The Flaming Mudcats.
“Blues sunny side up, over easy, spicy or funky …. it’s all on the menu with these guys.”
Now in their twelfth year, The Flaming Mudcats are regarded among the country’s premier Rhythm and Blues acts. They have performed in festivals and clubs around New Zealand as well as Australia, the Pacific Islands and the USA.
Their energetic show blends original and cover material drawn from their eclectic influences. You can dance your socks off to everything from butt shaking belters to soulful grinders.
The “Mudcats” have released four successful albums. “Forever And A Day” their latest, has been particularly well received both here and overseas.
The band is fronted by vocalist Craig Bracken on harmonica and tenor sax, along with guitar slinger Doug Bygrave. Drummer Ian Thomson and on bass Paul Merriott or Pete Parnham form the tight, driving rhythm section.
