Milwaukee’s Fat Penny, is primed and ready to make a name for themselves in the Midwest and beyond. Learning and growing faster than any band member could anticipate, they knew they had the beginnings of something special the first time they stepped into the same room together and plugged in their instruments. It is now their goal to become firmly planted in the scene, by showcasing their diverse songwriting talents, in your face licks, musical chops, sweet harmonies, and on their toes improvised style of music. You’re all invited to hop on for the ride!

At first listen, Fat Penny’s rock and roll roots cannot be denied. Though as things unfold, you’ll also catch a glimpse of their many other diverse influences ranging from bluegrass, funk, jazz, reggae, even heavy metal, and beyond. Fat Penny’s greatest asset is their ability to meld those styles to create a unique and entertaining musical experience night in and night out.

All members now call South Eastern WI home. Though they have all come from different places and backgrounds. Justin Bills not only has a knack for coming up with catchy guitar licks, his professional opera singing experience is just another added bonus in the mix. Matt Aho’s screaming guitar solos will leave you waiting to hear what’s next and your jaw will be dropped. He has melded rock and roll with All-American bluegrass/country to create a unique style all his own. Tony Kubicek holds down the low end with a melodic bass playing style. His studies in jazz guitar have made his bass playing reminiscent of a guitar player’s by filling spaces while still keeping a solid foundation. Keeping everything together and on pace is Scott Bednar. He lays the brickwork with solid drumming, and moves the band through peaks and valleys of sonic exploring.

Fat Penny is a force to be reckoned with. The vibe of the audience is what this band lives for. Feeding off that energy, they succeed in producing those spine tingling moments we have all come to know and love. When Fat Penny is your neck of the woods, they are not to be missed.
