Fat Moth presents a one-time performance of music, poetry, visual projections and visual art.


Fat Moth in the Garden will be a one-time performance consisting of the music of Fat Moth, as well as storytelling/spoken-word poetry, soundscapes both by members of Fat Moth and collaborators outside of the band, an earth art installation by visual artist Emma Lee Fleury and environmentally focused visual projections by local documentary filmmaker Stacey Koudys.

Fat Moth is based in St. Catharines, Ontario and is comprised of an expanding roster of Niagara/Toronto based musicians. Debuting in March, 2017, Fat Moth has developed a reputation for creating high energy performances. Fat Moth’s soaring guitar riffs, three-part vocal harmonies and hypnotic rhythm section creates a unique blend of alternative rock, psych, funk and folk that always gets the crowd dancing.

In August of 2017, Fat Moth finished recording their debut album at WOW! Recording Studio & Creative Music Space with producer Joe Lapinski. The band is spreading its wings across Ontario for the summer of 2018.
