Phat Strad acted both as musicians and “bridesmaids” at a beautiful August wedding in San Diego, CA. Playing as both an acoustic and an electric string quartet, the girls started off the ceremony with several classical pieces – and a classical rendition of Queen’s “Somebody to Love.” Following the wedding itself, the versatile group played a dinner set of ambient pop songs and operatic ballads, then rocked out alongside a great funk band to keep the party going until the end of the night!
Isn’t it great when work unexpectedly brings you a vacation? This past June, eight rockin’ girls comprising the Phat Strad double string quartet got their electric instruments through customs to play in beautiful Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The gig included playing several events for executive personnel of Canada’s Keg Steakhouse & Bar, in resort locations and on a carefully constructed stage in the middle of the mountains. And, much to everyone’s delight, there was enough time before the shows to sit by the beach and spend some pesos on fantastic seafood. ¡Muy bueno!
