Fat Stanley - Funk Nuts!

High energy, 7 piece, full throttle funk band.

Fat Stanley are sadly no more. We put the band to rest in 2016 and all went on to do do other fun projects..

We were a full throttle, dance floor friendly funk/breaks crossover covers band from Frome, Somerset. 

Past Gig Highlights: Glastonbury Festival, supporting The Cuban Brothers, Goldie Looking Chain and Huey Morgan.

The core of the band were an experienced group of musicians who came together over a love of fine funky music.

They plunder the back catalogues of artists such as James Brown, The New Mastersounds, Spanky Wilson and Speedometer amongst others, as well as sometimes throwing in super groovy arrangements of their own to the mix.

  • Emma Harris on Vocals
  • Will Angeloro on Guitar 
  • Andy Barnett on Bass
  • Miles Pereira on Kit 
  • Mike Peake on Trumpet  
  • Vicki Bourke - Sax
  • Matt Wellsted on keys 

This 8 piece band, combined with their percussion and horn section, made for a truly formidable live experience!
