the Fort Worth Cats

BandAlternativeRock

the Fort Worth Cats is an all original song band with influences from the Ventures, the Sex Pistols, the Beatles, the Vibrators, Johnny Cash, Lou Reed, and the ghost of Michael Jackson. We are like a garage band on steroids. We have been together for 30 years and shooting for 30 more.

Biography

The Fort Worth Cats have been together for over 30 years. We have just reunited and are playing reunion shows and other gigs around the D/FW metroplex. We do have quite a history. The music of the Fort Worth Cats is just as relative today, as it was in the late 70's and early 80's. As our music couldn't be catagorized, we were invited to play at most of the punk/new wave and alternative venues across the southwest. We rock, we put on a good show, we give it all we got? What sets us apart from other bands is our original music and enthusiasm. We intend to put it out there again, this time with even more fervor and determination.
In the 80's we opened for Roki Erickson, The Stray Cats, the Textones, who later became the Gogos, and Lou Diamond Phillips. We played at several large venues like the Paladium, D.J.'s Punk/New Wave Review at Yellow Belly Drag Strip, Club Foot, and Austin's still infamous Continental Club . You can check out our action at
