Like every other story of hopes and dreams, Cats In Love who will be performing Live at No Black Tie on the 28th March 2018 began life as a rock band hell-bent on getting its brand of retro rock out to the world.
And like every other fable of lofty ambitions, nothing ever quite works out as planned. While the band’s personnel eased through a revolving door over the years, the seats that were finally filled included that of Lohan (guitar/vocals), Wong (keys), Zedes (bass) and Reuben / Ash (drums).
The quintet is under no grand illusion that life is going to be easy plying a route less-travelled, but the band’s guiding light has always been the music, and that’s exactly what these five musicians live (and die) for. And customary with rock music from the golden era of the genre – 60s and 70s – Cats In Love throw in smatterings of all things that have come to define classic rock music, so there’ll be equal amounts of rock, blues, prog, funk, pop, country.
The band has performed at various shows and festivals such as the Penang Jazz Festival 2017, IndiePG 2015, KL International Jazz Festival 2013, World Youth Jazz Festival 2012 and Urbanscapes 2011.
The band is on the cusp of releasing its debut album, “No Paws For Regret”, which, if all goes to plan, will see the light of day sooner rather than later. Till then though, CIL will see you under the glare of stage lights at a joint near you – like No Black Tie this 28 March 2018.
