Formed in 2018, Phatt James delivers a refreshing mix of alternative rock and pop, sending listeners right back into the late 90s/early 00s era of bands such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Incubus. The band, consisting of lead guitar/singer Matt James, drummer Chris Wilson, and bassist Matt Christoforo, began hitting their stride in the early months of 2020, set to play on the legendary Toad’s Place stage to a near sold out crowd, but was unfortunately brought to an abrupt halt due to the Coronavirus pandemic. With all live music being put on hold, the three piece group took to the studio to begin the recording process of their debut full length album. Collectively, the band decided that the best course of action for this record was to transform drummer Chris Wilson’s parent’s basement into a fully functional studio. Fast forward to 2022, and the band has released the first two singles from this album, each track being reviewed in publications such as A&R Factory, Booklet Magazine, and Indie Spotlight.
The band looks forward to releasing their debut album, Just Begun, in May 2023 and are excited to continue to book more shows into this year.
This show is 21+.
