Voodoo Kittens Road Trippin Blues
The Voodoo Kittens offer a special breed of afternoon blues entertainment. We start with the old masters and end up with contemporary blues. Along the way, the Kittens keep it real by throwing in musical styles which are offshoots of blues or were heavily influenced by and/or blended with blues to produce new sounds: rockabilly, R&B, early soul, country, jazz, zydeco, Cajun, swamp pop, and anything else that might temporarily sway our feline senses.
Expect it all: entries from Walter Trout and Big Mama Thornton to Ray Charles and BB King, with side dishes by the likes of the Pine Leaf Boys, Sam Cooke, and George Jones. For dessert–well, what is sweeter than their bad selves, the delightful Miss Katnip and Stray Cat? Tune in for a heapin’ helpin’ of the best of the blues, hosted by the sleekest, hippest purr-fect beings this side of the globe.
Music is the soul of the world. From the first time as a young child when I heard Rock Around the Clock by Bill Haley and the Comets on my suitcase record player I was hooked. I have been listening to music ever since and it is my goal to bring to you some of the best music I can find. I have been involved with KKFI for several years as an Active Member and former Board Member. I am a member of the Kansas City Blues Society and served as a Board Member from November 1999 to November 2003 and November 2004 to November 2005.
The old Stray Cat, aka LaDonna Sanders, is a decade and more older than Katnip but the Voodoo Kittens have the same thing in mind--bringing you great music. I am rural America born and bred, and in grade school I got hooked on Chantilly Lace by the Big Bopper and Hounddog by Elvis. How lucky am I that it wasn't the Carpenters or Michael Bolton.
