Never breaking from the solid formula of Improv jazz enhanced rock phrases, the band is certainly one that entertains with graceful magnificence - Itunes Store


Fat Apple is always aiming to carry their music to the next level, which means hard work and a serious focus on what the fans want. ~ Larry Belanger, All Music Guide - All Music Guide


A highly anticipated night in the Fan district brought about a mind-blowing performance by this highly underrated jam band - Fat Apple. - JamBase


We don't get to see these guys around Mobtown all that much. Baltimore-based Fat Apple spends much of its time on the road, taking its long (sometimes all night long) "Appleland" shows to an ever-increasing fan base across the nation. We're thrilled that the Apples are finding favor throughout the land, but nothing's more wonderful than when one of the mid-Atlantic's hardest-working groups makes music for the folks at home. The quintet--drummer Dave Lawson, guitarists Scott Lloyd and Chris Pastore, percussionist Barry Cooper, and bassist Ben Whitten--makes groovaluscious music with startlingly rhythmic percussion, intricate funk passages, and killer solos. The band's self-titled debut CD features mind-blowingly clever original songs with whip-smart lyrics and a loose, funky sensibility that keeps Appleheads grooving for hours on end. If the job of a good jam-rock band is to create kindness and community through original music, Fat Apple more than fits the bill. - Baltimore City Paper


And jam-rock is exploding--bands such as Phish, moe., String Cheese Incident, Deep Banana Blackout, Fat Apple, and Govt. Mule are doing their damnedest to serve those for whom noodling is a good thing. - Baltimore City Paper


” Indeed, Fat Apple converted a small hidden piece of forest into none-other than what they call “Appleland.” It was the hidden surprise in a festival filled with surprises. - Jambands.com

Bio

Fat Apple burst unto the scene at the 3rd Annual Autumn Equinox Festival for a crowd of 5000 fans. Although Fat Apple opened the festival on the main stage, it was there late night " Appleland " set that earned them a spot in the jam band scene. Fat Apple began booking gigs early on while they only had limited material to work with, thus was born the persona that many associate the band with - a show based on improvisational workings. That still rings true today, if one listens closely to to the extended jam of " Gov't Cheese " or " 800 S. Broadway " they are sure to hear Fat Apple pay tribute to any number of there influences from Pink Floyd to The Allman Brothers Band. Fat Apple has toured the country several times over playing alongside some of the jam band scene's most noted bands, including..Umphrey's McGee, STS9, The Disco Biscuits and The String Cheese Incident. Fat Apple is back re-energized with new material and the original lineup still searching for that perfect jam.
