It took us 15 years to be sure that we were absolutely ready to send a new Christmas album out to the world.
It started with us developing a show that we would perform at a well-known theme park in Orange County. After 34 performances and trying this out in front of thousands over the course of 9 weeks, we felt it was time to take it into the studio. But we knew we had to raise the bar for ourselves as we approached this album. After all, there's no turning back once you've released your first Christmas Album. It's out there forever.
Our vision included bringing together many of our favorite voices and friends on one album that represents the music of today. Not the music you listen to on the radio, but the music that plays in the clubs, on tours, theaters, or even some of the best unknown places in any city. Each of our guest singers, to us, are the true voices and faces of live music today.
Phat Cat Swinger has certainly come a long way from being the band that started in a desert garage, in 2002 with just an alto sax, bari sax and drummer playing and experimenting with swing music. But one thing remains... the vision to have fun and create fun music that will make you smile.
Let us show you. Sit back and enjoy the next 45 minutes of how Phat Cat Swinger does Christmas.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
~Marco Palos and all of Phat Cat Swinger
