No well-trodden paths or grey covers with Black Cat Biscuit, but a surprising, at times racy cocktail of fresh songs marinated in a ‘special gumbo hot sauce’ brought to you by five passionate musicians! Yasser (Six-pack, Wood & Roses) is your host with an alcohol-drenched blues voice who nevertheless leads his swinging guitar and the rest of the band with a steady hand. Patrick ‘P.Daddy Alley’ Indestege (Big Mama’s Kitchen, Rhythm Bombs, Elmore D, Ale & Alley) on double bass forms with Jeffrey Gijbels (Belgium’s Got Talent, Festeyn) on drums a familiar rhythm section that swings like a tick! Stanley Patty (Doctor Rhythm, Phil Bee and the Buzztones, Rhythm Bombs, The Loveveins) is one of the most appreciated blues guitarists in the Benelux, his sound is a mix of his examples Magic Sam, Albert Collins and Johnny Guitar Watson, mixed with his own typical feeling and technique. Mr Mark Sepanski (the Monday Lovers, Six-pack) blows his soul out of his body and converts the last doubters to Bluesdom. Black Cat Biscuit plays a mesmerising gig you can’t miss, after this nothing will ever be the same again! Come and see us! Black Cat 1″>released a first album on February 22, 2019 and achieved 4th place at the European Blues Challenge 2019 in Ponta Delgada, the Azores.

These five young musicians are in complete agreement about their musical style: nowhere can you express so much emotion as in the blues. And that is what they do. Time after time, the audience is amazed by what this band is able to put into their music, and how they are able to convey this to the music lovers in the audience. They know how to give great performances of old and well-known blues classics, and their beautiful own songs fit in seamlessly. The band effortlessly succeeds in drawing a younger audience into their enthusiastic and energetic stage presence. This band is a must for lovers of blues, jazz and funk. They won the Dutch Blues Challenge 2019 and will represent the Netherlands at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in January 2020. At the end of December 2017, the band released their first CD in the old (6-man) formation: “A Tribute To The Masters Of The Blues”.
