...you boys took me back to the days when I used to play with Glenn Miller, but with so much more energy!”

— Ray Anthony - American Bandleader/Songwriter/Actor after a performance at the Playboy Mansion

Our Story

In 2002, Founding members: Marco Palos & Will Pattinson teamed up to find a sound that had gone missing from the airwaves. Booming toms, jumpin’ rhythms and a powerful horn section were all the perfect ingredients for this creation. It became known as, “Phat Cat Swinger,” a West Coast "little-big" band that specializes in high-energy music with that classic Hollywood touch.

 Phat Cat Swinger continues to tour the United States and perform a variety of Los Angeles hot-spots, including festivals at the happiest place on earth! 
Hollywood loves Phat Cat Swinger and featured them in videos with Christina Aguilera (Candyman), The Jonas Brothers (Love Bug) and Irish rock band, Snow Patrol (In The End).  They were even selected  among California's best Big Bands by JJ Abrams to perform for his company, Bad Robot Productions. 

The band's ingenious selection of songs range from Original music to covers all inspired from Sinatra to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy while even visiting songs by Elton John and more. No matter what this band plays, you’ll be smiling almost instantly.
