Phat Strad: The Original Rock Electric String Quartet

Phat Strad is America’s original female rock electric string quartet, based in Las Vegas and performing live all over the world. At the core of our music is a lifetime of classical training, real musicianship, and respect for the 400-year-old art form that is the string quartet. At the forefront of our stage performance is stunning beauty, rockin’ guitar-pedal artistry, groovy improvisation, and some good old Las Vegas flair.


Phat Strad is a band with incredible versatility and entertainment potential. With over four hours of music in our repertoire, we can provide the perfect soundtrack for any occasion: our genres include classical, operatic, adult contemporary, classic rock, current rock, dance/electronic and the most-requested pop hits from the 80s through the present day. Our wireless instruments enable us to perform in any configuration you require – past clients have had us walking the runway with models; floating in the air on fifteen-foot-high hanging pedestals; making grand entrances on mansion staircases; and providing true surround sound on rotating platforms, to give you just a few ideas. We play and interact with DJs, dancers, and other bands, and our self-contained sound production and engineering will save you serious cash. And of course, no matter how many musicians you need, we’re there for you with over 20 beautiful women in our talent pool. Don’t settle for mediocrity – choose Phat Strad for real talent, real beauty, and real entertainment.

We’re Lovin’ It! Phat Strad Strings for McDonald’s at Sands Expo

Phat Strad McDonalds Phat Strad Electric Strings Sands Expo

One great thing about being based in Vegas is that we are often the first call for entertainment during convention season. Companies love bringing their employees to Vegas as a reward for jobs well done or as an escape from the daily grind, and we love to be a part of that escape by providing a style of entertainment many of the guests have never seen before! The Sands Expo in the Venetian, with over 2,000,000 square feet of space, is a prime destination for conventions and a venue we play in regularly. McDonald’s recently took over much of that space for a huge event to highlight all the different facets of their business and show how they are making progress in today’s fast-paced world. The ladies of Phat Strad were stationed around the main entrances of the space to greet the guests as they arrived, and we provided an upbeat soundtrack for them as they browsed the many booths and displays. We loved to see them smile!
