Fat Daddy Has Been
Some incredible rock history was made in this iconic venue with amazing artists who graced the small, but significant, stage. Dobbs is such a legendary venue that a famous radio sound byte has Eddie Vedder talking about how he loved playing JC Dobbs with Pearl Jam. He gave a shout-out to the NEW JC DOBBS at a recent area Pearl Jam concert. It’s also the stage where the late, great Bo Diddley ripped through his signature rhythms.
Nirvana played here when they were a quartet and then twice again as a threesome, just before their album Nevermind’s explosive debut. Slash jammed with a local band in an impromptu Johnny-B-Good jam on Dobbs’ stage. Billy Corgin and Courtney Love hung out at the bar, as have members of the Smashing Pumpkins, The Breeders and L7.
Artists who made their Philadelphia debut at JC Dobbs include: Soul Asylum, Nirvana, Mother Love Bone, Indigo Girls, Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine, Green Day and The Offspring.

Fat Daddy Has Been will be performing August 11, 2011 with New Orleans Funk Powerhouse Big Sam’s Funky Nation. The show is in Fat Daddy Has Been’s native Wilmington Delaware at The Queen Theatre. Both bands feature horn sections, and danceable funk grooves, that makes the line up a perfect fit.
Big Sam’s Funky Nation is a driving force of urban funk. Ryan White, of the Oregonian, says the band is “tight enough (and hot enough) to turn coal into a diamond!” The band is led by trombone powerhouse, Big Sam Williams, formerly the trombonist for the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, who the San Francisco Chronicle calls “the top man on the slide trombone in the birthplace of jazz.” Big Sam refuses to let the audience sit still. Between the band’s solos, Big Sam’s signature dance moves and his distinctive trombone riffs, the energy level is high voltage when this band takes the stage!
“Big Sam’s Funky Nation is in rare company as far as their ability to incite a huge dance-a-thon, and their set included his take on “Hard To Handle” and the declaration that Sam is the king of the Jazz Fest  party.” Wesley Hodges, Jambase
The Fat Daddy Has Been single “Cannot Kill My Music Remix” ft. Dice Raw from the album Cannot Kill My Music was recently feature on http://www.ALLHIPHOP.COM in the music section. ALLHIPHOP.COM is the world’s #1 Hip Hop web site, by traffic, and reliability with it being an Associated Press news source. The song which was remixed by Tim Sonnefeld and Fat Daddy Has Been at Milkboy Studios in Ardmore Pa, features a verse from Dice Raw (Producer of The Roots), and a bonus third verse from Fat Daddy Has Been front man Marchitect. The remix bridges the gap between, what a live band would play at a concert, and what a Dj, would spin in between sets at a concert, to make a very nice mash-up.

Fat Daddy Has Been will be in Manhattan Friday, July 8 @ 11 pm at club S.O.B.S at (200 Varick st. on the corner of 7th ave andVarick st.) They will be playing with Zouk Music sensation Nilton Romahlo who will be making his New York City Debut at the concert dubbed “A Night In Cape Verde.”
In its early days, SOBs existed on a barren stretch at the corner of Varick and Houston Streets, but the area soon became the trendy neighborhood of SoHo and the venue’s reputation began to grow with performances from Latin legends like Tito Puente, Marc Anthony, Celia Cruz & Eddie Palmieri. The tradition of Brazilian artists has been nothing short of incredible. Legends like Seu Jorge, Ben Jorge & Astrud Gilberto have all graced the stage of the venue which gained its namesake from their native country. In terms of the new Latin sound, the list only gets more impressive with names like Isaac Delgado, Orquesta Aragon, Los Papines, Manolito Simonet, Septeto Nacional Ignacio Piñeiro & Los Van Van.
Over the course of its 28 years in business, SOBs has also developed a reputation in the music industry as a breeding ground for emerging artists and trends. For newer performers, a show at SOBs can be the springboard for their careers, garnering them press from mainstream local, national and even international publications as well as attracting attention from music industry professionals. This has been the true with uncounted artists, including John Legend, Erykah Badu, Kanye West, Common, Drake & Ryan Leslie.
The venue gives more established artists the opportunity to connect with their fans on a personal level, due to its unique, intimate setting . Today the SOBs draws both local and international crowds and continues to specialize in Latin music, Haitian, Brazilian, Caribbean, R&B, Hip-Hop and World music. It exists as a unique place to experience the lively sounds from all types of cultures within the global diaspora, a fact reflective in its slogan the “Home of Universal Music.
Fat Daddy Has Been recently released a mash up of live footage from The Ozomatli/ Fat Daddy Has Been show @ Dewey Beach Delaware featuring the songs “City of Angels” and “Nickels and Dimes”. “We made this little mash up for the fans, so they can always relive that classic night” said front man Marchitect.
Fat Daddy Has Been will be playing with Los Angeles’ own Ozomatli Friday June 24th, 2011 @ 9pm to 1 am.
In their fifteen years together as a band, celebrated Los Angeles culture-mashers Ozomatli have gone from being hometown heroes to being named U.S. State Department Cultural Ambassadors.
Ozomatli has always juggled two key identities. They are the voice of their city and they are citizens of the world.
Their music — a notorious urban-Latino-and-beyond collision of hip hop and salsa, dancehall and cumbia, samba and funk, merengue and comparsa, East LA R&B and New Orleans second line, Jamaican ragga and Indian raga— has long followed a key mantra: it will take you around the world by taking you around L.A.
Fat Daddy Has Been was voted Delaware’s best live act, and should be a perfect fit, to share the stage with Ozomatli.

Fat Daddy Has Been was scheduled to play the outside stage at The Rusty Rudder during the 2011 Dewey Beach Music Fest. The only trouble was, severe winds and torrential rains, literally destroyed the outside stage. All of the bands from the outside, were cancelled due to the fact that the bands inside, already had their performance times set. Thanks to some help from the band E9, and promoter Vicki Walls, Fat Daddy Has Been was able to secure a spot on the inside main stage, and play their 45 minute set as planned to a packed Rusty Rudder crowd.
