Band: Cat Rhodes and the Truth
Date: Friday, July 10 at 8 p.m.
Venue: Moe’s Original BBQ, 6423 Bayfront Park Drive,
The Eastern Shore will receive a dose of the Truth when Cat Rhodes and the Truth bring their unique brand of soulful blues to the intimate confines of Moe’s Original BBQ in Daphne. Rhodes and Grammy-nominated drummer Bryan Morris began building this band in 2013, and were soon joined by bassist Jojo Morris and guitarist Bob Erickson Jr. These proud members of the Blues Society of Northwest Florida represented their region at the 2015 International Blues Challenge, where they won many new fans thanks to their flawless musicianship and Cat Rhodes’ powerful vocals.
The curious can sample Cat Rhodes and the Truth through their 2014 release, “Mouth Watering Blues.” Rhodes’ sultry blues vocals take center-stage as she weaves tales of love gone wrong and life experience. Erickson’s guitar slithers its way through each track with bluesy runs up and down the fretboard. This band has a firm grasp on classic blues style, and its live presentation solidifies its reputation on the Gulf Coast blues scene.
