FAT – Fabulous Austrian Trio, the Power Trio with Alex Machacek on guitar, Raphael Preuschl on bass and Herbert Pirker on drums is presenting their new album “#AWESOME” for the first time in Europe. Isn’t that #awesome?
FAT, short for Fabulous Austrian Trio, came together in 2004 just before bandleader, Alex Machacek relocated from Vienna, Austria to Los Angeles. Before they established the band FAT, the trios first studio recordings appeared on Machack’s US debut album „[sic]“, which featured Terry Bozzio. John McLaughlin reaction to this album was: „ Alex Machack’s music starts where other music ends.” Over the years the band commuted between LA and Vienna for recordings, rehearsals and concerts. 2015 they were at the BMW World Jazz Awards, grabbed the 2nd place and released their album „Living the Dream“. 2016 their concerts at Jazzfestival Leibnitz and Bayrischer Rundfunk were broadcasted by bavarian and austrian radiostations. 2017 FAT was invited to the „Cruise to the Edge“ and played at the legendary Baked Potato in LA. The 3rd album „#AWESOME” is already in the making and will be released in 2018.
