RoXi and the Blue Cats / Press

“The Blue Cats live up to their billing of hip and honky, laid back hypnotic smoky Blues ....”

“Built For Comfort .. absolutely amazing .. that bands going to go a long way....... we will be hearing a lot more of RoXi and the Blue Cats... !! When Baby Gets The Blues ..... I like to leave the good slow stuff for the end of the show ... which tells you how good it is! Amazing ... if your going to buy one album this year buy RoXi and the Blue Cats !”

“8 1/2 minutes of pure excellence ... Ball & Chain... brilliant track from RoXi and the Blue Cats album .. great, really great!”

“Playing one of my all time favourite tracks 'Ball and Chain' from RoXi and the Blue Cats album who are swiftly becoming one of my favourite bands ... those cats do boogie & play some serious blues!”

“Der Beginn des Debüts von Roxi & The Blue Cats setzt gleich die Stimmung für den Rest: Es darf ruhig etwas schmummrig werden. Es ist Nacht, Zeit nicht nur zum Schlafen. "Blue Cats Strut" ist die passende Nummer dazu: Ein hypnotisch-düsterer Groove und eine laszive Stimme. Das ist Bluesrock der sexy Art: verführerisch und zwingend......”

“UK Sensation RoXi and the Blue Cats : Outstanding version of Ball and Chain”

“Slick, down and dirty, but amazingly clean sounding, Roxi & The Blue Cats dish out the blues in a smooth, sexy, and even sultry fashion…the way blues is meant to be. They sound gruff, beautifully brusque, and wonderfully thick on some tracks, but turn it all around on the next track, coming off musically sharp and held together with an attractive barroom charm. To say the least, Roxi and the Blues Cats is a truly great blues album. Lovers of the blues, especially the British Blues, will appreciate everything they hear on these tracks. The covers are well done, with style, and the band exudes a sincere blues sound on the originals. Most of all, the blues sound doesn't have to be looked for on each track: it's there instantly. The band has a unique chemistry of getting across their sound without doling out much effort. Blues lovers will notice this right away, and will get hooked after the first listen.”

“De krachtige stem van Roxi doet ons onverwijld sterk terugdenken aan een jonge Janis Joplin. Het aanstekelijke openingsnummer ‘Blue Cats Strut’ wordt meteen sterk gedragen door heavy baslijnen en strakke drumpartijen. In de bluesballade ‘Ball & Chain’ neemt Ellins het voortouw met ingetogen gitaarwerk, net als het indrukwekkend en emotionele stemgeluid van Roxi. Met ‘Built For Comfort’ van Willie Dixon grijpt de band onverwijld terug naar de basis van de blues. This band is a must for blues lovers, but I hope in the future for a full release with more original work.”

“Great tunes ... They draw you right in. Really nice chord voicings . You have a real identifiable sound which ain't easy to do ... good job.”

“Tracks such as the Willie Dixon classic "Built for Speed," feature a classic Blues ostinato bass-groove, doubled in the guitar, that lays down the main foundation for the vocals and guitar solo to build upon. Vocalist and bandleader Roxi digs deep into her blues vocal palette to deliver one of her finest performances on the record. There is one moment near the end of the track when the drums line up with her vocal punches, driving the words into the listeners psyche and showcasing the band's ability to lock up on the time and dig deep into the pocket. As well, lead guitarist Martin Ellins puts down one of his best solos of the album on this track, alongside the slow blues number "Ball and Chain," which reminds one of Jimmy Page's groove on "Since I've Been Loving You" and Stevie Ray Vaughan's slow blues classic "Tin Pan Alley."”

“It is not often that we review a cover band, as Jamsphere is almost strictly dedicated to original music, but Roxi & the Blues Cats is an exception as they do a bit of both and they do it rather well. If what we call British Bebop Blues, is your bag then you should have a Roxi album in your collection, or at least attend one of their many live performances. Click here to read full article ....”

“The Lotus Festival gig was great with the dancefloor packed for the second set. A good range of music with something for everyone. Fortunately my short visit to the stage didn't end with me falling off. The Chain went down a blast and I look forward to the release of Lotus Elise Blues. Hopefully Burt will book the band at another event.”

“Gotta luv RoXi and the Blue Cats the "Blue Cats Boogie" oh yeah they sure do!!!!!”

The Fores - Reverbnation

“Blue Cats Boogie is my favorite. But you should change your name to the Blue Boxy Bats, then the song could be renamed to the Blue Bats Boogie! Ok, that was stupid. Love your blues!”
