impromptu jam sessions.”
Ask about the band’s name and Aradhya jokingly reflects, “We were supposed to be playing at a competition somewhere and we couldn’t come up with a name. A friend of ours, while trying to humour us, called us The Fatman Trio and we’ve been a band ever since.”
The trio is a blues rock band with jazz influences. Apart from Aradhya, the band consists of Krishna Chaitanya on the bass guitars and Joshua on the drums, the band has performed over 20 shows, including a couple of acoustic sets. “The scene in Hyderabad is picking up thanks to the many initiatives of Cuba Libre or XSB these days. But we wish we do not have to procrastinate over that long dry period between two shows,” they say.
While the band’s forte is primarily blues rock, they also innovate with old blues songs arranged and presented with a refreshing three piece band framework. Hop into Cuba Libre to listen to them playing on June 27. Some of the best blues rock artists will come alive, from the Cream to Hendrix, added with the band’s very own sense of humour and style, keeping alive the rock tradition in Hyderabad.
