Black Cat Blues / Bio

Black Cat hails from Central Pennsylvania and plays a funky mix of blues, R&B, and soulful rock. The band has been together since 2010 and prides itself on a tight, entertaining, but not too serious, musical experience. Black Cat’s song list includes songs you may know, some you may not know, and some that are covered with a lot of our own flavor. We hope you dig it…peace!

Black Cat is

Kevin File- Drums
With more than 20 years of experience as a performing musician throughout the Central Pennsylvania Region Kevin draws on a wide range of musical influences the include The Rolling Stones, Cream, and anything Motown or 70’s funk. His primary influences include Steve Gadd, Clyde Stubblefield, and Buddy Miles.

Tony Lodde – Bass, Vocals
Despite more than 20 years on bass guitar, Tony considers himself a musical late bloomer. His musical interests lie in virtually every genre – Blues, Rock, Classical and Country and Tex-Mex from his time living in Arizona. Tony has played in a number of Central PA bands, including the B-Block Blues Band, Nasty Habits, and Last Train Running.

Rich Zambito – Guitar, Vocals
A fan of the early Stones and Dave Mason, Rich credits Led Zeppelin’s “Since I’ve Been Loving You” with pointing him at the blues and BB King’s “The Thrill Is Gone” with showing him the rest of the way. His guitar shows the influences of Albert Collins, Clapton, and Albert, Freddie, and BB King but he also digs “new blues” guitarists Coco Montoya, Michael Burks, and Tommy Castro. Rich has been playing in bands for more than 30 years.
