The Blues Award-winning Rick Estrin ranks among the very best harp players, singers and songwriters in the blues world today. His work on the reeds is deep in the tradition of harmonica masters Sonny Boy Williamson II and Little Walter Jacobs, while at the same time pushing that tradition forward. His Blues cohorts, The Nightcats, are a crowd-pleasing crew that is guaranteed to bring a show-stopping event of dancing, shouting, laughing and cheering. For decades, their audiences have been forever enjoying some of the best live music they’ve ever heard. The stage is where Estrin turns up the volume to “Kick Maximum Ass”. It's a live audience that trips the switch for these world-class musicians that promise an original, witty and wry simmering Blues stew that is spiced up with a hot funky edge. Hipster style, street-wise vocals and the punch of a pro boxer are his calling cards, All together and as a unit, this one of the tightest and most original bands in any genre.
