fat freddys drop live review

Saw Fat Freddy’s Drop live at the Town Hall last nite. I first saw them live in 2003 and loved their unique mix of lanquid songs nourished by phat beats, and the spacious sounds within which are woven a unique blend of vocals to a unique mix of reggae, jazz, even soul. They are one of the best live music bands I have seen.

An opportunity for all my overseas readers to check out some of the best in current Kiwi music. European dates:

  3. A group of friends of mine saw Fat Freddys Drop last night at the Melkweg, Amsterdam and it was a phenominal experience! Amazing!

    I brought mostly non-kiwi friends and they were all blown away…one even had to walk away and write down what she was feeling as a result of the music, WOW! Now that’s intense!

    We were able to see them amongst an intimate gathering of 100-150, on one of the few hot summer nights in Amsterdam.

    If you get a chance to see them live, DO IT!
