Cat Skellington is a gypsy jazz band based on the Isle of Wight. We live and gig on the Isle of Wight, London and the South. The typical line up of the band is a quartet with double bass, rhythm and lead guitars and clarinet/vocals.
Influenced mostly by the great French gypsy guitar player Django Reinhardt the music we play is largely from the swing era of the 1920s - 40s. It is a style of music with an irresistible beat and a boundless energy known to induce toe tapping of extreme vivacity.
Our latest album features:
Jez Gray - Double Bass
Hugo Boswell - Lead Guitar
Steve Thompson - Rhythm Guitar
David Hences - Violin
Richard White - Clarinet and Vocals
Alice Lee - Vocals
The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Tim Charlton.
