The Whoopee Cats are a powerful female duo based out of Tacoma, WA, playing a unique blend of soulful blues, traditional rock, and original music that reminds you of some of the favorite tunes in your vinyl collection.
Lead singer Laurel Lundgren’s voice commands attention whether she’s delivering a heartfelt, bluesy ballad or a rock tune from the gut. Her ability to sound sweet and inviting, then turn on an intensity that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand, is impressive at her young age.
Guitarist Jill Nelson delivers perfect backing vocals and the type of acoustic and electric skills that make you wish the set was longer. Her slide work in some of the group’s original work and early traditional blues songs is reminiscent of an early Bonnie Raitt.
The Whoopee Cats play a variety of cover songs, but it’s the memorable lyrics and melodies of their original music that are quickly building a loyal fan base.
