So we said goodbye to a hugely successful 2016 and welcomed in what promises to be a great 2017 for us Cats at one of our regular haunts, Denton Golf Club. It is always a very welcoming venue for us this one and we have become quite a favourite of theirs over the last few years – so much so that they have already secured our services for next New Year’s Eve as well. Hoorah!
January and February are a traditionally busy time regarding enquiries for us and this year is no exception as dates are already being snapped up. If you are thinking about booking us for your wedding, party, or function, it is best advised to do it as early as you can to avoid disappointment. Also, as our reputation continues to grow, we do get quite a lot of re-bookings for annual functions as people/companies/businesses trust us and know that we always deliver a top show, so every year the diary gets topped up that little bit more!
We often get asked by many people where they can come and see us. The bulk of our work is mainly private functions but we do pop up in public venues every once in while. If anyone out there would like a list of our public dates just drop us an email and we will happily send you a list, might be worth keeping an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages too as sometimes we step into last minute cancellations for other bands.
Our regular public gigs tend to be at Hogan’s of Hale and Granvilles Brasserie in Stone, we play there a several times a year. We are also currently working on getting on at a venue in Knutsford too.
So this year has already seen us tweak our set-list with some new tunes, which are already turning dance floors into a right good bop-fest! As always we put our very unique Cat twist on them to keep both ourselves and our audiences on their toes. We’ve had to retire/rest a couple of trusty old servants that served us well last year but there’s nothing like putting some fresh floor-fillers in, especially with all the re-bookings we do.
Last weekend saw us do our first wedding of the year at the Belle Epoque in Knutsford. Lovely venue to play this with the most helpful staff you could wish for. The night was an absolute rip-snorter, the floor was buzzing from the first dance right until the last notes of our encore. Punita and Phil, our bride and groom, were totally made up with us and we got some heart warming comments from their family and friends. They were definitely one of those audiences you wish you could just scoop up and take everywhere with you!
2017 is already shaping up to be a belter – it’s only January, bring it on! Thanks to everybody who follows and books us for your continued support – and remember kids – CAT is where it’s AT !
