Bar Wisdom

by LowFat

This eight-piece Bay Area groove collective gets the drinks flowing and the people dancing by throwing down a home brew of horn stabs, turntable scratches, funky guitar, dub-reggae bass, and Timbaland-style synths, all wrapped up with a funky back beat.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
LowFat is straight ripping. Where jam band meets hip-hop, LowFat combines the funk of Galactic,the danceability of a Neptunes joint, and the soul of SoCal, Sublime-style reggae. This eight-piece Bay Area groove collective gets the drinks flowing and the people dancing by throwing down a home brew of horn stabs, turntable scratches, funky guitar, dub-reggae bass, and Timbaland-style synths, all wrapped up with a funky back beat. This is a band for folks who want to get their party on.

LowFat is the brainchild of Bay Area native Chris Uiterwijk, a vocalist, keyboardist, and guitar player. Originally a studio project for his label Rizla Records, LowFat's live show grew with the addition of funk bassist Patrick McGreal, also a Bay Area music veteran. Together they scoured the local music scene for the right drummer until they found Ed Meares, who recently played with the latin funk band Sangano. This funky foundation provides the brick house structure necessary for creating a hot live show. Now an eight piece-band, Lowfat features the ridiculous turntable skills of the TFS crew member DNZ, alto saxophonist Matthew Campbell, ska-skank trombones by Brigham Hausman, tenor sax belts from Peter Hulst and soulful vocals by Karyn Paige. For every show LowFat rolls in local MC's and vocalists, which keeps fans coming back with the expectation of a new and different experience that is guaranteed to be crackin!

Since its first gig in 2001, LowFat has played and promoted shows at many of the Bay Area's most popular nightclubs including Cafe du Nord, Paradise Lounge, Cactus Club, El Rio, Red Devil Lounge, Starry Plough and Hotel Utah. They also recently headlined the Last Day Saloon, to celebrate the release of their 17-track debut album Bar Wisdom. Over the past four years they've developed a loyal fan base that knows LowFat's sick hip-hop beats, NOLA infused grooves, and dub-reggae jams will provide the soundtrack to buying another round.
