The Wildcat O'Halloran Band  

Not at all finalized....and last year,juggled dramatically all day...but here's a tenative lineup for Wendell Blues Fest at Deja brew Sat . 6/27:

5-5:35 Special K w/ Phyllis Lataille and Kenneth Kucza
5:40-6:15 Dangerboy
6:20-6:55 Eva Marie Cappelli
7-7:35 Buddy McEarns
7:40-8:15Otto Lenz Nash OttomaticSlim
8:15-8:50 Janet Barker Ryan
8:55-9:30 David Boatwright
9:35-10:10 Charlie Scott
!0;15-11 Wildcat O'Halloran with Kaedt Spitfire Le Fay
11-midnite: Sarah Halloran and all-star grand finale (indoors)

Notes: 1) They're all awesome- mostly tried to alternate girl/boy, except put daughter Sarah and end...hope we can fit some people in Brew for her set
2.) May have reversed Boats and Charlie, will dbl check what times they want
3.) Young Buddy gets promotion this year for (in addition to his superstar talent) being most punctual guest last year...and helping lug equipment indoors!)
4.) Didn't really schedule myself for an actual set out of respect for my amazing friends, some of whom are new to you Wendellites...and my band(Devin GriffithsJoe Fitzpatrick and David Kenderian) will be backing a lot of the guests, so you'll see enough of the Cat anyhow...maybe sneak in a couple songs from new record with Cait Squires if time

 Question:   Will the Wendell Wildcat BluesFest be back for a 2nd yr.?
Answer:  Oh, Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 This year, we'll have Janet Ryan, Ray Chaput, Eva Capelli, Ottomatic Slim and Phyllis Lataille as new additions, along with Last years faves: Wally Greaney, Dave Boatwright, Buddy McEarns, Charlie Scott.....and, of course, The Wildcat O'Halloran Band!!

If You're looking for something different, check out Wildcat O’Halloran’s “Too Much Weekend” blues jam in Northampton every Sunday 4-8pm at the City Sports Bar (Northampton Bowling Alley). It’s a crazy fun confluence of music and social intermingling, kind of like a high school dance. Other may copy, but there’s only one Wildcat! A longtime reigning regional talent on the blues scene, Wildcat is a charming host and warmly welcomes guests to his weekly party (Free Pizza while it lasts!!).  Wildcat is a freaking genius at magicking up instant bands in an endlessly entertaining stream of action (but who knew he was also a twinkle toes on the dance floor!?)  Each week the jam features a special guest followed by those who sign up to play.  It's always a surprise to see who shows up and how Wildcat makes it flow. The jam draws popular local musicians like Tommy Whalen,  Eva Capelli and Charlie Scott, to courageous first time jammers nourished by the enthusiastic encouragement they receive. One minute Wildcat’s screaming guitar sends dancers into a frenzy, and the next, the audience and musicians are treated to Wildcat on drums or bass. You never know what will happen but a good time is pretty much guaranteed.
Winning last year’s Valley Advocate Grand Slam Championship seemed like a turning point and the future is looking bright for the Cat.  "Party up in Heaven" is being played across the country and climbing the blues charts and was just submitted to the Blues Music Awards. If you've got the blues, don't reach for the pharmaceuticals, reach for Wildcat O'halloran. 


 The Wildcat O'Halloran Band....we've opened for everyone from Greg Allman to the Stray Cats....we've been Bo Diddley's backing band....we won the last Valley Advocate grand band Slam....and we've been keeping the blues alive (and awake!) in New England for over 20 years...Our new CD- Party Up In Heaven is still being played on over 250 stations worldwide, and got rave reviews everywhere, including the June Living Blues Magazine...We're now going on 3 years at our Sunday Jam in Northampton Mass  (City Sports Grille), and making some inroads on the local festival circuit....we also ventured out to Millenium Music Conference in Pa. (going again this Feb.), and a bunch of NYC gigs, including the Big Apple Indie Music Series
