The Pat Patrick Band is the most energetic party band around featuring Big Band, Swing, Motown, Oldies, and today's most popular music. Perfect for your party, wedding, corporate event, or fund raiser.
It may be hard to believe, but the origins of the Pat Patrick Band started in 1958, when band leader Pat Patrick picked up the guitar at age eleven. Four years later, Patrick formed his first band and named it the Saturns Combo. Comprised of guitar, bass, drums and sax, they used Patrick's bedroom for rehearsal space. This young band received its start performing for the Hillwood Country Club, Belle Meade Country Club, and various high school dances and fraternity parties all over Nashville.
A few short years later, while attending Vanderbilt University, the Saturns were signed to Polygram Records. This contract allowed the band to grow by one more horn player. Unknown to Patrick at the time, adding band members (and subsequently growing his repertoire) would be a distinguishing characteristic of the Pat Patrick Band. During their agreement with Polygram, the Saturns remade Marvin Gaye's hit "Stubborn Kind of Fellow" and recorded one of Patrick's originals, "You Can Destroy My Mind."
As the band progressed, so did their name. The Saturns turned into the Fabulous Beech Nut Show Band around 1968. This name did not last for long, transforming into the Kracker Jacks Show Band. Even though they were at a loss for a name, Patrick's band was in such great demand that he was able to add three more horn players and one more vocalist. The band continued playing new venues in and around Nashville and for sorority and fraternity parties all over the South.
