Rick Estrin & The Nightcats

Saturday, August 24 | Ship Point | 7pm

“Foot-stomping, wise-cracking contemporary songs, a combination of rockabilly, jazz, blues, rock, and big band swing. Estrin is a world class musician…the most colorful and entertaining showman around.” – Forbes

The musically fearless, wildly entertaining, award-winning band Rick Estrin & The Nightcats consists of Alligator Records blues vocalist, harmonica master, and songwriting legend Rick Estrin, multi-instrumentalist/musical mastermind/producer Christoffer “Kid” Andersen, keyboardist/organ wizard/bass player Lorenzo Farrell, and endlessly creative drummer Derrick “D’Mar” Martin. Among the most entertaining and colourful showmen around, the band’s new album and sixth release, The Hits Keep Coming, packs a powerful punch, with phenomenal musicianship and lyrics. The record captures the band’s chemistry and magic in what is certainly among their strongest, most urgent, and most cohesive releases so far.

Rick Estrin & The Nightcats have performed at festivals and concert stages from San Francisco to Chicago to New York, and everywhere in between, and have toured the United Kingdom, Norway, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Poland, Australia, Israel, and Russia. The band has twice won the coveted Blues Music Award for “Band Of The Year”. Additionally, Estrin has won Blues Music Awards for “Song Of The Year”, “Traditional Male Blues Artist,” and for “Instrumentalist: Harmonica.” These serious musicians deliver a hot, groove-heavy, and hard-hitting good time. Try and fail to stay in your seat when Estrin and his musical cohorts get cooking at this year’s BC Smoke Shop Harbour Blues ‘n Roots Festival!

Opening for this evening will be Steve Marriner & Local Electric
