Wholly Cats Band

Welcome to our site!

Whether it’s a festival or a private party, we love to perform rock songs anywhere. Each of our band members is very enthusiastic about music and we carry it in our heart. We have come a long way. The starting wasn’t easy for us. There were disappointments, failures and long waits on our journey. But we never gave up. We stuck together as a team and supported each other. We believe it’s the team spirit that has brought us to the position we are in now.

It was a quiet evening in a bar where we sat and discussed casually about forming a rock band. We were discussing about the recording studios when we start discussing things. That casual conversation turned into reality in only 7 days time. We all agreed on the general terms and conditions of the band and started practicing. We had two great songwriters in our team and so we produced some wonderful music. At the beginning, we used to play in night clubs only. We played our own songs, as well as, the famous songs.

One day we were performing at a night club in New Jersey and a guy came to us and handed over his visiting card. That guy had invited us to his recording studio the next day. After we went there, he listened to our songs, liked them and gave us our first recording contract. This was the turning point of our band’s success.

Now we have a total of 8 albums and we are working on our 9th album. It’s such an amazing feeling when we see our songs are being played at night clubs. People sing along and dance to our tunes. There is nothing so fulfilling as making your audiences happy with your performance.

ANNOUNCEMENT: We've recently closed a sponsorship with a company, which is a representative of the insinkerator badger 5 in our city. It's a very important deal for us.

Flight Brigade aus UK mit Debütalbum “Our Friends Our Enemies” (VÖ 14. Oktober) und Video zu “Hurricane Season“

Fligth Brigade ist mehr als eine Band, Flight Brigade ist eine siebenköpfige Familie. Und das kann man sogar wortwörtlich nehmen, denn Ollie und Mirian sind verheiratet. Dorry widerum ist die Schwester von Mirian und das Trio wuchs gemeinsam auf. Ihre Eltern waren beste Freunde und lebten in einer Hippiekommune n Hampshire. Die anderen vier Bandmitglieder sind auch schon seit ihrer Kidheit befreundet und wuchsen ganz in der Nähe auf. Genau das macht ihre Musik so besonders und einzigartig. Jedes Lied erzählt eine epische Geschichte, für das jedes Mitglied von wesentlicher Bedeutung ist. Und diese spezielle Verbindung ist auch auf der Bühne sehr gut zu sehen.

Vorab gibt es nun das neue Video zur aktuellen Single “Hurricane Season“ hier zu sehen:

STATUS QUO - Abschiedstour OHNE Gitarrist Rick Parfitt!

Das offizielle Statement von Status Quo zum Gesundheitszustand von Rick Parfitt:

PRESS STATEMENT

Rick Parfitt

Status Quo regret to announce that guitarist Rick Parfitt has been ordered to rest for the remainder of the year at the very least following on from his heart attack and associated complications following a Quo show in Turkey on June 14th.

This means, of course, that he will be unable to take part in the forthcoming ‘Last Night Of The Electrics’ European and UK tour which commences in Vienna, Austria on October 12th.

Simon Porter, the band’s manager comments, “Although Rick is recovering well and is now able to lead a relatively normal day to day life, he is far from being fit enough to undertake the rigours of Quo’s touring schedule. Perhaps now is the time to reveal that Rick actually ‘died’ for several minutes directly following his heart attack which resulted in mild cognitive impairments for which he continues to receive neuropsychological support.
His medical team continue to be confident of a full recovery, but Rick’s absolute priorities for the foreseeable future are for his health and wellbeing and to be able to see his eight year old twin children Tommy and Lily grow up.
To this end, Rick may well have performed his last show with Quo, but no final decision will be made until next year. Regardless, it is his wish that the band continue to tour as planned and he will always be a part of Quo’s numerous other off stage activities”.

Rick has given his full blessing for the band to continue to honour their touring schedule in order to not let down the fans. Until the end of 2016, Status Quo will continue to utilise guest musicians. Irish guitarist Richie Malone, who is currently playing with the band, will continue in this role at least until the end of Quo’s European schedule which concludes in Paris on December 4th. Freddie Edwards, son of Quo bass player John 'Rhino' Edwards also stepped in for Rick during some of the Summer shows.

Rick will also use his convalescence period to compose songs for a long overdue solo album which he plans to record early next year. In the meantime, both Rick and the band would like to thank the fans for their continued understanding and support. ... See MoreSee Less
