    A Message from Peter J Newland:
    We're celebrating 55 years of glorious rock and roll: the fabulous players, the fabled concerts, the iconic songs. We will sing, we will dance, we will eat and drink. We will re-kindle fellowship and re-connect with friends and family. We will celebrate the living and raise a fond toast to those who have rocked and gone before us.

    I turn 75 two days before the concert, and this show will be my birthday celebration. It is quite fitting that the event will be held at Pulaski Park which is the site of a string of historic FAT concerts throughout the 70’s and 80’s. There is a big pavilion there so we will party shine or rain. Peter J. Newland, Guy DeVito, Jim K, and William Benjamin of the original FAT will be there. Cliff Goodwin from Joe Cocker’s band will be our special guest!

About FAT


Peter Newland founded the rock band FAT in 1968. A Northeast favorite, FAT has played with Grand Funk Railroad, Little Richard, Bonnie and Delaney, Freddie King, Muddy Waters and Robin Trower. With the success of their debut, self-titled RCA album, “FAT,” the boys performed several times alongside the original Allman Brothers with Duane Allman and Barry Oakley.

Subsequent to their debut album release by RCA in 1970, the group performed at Madison Square Garden, The Capital Theatres and the Strawberry Fields Festival to name a few. The band also formed an Indie label, Dream Merchant Records, and produced their second album, “Footloose.”

Working with producers Mick Ronson (David Bowie, Bob Dylan) and Murray Krugman (Blue Oyster Cult) FAT recorded their final album for Atlantic Records with producer Felix Pappalardi (Cream, Mountain) at Criteria Studios in Miami and were personally signed to the Atlantic label by record-industry legend, Ahmet Ertegun.
