phat strad


Unique, ultra-cool, rockin’, elegant, beautiful, smooth, powerful, tres chic, slightly sexy, versatile, musical, visual, and appealing to everyone. Technically speaking, PHAT STRAD is an international cast of classically trained beautiful girls playing futuristic electronic instruments with an industrial strength club groove…or, in the words of those who see their shows, they are simply AMAZING! Created by bandleader and producer Roby Turner, and A-list electric violinist Ivie Etkins, Phat Strad was born in the nightclubs of Las Vegas and currently plays concerts, prestigious events, and corporate shows all over North America. Although best known for their classic rock mashup performance style, Phat Strad’s incredible versatility has filled their show calendar with gala dinners, awards shows, rock concerts, ritzy receptions, premieres, convention general session openers, celebrity parties, grand openings, weddings, exotic locations, and over-the-top extravaganzas. Phat Strad has opened up for and played with John Mayor, Sheryl Crow, Duran Duran, Vanilla Ice & Billy Idol to name a few.

Phat Strad has its own unique musical style. They take a great song, create an original arrangement for string quartet, produce an accompanying club groove in their own studio, add guitar pedals, throw in some incredible chops and performance flair, and BAM! You have the distinctly original musical product that is PHAT STRAD. All delivered by young, beautiful, and talented women!
