Black Kat Boppers
It’s the most widely known fact in the universe … old skool rockin roll will never die! These local guys hailing from South Coast Water Way in Southampton are here to prove it. Get your blue suede shoes ready on Friday 3rd August 2018 for a hot boppin, groovin’ 4 piece group playing rockin, roots music with a guitar, double bass & stand up drums. We love to mix in something unique for a summer festival, and these guys have talented musicians tattooed on them where it hurts. It’s a raw sound, it’s fun, it’s real!
Black Kat Boppers are:
Roy Phillips – Vocals
Luca Scaggiante – Guitar & Vocals
Colin Owens – Drums & Vocals
Dylan Clarke – Stand Up Bass & Vocals
Black Kat Boppers formed In Dec 2009 after some chance meetings, speculative phone calls and a little bit of fate. A shared love for rockin’ roots music was clear and they haven’t looked back since. There’s been triumphant performances at Glastonbury, Port Eliot, Bestival & Hyde Park (with Blur & The Specials). They’ve rocked Notting Hill Carnival, Rockabilly Rave & Latitude, not to mention performing a memorable set with Florence and The Machine at Bob Geldof’s 60th birthday party. They’ve 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. Paul Simonon, who has been a great support to them, also appears on their debut album “Boppin Atcha” and has done the sleeve artwork. The album is released on Foot Tapping records in September 2013.
