The Kat Kings

The Kat Kings play red hot music and keep that flame burning bright.

They have been playing their unique style of Roots music since the 2011 debut of The Winning Hand.  Their 2016 follow up, Swingin’ in the Swamp carried on with that formula.

They fuse Blues, Rock and Roll, Soul and Rockabilly to create The Billy Bop Blues.

The Kat Kings” music has been played all over the world. They have also played all over the country too. They are eager to play for new audiences wherever they may be.

Album: Swingin’ In The Swamp
Release Date: June 10, 2016
Genre: Americana

Toronto, ON based Americana/ roots band, The Kat Kings released their sophomore album entitled Swingin’ in the Swamp on June 10, 2016, which offers up thirteen full length “good, old fashioned roots and rock ‘n’ roll” tunes.

The album starts with “When I Say Jump” which will definitely have you jumping out of your seat, and it certainly lives up to the nickname, “Bluesabilly” that some use to describe The Kat Kings sound. As the album plays on, the listener is presented with more of the same style, such as “Poppin’ at Party Time”, “Ridin’ in Style” and “Baby You Can’t Drink”.

I have to admit, as much as I enjoyed the tracks listed above, the song that has been stuck in my head since listening is the ballad, “I’m Just a Shadow” which is about love lost, and it is the kind of song that tells a story, and that many people will be able to relate to.

Lead vocalist, and guitarist Kevin McQuade certainly has what it takes and has created a unique listening experience that I would recommend to any fans of the genre, or if you’re just on the lookout for something new.
