Biography

Both of us wanted to play the blues ever since we heard it. Witek learned the typical boogie oscinato from his father in 2006, Antek - heard the music from his fathers CD collection. When we met on school fairs in 2006, from then on we play what we like the most: blues and boogie in the style of the Old Cats. We play blues standards as well as own compostions. On our first official performance on "Blues nad Bobrem", Boles³awiec, Poland, we recieved two prizes: one for "Best traditional blues" and one for Witek as an multi-instrumentalist. We got more and more convinced, that what we do is right, after such gigs and festivals as the"Jimiway Blues Festival 2007" in Ostrow Wlkp., Poland, where we had the great pleasure to play with musicians of Mississippi Heat (Kenny Smith, Giles Corey). At the present we are a resident band in the legendary Tygmont Jazz Club in Warsaw, and play regularly in the "T.B.King Blues Club". February 2009 we play in the semi-finals of 25th International Blues Challenge 2009 in Memphis, Tennessee, getting very good scores and comments from jury.
