The Grey Cats: Saturday 28th March 2015

The Grey Cats
Saturday 28th March 2015
9pm (free entry)

Punk / Post Punk / Soul / Ska

The Grey Cats are a 7-piece band from South East London. they have a wide repertoire, including songs from the 60’s to the present day.

They first came together in late 2006, collectively inspired by the idea of playing their own brand of favoured rock / classic soul, influenced in music, and in mind by, amongst others, The Clash and the Late Great Joe Strummer.

Their Brass led sound – provided by ‘The Brass Monkeys’ – is distinctive, and they mix covers with their own material. They’re more than happy to take up any suggestions for numbers they should cover and whenever invited to play they always try and fit in a couple of numbers requested by their hosts!

Joe Strummer felt that one of his greatest achievements was building bonfires around which people would gather, exchange views, make friends and enjoy life. The Grey Cats like to do the same – although they don’t actually go around lighting bonfires when they play – it’s a metaphor!
