The six headed beast, Phat Mark, is a little like a cult; if you ask for, “Phat Mark” they respond, “We are all Mark.” Don’t let that scare you off, they’re not looking to recruit. They’re just hilarious folks who play jazzy funk pieces: keys, bass, drums , and horns!! The tech crew (Annamouse, Ian, and Dogwater Dick) had a huge set up for this sweet treat of an episode.
Birthed from the ashes of GLM’s production of Young Frankenstein, Phat Mark have put together a killer, group of grooves. Soothing, but funky and full; changing time signatures and keys, always keeping it interesting. We have Casey on trumpet and vocals, Morgan slapping the bass, Jarod with the saxophone, Vincenzo hitting the keyboard, Andrew mouthing up the trombone, and Dusty bringing it home on the drums. (We’ve been advised bout our attorney to leave out their last names until the statute of limitations is up.)
All in their twenties, Phat Mark are ready to have a good time. I personally imagine dancing for hours at their shows (which are often long sets up to 3 hours long). They’re on fire, hungry, and classically trained to funk your freakin’ socks off. And best of all: They are Reno as funk. Catch them ASAP.
As usual, the hosts share their weekend, we get a super mini quiz and Rick embarrasses Nick with some ancient audio drops from the vault. A truly funked up time was had by all. Thanks for listening.
Life is short and we love you. Peace!
