It was a dark and windy night in April when Phat Strad took the stage at the M Resort Las Vegas for a Moroccan-themed party, but nonetheless the girls livened up the night with fiery solos and some good old-fashioned rock and roll! Playing to a crowd of hundreds gathered around the M Resort’s outdoor pool area, the electric strings grabbed the crowd’s attention, even those hanging around the farthest tents and torches. Playing as a sextet and accompanied by percussionists, Phat Strad’s major stage presence turned a cold dark night into a party where everyone was singing along. Peace, love, and Moroccan-roll!
Phat Strad played to a packed house at the LAX nightclub in the Luxor, opening for rapper Vanilla Ice! The girls played a few of their most rockin’ songs, including Chicago’s “25 or 6 to 4,” Pat Benatar’s “Heartbreaker,” and Kansas’s “Carry On Wayward Son.” The crowd was enthusiastic about the electric string instruments and mesmerized by the virtuosic solos – made infinitely cooler by wah pedals and distortion, of course! Dare we say the quartet held the crowd’s attention just as much, if not more, than Mr. Ice himself?
Phat Strad Electric String Quartet played at the Bellagio in Las Vegas September 29 for an evening of luxury fashion and powerful fighters! The event, a benefit for the World Boxing Council Charities, included an auction of 12 unique Hublot watches. The boxing legends themselves – including George Foreman, Cesar Chavez, Mike Tyson, and Sugar Ray Leonard – were summoned to the stage accompanied by the music of Phat Strad!

Phat Strad Electric Strings were guests of honor at the three-day-long Grand Opening Ceremony of the newly renovated Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City! The girls played several shows a day for crowds of partygoers and ended with a show opening for Whoopi Goldberg. The Vegas girls rocked the house in Jersey with tunes ranging from opera to pop to classic rock.
