About Band

Eversince their first public performance at a defunct bus interchange in 2004, Fatskunks has gone on to play at much bigger events and participated in band competitions around Singapore. One of their biggest achievements is coming in 2nd placing in the very much publicised PowerJam 06 and also playing alongside regional bands in a 3 day music festival held at Fort Canning in June 06. Their most recent achievement was coming in 2nd at a national and very much publicised and televised band competition called Anugerah Band. Battled against more than 160 bands all the way through to the finals and has since gone on for various performing opportunities most notably, a solo concert held in conjunction with Pesta Raya at Esplanade's Recital Studio.

Fatskunks has been known to get the crowd groovin' and movin' to both the originals and covers that they dish out during live performances. They are also hoping to encounter the occasional nudity in the crowd.

Their music has been described as a tasteful and eclectic mix of Latin, Reggae, Rock and Funk. Over the recent years, their musical direction has seen a much more diverse mix and other styles such as RnB, Rock, Ska has been fused into their originals; whilst maintaining that signature Fatskunks sound. The band's musical influences span many different artistes from all around the world. Santana being the primary influence, they also drew inspiration from legendary bands like Bob Marley and the Wailers, Dave Matthews Band, Paul Simon, Los Lonely Boys and also Singapore bands such as Dancing Nancies and Bushmen.

As of print date, Fatskunks has written 13 original songs of which 5 were selected to be recorded for their EP/mini album.

The band is currently wrapping up the recording and is scheduled to release it in June 09.
