The Screamin' Bluecats
The Screamin’ Bluecats rockin’ out of Galway are one of Ireland hardest working rockabilly bands. This dynamic and racious trio set out to generate the authentic sound of the 1950’s Rockabilly and Rock’n’Roll
All music from before 1959 is their Cat call …. using vintage instruments and staying through to the original arrangement close your eyes and you could be in 1950’s.
Formed 1997 the Cats consist of
Shiney Jimmy Fingers – Hootin’ and a Hollerin’ Guitars and Harp
Johnny The Engine – Double Bass Hollerin’ and a Hootin’
Jimmy Cubbard – Pots and Pans and a Holleran’
Doing their mixture or covers and originals The Screamin’ Bluecats live set tips it’s hat to artists such as Elvis, Eddy Couchran, Gene Vincent as well as Link Wray and Warren Smith Billy Lee Rielly and Johnny Cash Chuck Berry among others. The Cats have one eye on skill and the other on fun and will have you tapping you toes grinning and dancing before you know it , remember if you can’t find a partner use a wooden chair.
