Black Kat Boppers hail from down on the south coast water way in Southampton.
Having all played Rockabilly music together, busking in the streets as teenagers they finally got moved on by the police one too many times and slowly lost touch and drifted off in to their own lives(Roy was lead singer in much loved rockin quartet Get Smart which also featured Jonny Bowler who went to a long career with the Guana Batz, Colin also played drums for Get Smart a number of times) After various triumphs, loves and losses they found themselves brought back together in December 2009 by chance meetings, speculative phone calls and a little bit of fate. A shared love for rockin’, roots music prevailed
Influences include Johnny Burnette, Gene Vincent, Johnny Cash, Shakin’ Pyramids, Rhythm & Blues, Jump & Jive, Doo Wop & Dirty, Ramblin’ Country. Collectively, when all brought together the Black Kat Boppers sound is authentic, sincere & unique.
"WITH THE BLACK KAT BOPPERS YOU GET TO EMERSE YOURSELVES IN THAT ROCKIN' FEELIN, FOR WE COVER MOST GENRES OF THE FIFTIES , BUT THINK OF US AS 'ROCKIN THE BLUES' IF YOU MUST, COS THATS THE WAY WE ROLL!" - Roy Phillips
The tracks on the recent “Live Sessions” CD were recorded totally live, there’s blips, there’s bloopers but it bops.. It’s what we sound like! Four out of the seven tunes are original Boppers compositions.
Black Kat Boppers have recently supported Kitty, Daisy & Lewis & The Congo Faith Healers generating great feedback and an increasing fan base.. They are also house band at the rockin', rhythm & blues monthly club night Shake, Rattle & Roll in Southampton at The Cellar(http://www.soulcellar.com/)
Everybody loves that Boppers raw sound young, old, stupid, clever, hippies, punks, students, drop outs, mums, dads, your sister, drunks, weirdos, ravers, strippers, mods & rockers…..
