The Phat Luv Band is known as Oakland's "house band," playing classic funk, soul, R & B, jazz, and even a few rock and roll tunes. Whatever music they play, Phat Luv is known for infectious high energy fun that is guaranteed to get the crowd up and dancing. Phat Luv plays frequently at Oakland's Lake Chalet, Oakland First Fridays, San Francisco's Sunday Streets, and many other venues such as the Ivy Room, Beach Chalet, the Executive Club and many Bay Area farmers markets. Phat Luv has been well received by hundreds of fans and has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, KQED’s Check Please Bay Area, KPFA and other media outlets for their relatable music (eclectic covers and creative originals). Whatever the genre, the audience is always both inspired and welcomed to participate.
Phat Luv features vocalists whose harmonies bring heaven to earth. Their belief and goal is that "everyone" has art inside of them, and they seek to break down the walls between audience and artist by encouraging open participation. When it happens, magic occurs!
