Pit er Pat

Pit er Pat is a female fronted indie/Nu Jazz group from Chicago. They consist of Fay Davis-Jeffers on keyboard and vocals, Rob Doran on bass, and Butchy Fuego on drums. Their sound is very atmospheric and has a dark ambiance that is similar to other instrumental avant-garde groups in the indie genre. The vocals offered by Fay give the band a well rounded sound like that of another female fronted indie band, the Fiery Furnaces, whom Pit er Pat toured with in the winter of 2007.

In 2004, Pit er Pat performed on the second volume of the _Chicago_IL_09.13.2004 DVD series. On July 7, 2007 Butchy Fuego participated in the Yamantaka Eye (Boredoms) lead drum collaboration/concert 77 Boadrum at Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park in Brooklyn, New York.

On their 2007 Covers EP, Pit er Pat had guest instrumentalist add some woodwind and brass to their sound. Billy Blaze played flute and tenor saxophone, and Nick Broste (Mucca Pazza) played trombone.


Pit er Pat has released music in the United States under the Thrill Jockey and BAROS records, and in Japan through the Headz label.
