Four decades is a lot of time for any friendship to endure. A lot of marriages don't last that long. The Old Blues Kats have been making their way through swampy blues for the better part of four decades. Starting to play music together when they were young and full of vim & vigor, they are still at it, and still have the vim & the vigor, even if their hair has started to lighten. It gives them more authenticity, more grit, and that's what blues is all about. The dirty realism that life is hard but if you can sing about it, you feel better.
They will be playing at Portland House of Music on December 15th with Blues Prophets and the Outerspace Band.
