Join us for a taste of Wine, Food, & Music with Phatt City outside on the Plaza!

Start the night off with free Wine & Beer Tastings from NC Breweries & Wineries (A cash bar will open at intermission) – Followed with Appetizers & a Gourmet Boxed Dinner from the Center Bistro – All while enjoying the fun beach tunes of local favorite, Phatt City. This event will take place on the Yadkin Cultural Center’s plaza with seating available inside and outside the center.

This event is a fundraiser to support the Stephen G. Lyons Scholarships that are awarded annually to graduating high school seniors in Yadkin County.

Phatt City is the name of a band originally founded in 1972, by a group of regional band directors. The name came from a saying that describes a big, “fat” sound. The spelling was a play on words that was common in that era. Phatt City’s original influences came from groups like Chicago and Earth, Wind, & Fire. Phatt City plays the best of beach music, R&B, Motown, and dance music.
The band consists of 9 members, including a full horn section of Trumpet, Tenor Sax, Trombone, and Bari-Sax. Along with a rhythm section, there are three lead singers in the group, with one being female.
Phatt City is probably best known for having a great rapport with its audiences. Having fun is contagious, and we love to spread it around!
