Back to Blues Heaven here...

Rick Estrin and The Night Cats is a veritable entertainment machine and one of the USA’s greatest blues bands with the charismatic front figures Rick Estrin on vocals and blues harp, and Norwegian Kid Anderson on guitar.

It all started on one September day in 1976, but no one then dreamt of all the honors, awards, and international recognition that awaited the band. They mixed traditional Chicago blues with rock’n roll, swing, and jump blues, and when the first record, ‘All the Way Crazy’, appeared in the record shops in 1987, they were already internationally famous.
Rick Estrin became the winner of the prestigious Blues Music Award as best blues harmonica player during a ceremony in Memphis last year. The Nightcats have once again been nominated as ‘Band of the Year’. Besides that, Rick is nominated as ‘Entertainer of the Year’ and Kid as ‘Guitar Player of the Year’.
