Cats With Class won the Spring 2014 Los Angeles Battle of the Bands competition, beating out five heavy metal and shredder bands. This is a fabulous band of extremely talented musicians from all walks of life as well as wildly divergent cultural roots. All fused together into a Jazz/Rock Swing – Something new! Cats with Class features their unique original material that speaks of today's situation, with a few smokin' traditional cover tunes sprinkled in when and where they belong, all with the unique Cats style and arrangement.
The Cats band members musical credentials are impeccable each individually. Collectively, their talents cover the broad range necessary today to make it to the top. This band has both spunk and style, with a whole lot of class thrown in. This is a band that has grown from quite humble roots two years ago as the "Craig's List All Stars" into one of the hottest new talents already on many people's radar. Cats With Class speaks to all of us about our community, not about our separations. Their powerful lyrics shout out about our common concerns, and bring light to our collective mistakes we need to pay particular attention to.
