Fat Cheek Kat (formerly The Heritage)
Fat Cheek Kat is a funk/roots band forged by three musicians living in Winston-Salem, NC in the summer of 2011. Though initially formed by; Andrew Lazare, Cass Copsey, and Marshall Bjorling, the band has had multiple incarnations, but one unifying mentality: a passion for live music and a desire to replicate what great artists have done for them, for the listener.
In their brief history, Fat Cheek Kat has certainly made their fair share of noise in the South. They have played their unique spin on funk and rock all over the south-east. Fat Cheek Kat sound is a unique blend of the soul of classic funk, roots, and rock n' roll with a modern groove based, high energy execution, while the live experience is an intimate and exciting exchange of energy between both them and the audience.
The Heritage released their first full-length record, recorded at the esteemed Fideletorium Recording Studio, on November 1st, 2013 and are now focusing new material and moving forward to bigger and better shows all across the buzzing southeast music scene.
