Roaring Cats are one of Europe’s most promising bands regarding swing and hot jazz. The tiny orchestra, based in Amsterdam, took the challenge of giving value and new significance to the roots of jazz.
Their repertoire consists of original arrangements of the finest tunes by the top artists of the 30’s and 40’s: from Fats Waller to Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington to Jimmie Lunceford. Swell notes for hyperactive swing dancers and for sedentary drinking listeners.
