Fat Rhabit is mesmorizing! Joel has an entrancing stage presence and the music to go along with it was powerful. I love when they break it down too and show their softer side. A definite must see!"

- Robin Nashl, PD of KEDJ


"For a band named after a slang term for a Tommy Chong-sized spliff, Fat Rhabit doesn't sound much like typical stoner rock. In fact, it doesn't sound like typical anything. On its six-song, self-titled EP, which was recorded in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the band plays straight-ahead rock laced with every garden variety of genres, with hints of Tool, Shiner and Hum laced throughout."

"...samples I heard off of Fat Rhabit’s upcoming full-length “rock opera-ish” album is remarkably accomplished yet straightforward rock shit, with emotive (but not “emo”) vocals. This could be classic rock one day. For the time being, let’s call it contemporary"
-Brendan Joel Kelly

"Fat Rhabit's sound is something like a Pearl Jam / Tool / Incubus incarnation. They rock the crowd with an rhythmic set of tunes, and create new fans with every show....they're a great band with a bright future."

- Arizona Republic / Get Out Magazine

Bio

Fat Rhabit showcases the band’s collective influences which produces a style of rock music that is both complex in textures and solid as terra firma. The band stays true to their sound and delivers high-energy rock that is undeniably of their name.

Front man Joel Broersma’s lyrical journey is paced with Dan Dupuis’ and Nick de Haan’s guitar & cello work that is a driving, melodic wall of virtuosity. Bassist Ross Troost and drummer Ian Breslin light an underlying fire that rages throughout this project in a style and sound that is reminiscent of legendary rock rhythm sections. Travis Englers' stylings on the keys form a fabric not unlike R & B, but with with a heavy dose of psychedelica.

Fat Rhabit is currently touring the Southwest U.S. and are soliciting offers from independent and major labels, corporate sponsorship, booking agents, and tour promoters.

Fat Rhabit headlined the nationwide "Freedom to Rock Tour 2005", covering over sixty U.S. military installations. Sponsored in part by MRV.

"Vultures" 2006. Fifteen dates spanning the Midwest US, in support of their independent release. on a self supported tour.
