The venue’s live music stylings are as diverse as the people who come to enjoy an evening out at Fatty's. They have showcased many local rock and roll cover bands, some rock-a-billy, a little new age rock, a lot of southern rock, and country. The bands we have had so far cover popular music and play some original pieces of their own. Local talent that has performed recently is Madigan, Abraham's Tree, The Blacklight Mannequins, Rainchild, Zach Tate Band, Johnny Falstaff, The Dennis Price Band, JJ Dynomite, and acoustic bands like Southbound and Dave Owens.
Local favorites Madigan and Abraham’s Tree are back at Fatty’s in August along with Modern Art.
Fatty's offers a fun, friendly, comfortable, and inviting atmosphere any night of the week. Mustache Karaoke is held Tuesday nights with a host fresh from Branson, Missouri. This is something new, so everyone is welcome to roll on up to Fatty's to enjoy some karaoke fun.
On Thursday nights, come join the fun at Fatty’s Open Mic and talent night giving local musicians the opportunity to showcase their talents. Fatty’s enjoyed having Dayna Steele, of the Texas Radio Hall of Fame, as a guest for the open mic night recently to see the first public appearance of a new band in the area, The Jared Zolli band.
Fatty's is working on hosting a battle of the bands during their open mic and talent night which management promises to be “fun and interesting.”
The acoustics are fantastic at Fatty’s. The venue also offers a nice-sized raised stage in addition to some lighting. Bands wishing to book a gig at Fatty's should go in any early afternoon to speak to management.
Zach Tate of the Zach Tate Band says this about Fatty’s, “Management is very cool to work with. They encourage and support local original music! Fatty’s has good live music sensibility, understands the importance of providing a good stage and working atmosphere for a band to play while still managing to keep the place at a listenable volume for customers.”
Dustin Condon of Rainchild says his band has a lot of fun when performing at the venue and the Fatty’s crowd is great fun. Most of the weekend entertainment starts around 9 p.m. and a jukebox is available in between the live music. Fatty’s has both indoor and outdoor seating. All live music can be enjoyed with fabulous drink specials, too.
