How LL & the FC’s got started may sound a bit cliché but true. One afternoon George and Nita received a request for an ensemble rooted in mainstream blues, pop and rock - a different genre from their traditional jazz, Latin, and popular songbook they perform as "Nita Hamilton and the George Glover Trio". George and Nita looked at each other with the same thought in mind, “Count us in and we’ll be getting back to you with the name of the band”.
It was time to make a few calls and get the old band back together, a thought that’s been gabbed about for years. The first call was easy and most important, Mr. Mark Allen. George worked with the guitarist and vocalist 35 years ago performing up and down the West Coast. Actually it was Mr. Allen who introduced his beautiful sister Nita to George and the rest became history. Happy to say, Mark shared the same enthusiasm with the idea of getting back together.
Though our bassist Mike Hallesy is not an original member of the band of old he is a veteran player and has been performing jazz and pop gigs with George and Nita for 25 + years. Mike's bass playing is in high demand and he can be seen performing in many different venues including events with pianist Larry Vuckavich. The pulse of the band is generated by East Bay best drummers including George & Nita's son, Sean Glover making LL&TFC's a true family affair!
Being the founding father and keyboardist of the all new Fat Cats, George Glover rounds out the band in a big way. Not a hard thing for him to do. One, he's an extremely versatile keyboardist and two, he stands 6'5" and weighs in at 2++ lbs.!
And for Lady Luck, that's the easiest call of all, Miss Nita Hamilton. With her beautiful presence and voice, luck is absolutely on the Fat Cats side!.
