Since their formation in 2004, Hollywood Slim & The Fat Cats have played
at every major festival in Ireland, from the Kilkenny Rhythm & Roots to the
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 Walter inspired
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 on drums
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!
