Herby & The Mudcats represent a musical style that is deeply connected with the early blues that came out of Chicago, the West Coast and the Deep South. Yet we are telling today's stories, always looking ahead instead of pretending to be something or somebody from a time long passed and gone. The raw emotion and straight forward approach of the old masters is our inspiration. Our first and foremost goal is to connect with the listener. A song is not only supposed to be heard but also to be felt and experienced. We will always try to make you smile, dance, laugh, relax and think.
Our members are among Austria's most experienced and renown blues musicians, singers and songwriters. The list of international musicians we have worked and recorded with includes Steve Guyger, Big Jay McNeely, Katie Webster, Ashton Savoy, Henry Gray, Johnny Allen and many more. Together we are a band, playing the blues as rough, dirty, delicate and emotional as it was intended from the day it was born.
