“The Twin Cats may very well have raised The Blues to the next progression!By adding elements of progressive jazz and rock and modern instrumentation, The Twin Cats has made the blues more appealing and more accessible to a wider audience. Blues music was originally slower paced, dark and sad in mood and if you weren’t depressed when you started listening to it, you might very well be when you finished! While the lyrics may still be on the darker side, the music is much faster paced, while maintaining the unmistakable “blues sound”. The keyboards and sax add a lot of “depth” to the music. Seth Catron’s voice has that perfect “gravelly” sound so important to the male blues singer. He is a perfect fit for this group. The rest of the band plays impeccably as well. The Twin Cat’s music should appeal to both the veteran Blues listener and the new comer alike. The white community as well as the black. ”
