One of the most popular bands to play the Best Video Performance Space, the Big Fat Combo return on Thursday, Feb. 13. The music starts at 8 PM and the cover is $5.
The Big Fat Combo hail from Cheshire and offer their own, wry, well-crafted take on rock ‘n’ roll. The quartet is a classic rockabilly group: upright bass and drums, rhythm and lead guitar. Led by singer Tom Hearn, the Big Fat Combo not only play their original tunes (“Tag Sale,” “Banned by Sam the Clam’s” and “Chicks Dig it,” among others) but also riff on classic rock ‘n’ roll, garage rock, punk, country and even some easy listening chestnuts (“Que Sera Sera,” “It was a Very Good Year”) that they make fully their own.
The Big Fat Combo released their first compact disc, “Chicks Dig it,” in 2010. Watch them perform the title song at the Performance Space in December, 2012 in a video by Dave Kelsey:
