Artist Spotlight: Fatty Boomba
Don’t be fooled by the name.... Fatty Boomba is a band that’s ‘Fat’ in sound and full of rhythm; 'Boomba!”. The brain-child of Melbourne, Australia’s own Peter Josef Hofbauer (PJ), Fatty Boomba is straight out feel good music with the intention of getting stuck in you head for days!
Think of a Folk/ Pop mix between Ben Folds, Maroon 5 with a Cat Stevens edge, and somewhere in that musical kaleidoscope you will find the sound that is uniquely Fatty Boomba.
Fatty Boomba isn’t a band that follows trends or agendas. Rather, it has a simple criterion for selection; 'If it’s cool, we’re gonna play it’.
After gaining serious attention, and landing squarely on the industries-radar, by placing among the top 10 in the International Song-writing Competition (over 16,000 entries), Fatty Boomba continued their impressive momentum by releasing their debut single ‘It’s the Life’. Having gained play from thousands of international stations. Fatty Boomba launched their new single on The Kyle & Jackie O Show to thousands of listeners across the country.
In December 2016 the band managed to pick up major play on hundreds of commercial, community and alternative networks nationally, which prompted an invite from the Executive Producer of Channel 7 to perform the single live across the country on The Morning Show. In February 2017 the band dropped into Channel 10 for a live performance; and will continue reaching out to new listeners through March/ April of 2018, along with the upcoming release of their full EP titled Girls Girls Girls!
