Bio

Fat Louie has been a performing punk band since February 2000. We formed when Devin Biy (drummer) and Reiss Zurbyk (bassist) and Cody Larson (guitar) had a jam session together at Devin's for band practice. The school was having a talent show which was only supposed to be for "air-bands" and dancing and crap, so we decided to push the teachers to let us enter. The crowd began jumping, and the older kids started moshing to what was going to be the start of a new aweosme punk rock band for Stonewall, Manitoba. We had to move on to other people for our band line up and let Ian go. There was a perfect opportunity for a small little gig at the local dance hall for Fat Louie. With a crowd of approximately 100, we had even the younger children chanting "Fat Louie! Fat Louie! Fat Louie! to our first big single "Hit 'N' Run". This single was then played about 1 week later at the Red River Exhibition talent show infront of a crowd of about 150. Joel Large was asked to sing for Fat Louie but stage-fright overcame him. Cody met up with a guy from Stony Mountain named Ryan Moore. Apparently he was extremely wicked at guitar, so we decided to have some band practices with him. Everything would have worked out great with him if hockey wouldn't have interfered. School started in September and we all ended up in jazz band class to end up hearing a very talented guitarest. Adam Surcon was hammering away on his guitar when we asked him to join us for a band practice. Our band practice turned out to be one of the most succesful band practices ever. And from then on we've carried on practicing and trying to get as many shows as possible. Fat Louie's next show was at Murray's corn maze. With a crowd of over a hundred, the teens moshed to a cover show which the band put together. Our next show was once again at the Perochial Hall, which was also an incredible show, which we played some of our own tunes for the very first time. They performed was broadcasted on the radio. This was a talent on a local talent contest on the radio and won "Most Promising Performer". Devin had to leave since he had other ambiions in life. We all knew Phil Cieslar was fast and accurate because we'd heard him in other local bands at local shows. The line up has been the same ever since. They have had the honor to play shows with bands such as The Casualties, Gaslight Anthem, MxPx and The Bouncing Souls. With the new line up they recently recorded an EP in February 2009. Together Fat Louie is an incredibly talented, enthusiastic, active and energetic band and is pumped to play rock and roll just for the thrill. We just love playing music.
