"What we're doing is genuine," said lead guitarist Jesse Beaugard of Omaha, Neb. He called playing with St. Cyr the apex of his musical career. St. Cyr, of Winnebago, Neb., takes the lead playing harmonica, singing and writing original music. Johnny Bekish, of Sioux City, plays drums. Chris Buhler, a Sioux City native and the youngest member of the group, is on keyboard. He's been playing since he was 14, much of the time under the mentorship of St. Cyr. "I'd like it to be a breakout year for this band," St. Cyr said. The Kalico Kats have become regulars at WinnaVegas Casino and Resort opening for Smokey Robinson and Brandi not long after the band formed.
