Hot Boppin, Groovin’ 4 piece group playing Rockin, Roots Music with a Guitar, Double Bass & Stand Up Drums.

 

 

 

Black Kat Boppers formed after some chance meetings, speculative phone calls and a little bit of fate.  A shared love for rockin’ roots music was clear and they haven’t looked back since.  There’s been triumphant performances at Glastonbury many times, Port Eliot, Bestival & Hyde Park (with Blur & The Specials).  They’ve rocked Notting Hill Carnival, Rockabilly Rave Latitude & Viva Las Vegas, not to mention performing a memorable set with Florence and The Machine at Bob Geldof’s 60th birthday party.  They’ve been joined on stage by Damon Albarn as well as working with him in the studio and have regularly had Clash legend Paul Simonon playing with the band.  Paul Simonon, who has been a great support to them, also appears on their debut album “Boppin Atcha” and has done the sleeve artwork.

The much awaited new album, simply “Black Kat Boppers” was released in 2018.

Right across the board people seem to be lovin’ it – young, old, stupid, clever, hippies, punks, students, drop outs, mums, dads, drunks, weirdos, ravers, strippers, rockers, mods…  “Everybody loves that raw sound!!!

Gaz Mayall declared…
I’ve seen hundreds of rock n roll bands and The Black Kat Boppers are right at the very top!!“.

When I first saw The Black Kat Boppers I was sat on a hill at a festival and could hear this music in a tent that literally grabbed me by the lapels and dragged me in” – Paul Simonon (The Clash/Gorillaz)

Wow those boys can really play” – Damon Albarn (Blur/Gorillaz)

Really rebel rousing music” – Bono

Surrey’s Premier High Energy Blues Band !

 

The Bluescasters are the brainchild of two old friends who both share a love of the Blues and wanted to create a band between them who could play the blues straight from the heart. Having played around the country in many bands alongside some of the blues greats for more years than they care to remember, it was decided to gather some especially talented friends and form “The Bluescasters” to play some powerful high energy music.
The idea was to form a three-piece and bring in fellow band members to gigs as and when their own busy gigging schedule allowed. This gives the band a unique revolving cast of personnel to always deliver a dynamic fresh set wherever they play.
