Rockin' Rudy's

Fat Larry's Band was formed in Philadelphia in 1976 and fronted by drummer and vocalist Fat Larry James who also played drums in the iconic Philly soul bands The Delfonics and Blue Magic. Over the course of ten years, the group released nine albums and scored big with memorable hits such as "Act Like You Know," "Zoom" and "Lookin' For Love." The band did particularly well in the UK where "Zoom" reached number 2 on the UK singles chart in 1982. They also scored big in the UK with the hits "Center City," "Boogie Town" and "Looking For Love" - songs that attracted a large audience of funk and disco music fans around the globe. Unfortunately, the band folded in 1987 after the premature death of Fat Larry James from a heart attack at the age of 38. The most recent incarnation of the band includes horn man and original founding member Jimmy Lee, original vocalist Art Austin who has been with the band since 1979, and vocalists Dr. Salaam Love and Carl Gray. Recently, the band covered Bobby Womack's 1972 hit "I Can Understand It" and it became one of the stand-out tracks for their critically acclaimed "Memories" album. Recently, while working with legendary Philly soul music producer Butch Ingram, the band reworked the track, utilizing some additional musical performances and backing vocals, and remixed it into a more dynamic version for radio - and so, the resurgence of Fat Larry's Band rolls on
