Catfish & the Dogstars / Press

“This unique acoustic/electric fusion arrangement features Eric (Of Eric Lamber and Friends) on lead vocals, acoustic guitar, and mandolin, being backed up by members of a city favorite, Catfish & The Dogstars; .........Mike Morgan on rhythm guitar, Najeeba Syed on electric fiddle, and Collin Nordine on drums.”

“Catfish & the Dogstars is a roots funk jam act from Chicago that’s comprised of a variety of talented musicians. The quintet is starting to make ripples and gain notoriety after winning entry to Whippersnap Music Festival through a “battle of the bands” contest. They’ve also had the luxury of playing as “the Friends” for local guitarist Eric Lambert (Eric Lambert & Friends)... This opportunity has greatly expanded the bands musical depth and cultivated a richer experience to an already dynamic sound. Listening to Catfish & the Dogstars, I immediately felt that this group has spent hours together practicing as each soulfully crafted song transitioned into the next in a seamless barrage of audio delight. ... This is a dynamic ever-evolving band that everyone attending Whippersnap in late July should be sure and check out.”

“Catfish and the Dogstars were working their magical mystical vibes of cultured grooves when I first arrived. I had been meaning to check these guys out for awhile and I see now what I was missing out on.”

“April has been a busy month for us at Virtually Home. We had two amazing fundraising events....The first was our Rock for Rescue held at The Store on April 14, and featured music from Catfish & The Dogstars....We hope Rock for Rescue will be an annual event, everyone had such a wonderful time and can thank Candice...for organizing this fabulous event!”

“It’s been awhile since I have checked in with Catfish & The Dogstars and this set led me to regret this decision....It’s easy to explain why their fanbase has grown: tight changes from Guitarist Mike Morgan, Colin Nordine singing pitch perfect behind his high hats and drums, ........................, and classically trained flying V violinist Najeeba Syed bowing eloquently into the evening. It all seamlessly melds together into composed art.”
