Kathy Ruenger, the "Kat" of KatmanDeux, is the lead singer and guitar/bass player. Kathy has an exceptional voice with an incredible vocal range. She can deliver a song with power and conviction. Her heart is always in her songs.
Tim Tesch, the "Man" of KatmanDeux, has built his own cigar box guitar that he calls a "Blues Joe." This soulful instrument consists of five strings with very unique sounds. Tim plays slide guitar on the bottom four strings, and bass with the top string. He has also brilliantly rigged up a drum kit that he plays exclusively with his feet. He has an exceptional voice with an incredible vocal range. With the help of a little velcro, he also plays an impressive harmonica. His multi-talent also incorporates a banjo, electric guitar and fiddle.
Together these "Deux" are TOTALLY SMOKIN!" They have an excellent blend of harmonies and complement each other well. They have an outstanding selection of music that covers a variety of styles from country and bluegrass to rock/pop and oldies. They can play a relaxed/laid back type of set or a more up-tempo rock set. Nothing is sequenced or pre-recorded; everything is performed live. This Duo is a small package that delivers a BIG Band Sound.
