Fans Come Together as Phat Cat Swinger Wraps Run At Disney Festival of Holidays

On Friday night, fans crowded in front of the stage at Paradise Bay to watch the final two performances of Phat Cat Swinger of Disney Festival of Holidays. The crowd and the band were both full of energy as the night began, and that did not let down as things continued. Band founder Marco Palos and crooner Mark Kopitzke took that energy to an even higher level as their voices filled the night with holiday classics both new and old. The band and the crowd matched the energy, making for a very magical night.

Phat Cat Swinger performed two sets throughout the night. The first set was at 5:30 PM. It had some classic Christmas songs that have been heard in previous years, a Phat Cat Swinger original, and a new one this year in the form of the Snow Miser/Heat Miser Song from 1974’s The Year Without A Santa Claus. Daps Magic team member Angela was on hand to film the performances and they can be seen below.

They have played regularly at different festivals at the Disneyland Resort, special events, and have toured the world.
