About Pat Patrick Band & Orchestra


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.

Performances for friends in Nashville soon led to bookings in Louisville and Memphis, and before long Patrick found himself being asked to play for social events and weddings all over the country. During this time the band focused on playing rock hits of the 70's. Then in 1978, Patrick increased the size of his band yet again, adding four horns at the request of a client. The band was now able to play Big Band, Jazz and Swing in addition to Rock and Pop.

Over the course of forty-five years and innumerable performances, the band evolved from a four-piece combo into today's Pat Patrick Band and Orchestra. With the diversity to perform as a 5-piece combo or a 23-piece orchestra, the PPB has developed a reputation as one of the most energetic party bands around. The band is comprised of Nashville's top studio musicians and is led by the only band leader in the country who has earned more than 30 platinum records. Reminiscent of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman and Francis Craig, Pat Patrick brings the Big Band and Swing era to life, while continuing to play a diverse repertoire of Rock 'N' Roll, Soul, Pop and R&B.

News & Reviews

Ballet Ball from The Tennessean
There was a lot of energy at Ballet Ball. Perhaps the 400 people who turned out were curious to check out one of Nashville's newer venues, the Hutton Hotel. The night began with guests being directed up the lobby staircase to a landing and then into an elevator that opened into a long rectangular lobby for cocktails. After a spell, everyone filtered past a sea of orchids into the ballroom for dinner. Catching their eyes right away was an Art Deco style backdrop behind the band on the stage.

20 Questions For Pat Patrick from Nashville Lifestyles
A lot of people like to think they’re the life of the party, but at innumerable top-dollar galas, events, and corporate functions around the country, native Nashvillian Pat Patrick actually is. A consummate professional musician since the age of 15, Pat’s been composing, recording, and working the party circuit (look for him at this month’s Ballet Ball) for some 45 years. We caught up with the inveterate bandleader just as the Nashville social season is starting to kick into gear, and asked him, among other things, why there’s always at least one person at every wedding who thinks they can do a better job on the mic.

Hit That Floor Hard! from The Tennessean
Harmony Award recipients Rascal Flatts set a magical tone for the evening, and Pat Patrick and his fabulous orchestra kicked it up a notch. People were there to dance. Just ask John Seigenthaler who said he “wasn’t looking for a waltz or slow dance”-he wanted to hit that floor hard!
