Rick Estrin & The Nightcats

Groovin' In Greaseland

Groovin' In Greaseland

Estrin and his celebrated band of virtuosos present another infectious collection of whip-smart blues, filled with crafty songwriting and exceptional musicianship.  The songs are delightfully wily and warped lyrically, effortlessly tight and playful musically. Thirteen fresh originals ride Estrin’s powerhouse harmonica and “hard-luck sandwich on wry” lyrics and The Nightcats’ wild guitar, soul-deep organ and greasy grooves.  Powerful, rollicking and magical…virtuoso harp, wildly eccentric guitar, sly, streetwise vocals and great songs” –Blues & Rhythm
