The Wildcat O’Halloran Band has been thrilling audiences in Western Massachusetts for over twenty years, and is currently promoting its 14th album, New York City 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.
Living Blues Magazine wrote: “Wildcat emerges as one of the most entertaining songwriters in contemporary blues… and his band doesn’t know the meaning of dull!”
Bill Copeland’s Music News says: “O’Halloran has done it again, coming up with this strong effort in traditional blues songs and in creating his own tradition influenced originals. Blues musicians, like fine wine, only get better with age, and New York City Chill is this outfits best effort yet. They have got to take their band as far as it can travel because this CD will make people want to hear them live.”
The Wildcat O’Halloran Band has opened for everyone from Greg Allman to the Stray Cats. They’ve been Bo Diddley’s backing band and won the 2018 Valley Advocate Grand Blues Slam.
