Tim Casey And The Bluescats
Tim Casey's music leaks out like smoke from a house on fire. The black puff of a dominant seventh to a red hot minor third thru the roof. This singer/songwriter/guitarist provides a soundtrack to the biggest blues resurgence since the 60s. The Bluescats have made a name for themselves by tapping the primal essence and drama of the music. Perservering beyond the mere three chord progression, this smokin' combo rips through Rockin', Jumpin', Swingin' tunes from the 40s to their latest originals.
The Bluescats cover early jump and swing, rock and roll, Texas and Chicago shuffles, soul classics; even the swampy grooves of New Orleans are in the mix. The band's strength of musicianship draws audiences of all ages to the Bluescats's danceable, three-piece horn section powered sounds that need not be loud to be appreciated.
Having relocated from Los Angeles to the Seattle area in 1997, Tim Casey and the Bluescats play over 150 dates a year at some of the West Coast's premiere events such as Bumbershoot. Stellar performances at music festivals, corporate parties, Pioneer Square, and the region's most prestigious nightclubs have garnered Washington Blues Society nominations for "Best New Band 1998""Best Band 1999, 2001, 2002"..
