Pat Fitzgerald

Relaxing by the shed

Hobo Pat

Pat Fitzgerald was born the son of an iceman in Fairbanks, Alaska. His mom's father played mandolin and his dad played saxophone in dance bands and on radio in Indiana in the 1920’s and both parents encouraged his early interest in music. He started playing drums at age thirteen and guitar at sixteen, inspired by bands like The Standells and The Yardbirds, and has been a part of many Alaskan bands since then, most notably The Flyers, Howling Dog house band from the mid 80's to the mid-90's playing a healthy dose of “roots rock” and Pat's own originals.

These bands have opened for such acts as John Hammond, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Elvin Bishop, The Greg Allman Band and The Youngbloods. As a drummer he has played with the seminal Fairbanks band the Glass Bead Game, backed Freddie Fender and toured with Al Rapone & The Zydeco Express from Louisiana and The Grant Dermody Band from Seattle.

As a solo artist and with Robin Dale Ford, he has been honored to open for Allison Krauss, Peter Mulvey, Iris Dement, Loudon Wainwright, Tom Russell and Karen Savoca & Pete Heitzman. Pat has released three recordings, “Soul on Fire,” “Last Frontier Sessions” and his CD “Wild Harvest.” on 10th Planet Records.

As co-owner of 10th Planet Recording, Pat has recorded and mixed over 100 CD's of fine Alaskan music.
