The Wildcat O’Halloran Band has been thrilling audiences in Western Massachusetts for over twenty years, and is currently promoting its 14th album NYC Chill, building on the success of the last five: Hot Pulldown, Midnight Service Call, Party Up In Heaven, Cougar Bait and Drinkin’ With the Harp Girls, each of which was played on over 200 stations, and called “crazy-fun” by the Boston Blues Society and “a great release” by the UK’s Blues Matters.
NYC Chill is his strongest CD yet!Bill Copeland
The band has opened for just about every major blues artist to visit Massachusetts, from Greg Allman to John Lee Hooker to The Stray Cats, and has been backup band for Bo Diddley and James Cotton. Recently, they opened for Duke Robillard at Greenfield’s Hawks and Reed Music Hall. The band is often featured at Millennium Music Conference, with Wildcat the longtime host of the Sunday Blues Jam in Northampton.
