Since their formation in 2004, Hollywood Slim & The
Fat Cats have played
at every major festival in Ireland, from the Kilkenny Rhythm & Roots
Cork Jazz, winning new fans with every show and rapidly increasing their
fast assembled following, both domestically and internationally.
Fronting this band is the enigmatic Hollywood
Slim whose distinctive soul drenched vocals and razor sharp harmonica
playing are spectacularly complimented by the dynamic multi-layered performances
of guitar maestro, Junior Hynes.
Drawing mainly from the West Coast blues style, Slim takes his Little
Mississippi saxophone right over to Chicago, then west to California,
wailing up an unholy storm along the way.
The solid-groove rhythm section, with Papa Hynes
and Jay Mullally on bass, swings
resolutely throughout while
ace guitarist Junior Hynes sets pulses racing with fiery
T-Bone Walker/B.B. King inspired licks.
Adding a little extra spice to the mix is fat cat newcomer
Duke D on keyboards.
Welcome to the band’s website. We hope that you
enjoy the music!
