Gabe, Dan, Nik, and Ted have been tight-knit friends since their middle and high school days in Orlando, Florida. After years of playing with each other in various bands, their shared love of funk and soul music led the four to start jamming together in Nik's woodsy backyard shed. Their shared love of greasy food kept them hanging out late into the night.
In 2013, Ohio-based soul label Colemine Records released Fat Night’s "Things You Do", a reverb-soaked single which Dusty Groove called "haunting, moody, and very compelling!" The same year, the band released their first full length, "Fat Night", followed by a six-song EP, "Lazy Days", in 2015.
Fat Night moved to Chicago in late 2016 before releasing their newest single, "Honest Man", in early 2017. They are hard at work on a new full-length album
There's this dynamic that churns hard in The Blurred Odyssey, the debut full-length album by ascendant Orlando garage-soul enterprise The Sh-Booms, out March 22, 2019 on Limited Fanfare Records. The music pumps with the hot, red blood of life irrepressible. But there's a cloud on the horizon, the doomed sense of life's finitude, that fueled these songs. Rather than dead-end nihilism, though, it's resulted in the kind of urgent, creative friction that Hunter S. Thompson could get down with. In making this album, The Sh-Booms have dug through the blur of life, swam through a sea of booze, to find love and truth in the shadow of the void.Although a soul band through and through, the grease and bite they've been picking up in the years leading up to this big step out have been forged in the bad company of punk and garage bands. From that underground now rises a new hurricane of big orchestration, maximum stomp and fresh intent. It's a little ache and a lot of party all wrapped up in a wrecking ball.Since their 2011 inception, The Sh-Booms have become kind of a thing in their native scene and beyond. Besides perennial winners of “Best Soul Act” in the Orlando Weekly's big annual Best of Orlando issue, they've been tapped to share the stage with national names like The Roots, Of Montreal, Talib Kweli, KRS-One, Jacuzzi Boys, Budos Band, Big Freedia, Lee Fields, St. Paul & the Broken Bones and The B-52's (whom the band toured with in 2017 and 2018). They've been featured on NPR, their music has been made it on TV (CW's Supergirl) and they've played Austin City Limits, Okeechobee Music Festival, SunFest and Gasparilla Music Festivals.Since powerhouse singer Brenda Radney joined in 2015, the band's course has been locked, their date with destiny set. She was signed to Justin Timberlake's Tennman label, even appearing on his album, The 20/20 Experience, Pt. 2. But after clicking with band leader Al Ruiz while recording separately in the same studio, she jumped aboard The Sh-Booms to turn this train into a true locomotive. After the release of their 2016 Usage Fee EP and a countless number of shows in the Southeast, the 10 songs along The Blurred Odyssey were Produced by Grammy-nominated Alan Armitage (AA Villain) over an 18-month span that cemented the band as a tight-knit unit. That chemistry achieved is where The Sh-Booms are now, and The Blurred Odyssey is their testament. The seas are stirrin'......The storm's a-brewin'
