Fat Freddy’s Drop

Fat Freddy’s Drop is exactly the kind of collection of musically minded reprobates you might stumble across jamming under a bridge on a warm evening in summer, with a swelling crowd sucked into its groove on the cracked pavement… It also happens to be one of of the finest live acts of our generation. 20 years and countless world tours down the line, for this unshakeably chilled New Zealand seven-piece, it’s still all about the jam.

An incredible collage of influences from slamming Detroit techno to the ethereal spiralling of free jazz, Fat Freddy’s is held together by the warmth of New Zealand soul, with a powerful horn section to boot.
A commitment to improvisation means no two shows are alike, and new music blooms before the audience’s very eyes. Full of joy, spontaneity and sheer talent, a Fat Freddy’s session is an unforgettable experience.


"Something like a mixture of Rainbow Serpent, Glastonbury and Burning Man, there was so much happening at The Pleasure Garden."

– Beat Magazine Live Review

"The Pleasure Garden if you will indulge me, is like a trip through the wardrobe to Narnia or similarly down the rabbit hole to Wonderland..."
