In 2012, The Madcat Midnight Blues Journey first appeared on the Michigan music scene. Now, just three years later, they are one of the hottest blues/roots/Americana Bands in Michigan. Conducted by harmonica wizard Peter Madcat Ruth, this eclectic electric quartet is fueled by the guitar and steel fireworks of Drew "Captain Midnight" Howard, and propelled by the mighty rhythm section of bassist Mark "Papa" Schrock and drummer Michael "Kid" Shimmin. Veterans of the concert and festival stage, the recording studio, clubs, and listening rooms, the Madcat Midnight Blues Journey (aka MMBJ) brings seasoned stage presence and improvisational exuberance to standard and obscure blues tunes, folk and jazz melodies, and original music. Expect a rocking journey through familiar blues destinations.. but be ready to take a trip down the musical fork in the road with Madcat Midnight Blues Journey. All aboard!
