More Fatter
More Fatter
More Fatter is a funk fusion band hailing from Belmont, California in the San Francisco Bay Area. With spacious, brassy dance grooves, lusciously tight choral harmonies, and a fiery live presence, More Fatter has quickly established itself as "San Francisco's newest funk, rock, and jazz fusion experiment" (Bay Bridged).

Guitarist and vocalist, Tommy Economou, founded the band with long-time friend, trombonist, keyboard player, and vocalist Mark Fedronic in 2015. Having both just graduated from college and recently moved back to the Bay Area, Mark and Tommy combined backgrounds in blues, jazz, and years of shared experience singing classically in the Ragazzi Boys Chorus, with the eclectic versatility of jazz-trained bassist, composer, and producer, Gustaf Claesson. Mark’s brother and trumpet player, Theo Fedronic, and drummer Danny Chiapelone added essential missing ingredients to the mix. Bassist Justin Palaad​ completed the group upon Gustaf's departure for the Berklee School of Music in Boston.
More Fatter celebrates the chaotic zone between humanity’s wildest dreams and our everyday realities, driven by a dual mission to both fire up and heal the hearts and souls of listeners. The band taps into Tommy's and Mark's shared choral background, Theo's and Mark's French Caribbean/Hungarian heritage and the melting pot of blues, funk, jazz, rock, hip hop, electronica, and more that has been cooking up in the San Francisco Bay Area for decades. Check out for their debut record - "where are you" - now out on Spotify! As Dave Watts from The Motet said, "These guys brought a burning energy live, and I'm certain they'll be turning heads with their debut." You don't want to miss it.
Mint Julep
Berkeley-based MintJulep formed in early 2016 when Maya Morales (vocals/songwriter) and Tristan Burke (keyboard) met at a UC Berkeley jazz music club and started working on original songs. What started as a fun side project grew into a band when James Sud (bass/production) joined a couple months later, and Matt Fyke (drums) a year after that. The band's extensive influence range from Hiatus Kaiyote to Ella Fitzgerald to Erykah Badu, but Mint Julep is never anything but themselves, with unique musical chemistry, creative future R&B, and dreamy, original indie-pop melodies.
