The Acoustikats - Boogie or Not? Recorded and released in 2008. Craig has 3 solo CDs to his credit. Cool Breeze Through the Ears, Peace of the Falling Sky, and That's the Way Life Is. Craig played with the band Stranger and put out an album (remember albums?) of original material with them. Craid has also appeared on other recording projects playing award winning (WAMI) haromonica for friends.



Craig and Jim are both excellent singer songwriters that have been performing since the late 1970's. Jim lived in Nashville for several years and Craig is a family man living and working in Wisconsin. Their mutual love of music created a brotherly bond between them. They were in different bands together for many years. Craig formed the bands Stranger and the Poodle Haters which both played Summerfest in Milwaukee. Jim played with Decade X and St. Bernard. They got back together when Jim returned to Wisconsin about 3 years ago. They started playing and gigging as a duo. Craig and Jim were joined by some other veteran players for the production of their CD Boogie or Not? and have now formed this live rock and blues band version of the Acoustikats. Ramie Espinoza (multiple WAMI award winning engineer) plays a blazing, tasteful lead guitar. Paul Petted (Jim and Craig's long time friend) has played in many bands and currently teaches drums. These guys really enjoy playing together as good friends. The joyful energy of making this music is felt by audiences they play for. The Acousikats play mostly original music and some covers. People say that Craig looks and rocks like George Throrogood so of course he is covered. Staples in music history are also covered; Beatles, Dylan, Allman Brothers, Van Morrison to name a few. People mention the positive energy that this band has as well as excellent material.
