Tomcat Playground

A collaboration countless years in the making, Tomcat Playground are a new act on the blues scene, consisting of some of the East coasts finest blues musicians. Delivering a high energy, swinging style of traditional blues reminiscent of an era of Saturday night Juke joints, back alley gambling haunts and jazz bars, audiences consistently leave gigs sweating, smiling and wanting more. A four piece act, consisting guitarist Dave Blanken, Bass player Mike Rix, Drummer Greg Clarke and Harmonica player Dan Sullivan, the four have worked with some of Australia’s finest blues acts including Alison Penney & the Moneymakers, 19 Twenty and The Jacky Howellers. Drawing influence from the amplified blues of American greats BB King and Little Walter combined with the jumping, swinging riffs of West Coast masters such as T Bone Walker, the act instantly ensured their spot at the upcoming 2016 Sydney blues festival with a knock out performance at this years’ April “Blues and Brews”, hosted by the Sydney blues festival team. Also being snapped up by P & O for the November “Blues Cruise” this act is not one to miss for the pure blues follower..
