Profile

The Bad Cats are a charismatic, super-talented, modest all-male London 3 piece who specialise in delivering classic hits from the 80s, with a sprinkling of other well known classics from the 60s all the way through to the present day.


Their strength is their unique repertoire, choosing guilty pleasure songs designed to get your heads bopping, your feet stomping and the dance floor heaving. The boys combine their quirky song choices with tongue in cheek performances full of humour and crowd participation....Rest assured, if you know the lyrics, Greg will most certainly be calling you on stage for a sing song!


Available for hire for any private/corporate functions, weddings, divorces, birthdays, bar/bat mitzvahs and baby showers, The Bad Cats will guarantee a fun party that you will never forget!


And don't forget, having supported the likes of Spin Doctors, The Kooks and Supergrass, as well as achieving national airplay on Radio 2, these guys are seriously the real deal!

" I just wanted to email to ask if you could please pass on our MASSIVE thanks to The Bad Cats who performed at our wedding on 5th August. They were absolutely fantastic and even better than we ever could have hoped. The dance floor was full all evening and our guests did not want the set to end! The song selection was brilliant and suited all ages in our party, it also offered something that bit different which was great and exactly what we wanted. The guys were so friendly and easy going and we are so, so glad that we booked them and would recommend them to anyone! In fact one of the couples who came to our wedding have just got engaged and immediately asked us for the details of our band as they loved them so much! "

" The Bad Cats are legends! They were a fantastic wedding band and had everybody dancing all night. Their song selection was perfect - different from most wedding bands and much more fun. They were great to work with before the wedding and really friendly, and very professional on the day. All of guests have said they were brilliant (in fact they demanded many encores), and we completely agree. If you want your wedding to have a fun band that everyone will remember then we definitely recommend The Bad Cats! "
