Fat Pappy was formed in the Spring of 2000 and began gigging in October of 2000.

Believe it or not we are all still the original members.

Fat Pappy’s sound is an upbeat mix of rock, funk, and blues. Together since 2000, the band is based in Denver and performs throughout the Denver metro and Northern Colorado area. Fat Pappy’s unique groovy sound proves to be one thing you "can get out on the farm."
