"“Sounding Board” Column by Patrick Fineran"

This is usually the part of my column where I give you the skinny on local music. Nothing but bare bone coverage here. Yup, lean and mean writing on bands. Not today folks. This week, we’re going to slather on the fat. Can’t you just feel those musical arteries clogging with aural goodies? Fat Sandwich has been lighting up clubs around the state over the past year. Some readers wondered why the band wasn’t mentioned in my WAMI congrats last article. There simply wasn’t enough room for all that fat last week.

The self-described Funk Soul Pop Groove combo platter was originally comprised of Kurt Pfeifer, Mark Sammon, Dave Hannes and Eric Wanek. Dario Wilson (or Chocolate Boy Wonder as he is know in solo performances around town) became a full-time member of the group in March 2002. Dario’s presence on turntables forced the band into unchartered territory and supersized the standard bass/drums/guitar/vocal funk-oriented rock band entrée.

Newest addition JessaLynne Moore has put just the right amount of Gospel Soul spice into Fat Sandwich. If you like bands like the Pipe Circus, check out Fat Sandwich and hear why they were nominated for the Wisconsin Area Music industry Awards for Best New Group/Artist and R&B/Urban/Scratch/Hip Hop. I know, that last one is a lot to digest. Remember to eat your vegetables or you don’t get any fat. Fat Sandwich performs next….

"Come and Get It! -- Fat Sandwich Serves Up Party-Sized Sounds"

Fat Sandwich has been lighting up clubs in Milwaukee for the past two years. This week, the band brings its musical flavor to Appleton and ensures “you won’t go home hungry.” Perfect timing for a holiday weekend designed for feasting.

This is not your standard bass/drums/guitar/vocal rock band entrée. Fat Sandwich blends together sounds from the 70’s to present into a combo platter of shake-your-moon-party-cranking-rhythms. Appleton-born front man, Eric Wanek, delivers dynamic lead vocals and contagious dance moves that drip with energy. The additions of Dario Wilson (a.k.a. Chocolate Boy Wonder) on scratch DJ and the Gospel/Soul vocal stylings of The Lovely Miss JessaLynne bring a hot dish to the table to satisfies all tastes. Fat Sandwich layers funk on top of groove between a toasted pop bun and serves it with a side of soul. Just be sure to save room for turkey.

Check out Fat Sandwich at www.fatsandwich.com and hear why they were nominated for the Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) Awards for Best New Group/Artist and Best R&B/Urban/Scratch/Hip Hop. Fat Sandwich performs Wednesday, November 26th with Cool Waters Band at Mill Creek Blues in downtown Appleton.
