RoXi and the Blue Cats: blues quintet from Enfield, UK (E116)

About: RoXi and the Blue Cats

RoXi and the Blue Cats: blues\blues-rock quintet from Enfield, UK played in E116 of the ArenaCast

"RoXi and the Blue Cats are a 5 piece blues / rock band playing an eclectic, raunchy and dynamic mix of sizzeling hot to chilled out old and new mainly blues / rock covers and original songs with shades of jazz, country or anything else with a blues vibe."

1. Is there a story behind your song "When Baby Gets The Blues"?
The track was written by our bass player Phil Plant who has had an interesting life, I suspect there is a story behind the song, but if so, he hasn't divulged it to us!!

2. Describe your music in 3 words.
Difficult finding 3 words to describe the band as although we play mainly blues, its still quite eclectic in nature, especially with two music teachers in the band ... but I guess ... Bold, Emotive & Blue :)

3. Describe your perfect gig - where would it be?
Perfect gig... would be any big blues festival where we don't have to take or set up any gear and get to see and maybe jam with lots of other great blues bands :)

4. What do you think of episode 116? Which of the other featured songs do you like the most?
Episode 116 was great, although couple of minor things mentioned about our band weren't quite correct, we are mainly a blues band although you can find us playing Blues/Rock, Jazz/Blues and anything with a blues vibe, it was the female singer RoXi who had ear infections and couldn't hear on the day of the recording and the sound engineer only had 2 hours to mix all 9 tracks LOL... Not usually keen on rap but really liked Vinnie and the Stars: I'm Not From America, funky and funny :)

5. What would you and your band do if tomorrow was the end of the world?
If tomorrow was the end of the world we'd still be playing the blues!
