The Black Kat Boppers will be raising the roof at Jump Jive and Shout with a rip roaring live show.
From Southampton The Black Kat Boppers are four fellas who love to play hard boppin’, jump up, rockin’ blues, dance music. Influences include early rhythm & blues, jump & jive, ska, and doo-wop. Collectively, when all brought together, The Black Kat Boppers sound is authentic, raw, sincere and unique.
The Black Kat Boppers have stormed Glastonbury, Port Eliot, Bestival and Hyde Park (with Blur and The Specials).
They’ve rocked the Notting Hill Carnival, Rockabilly Rave and Latitude, not to mention performing a memorable set with Florence and The Machine at Bob Geldof’s 60th birthday party. They’ve even been joined on stage by Damon Albarn as well as working with him in the studio and have regularly had Clash legend Paul Simonon playing with the band.
Their latest recording “Boppin' Atcha” makes it clear that the Black Kat Boppers mean business and are hear to stay. Club legend and musician Gaz Mayall declared “I’ve seen hundreds of rock n roll bands and The Black Kat Boppers are right at the very top“.
“With The Black Kat Boppers you get to immerse yourselves in that rockin’ feelin’. Think of us as ‘rockin the blues’ if you must, cos that’s the way we roll!” – Roy Phillips - vocals.
Plus dj Jeniffer Jackson spinning some of the very best in pulsating energy driven doo wop, jump jive, boogie woogie, rhythm and blues and blues shouters.
Always a great night out at Jump Jive and Shout on the second Saturday of the month.
Smart dress, or retro, vintage, glamour, forties, fifties and sixties appreciated.
