The Flaming Mudcats.
“Blues sunny side up, over easy, spicy or funky …. it’s all on the menu with these guys.”
Now in their eleventh 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 three successful albums. “Cut Loose,” their latest, has been particularly well received both here and overseas.
The band is fronted by Craig Bracken on vocals and harmonica along with guitarist Doug Bygrave, while bassist Johnny Yu and drummer Ian Thomson form the rhythm section.
