The first thing to strike you about Big Cats is their singer. Sarah Ditchburn has a fantastic voice and simply loves to use it, throwing herself into songs which many singers would hesitate even to attempt. The result is impressive, and occasionally stunning.
Having an unusually talented singer naturally widens the pool from which the band can draw their material. In selecting the songs to cover they have taken pains to avoid the more obvious choices, and have instead gone mainly for songs which, while they are just as well known, are generally less often covered - although they still cant resist dropping a few old favourites in to the mix. The result is a diverse and entertaining set with a high dancability factor.
The boys (I use the term loosely) in the band are all competent and experienced musicians, whose versatile playing ranges from sensitive and restrained accompaniment to outright rockin & rollin.
With an imaginative and varied repertoire, great musicianship, a highly professional attitude and one of the best singers around Big Cats are the ideal band for all occasions, from parties & weddings to pub music nights.
Big Cat's set list includes songs by Belinda Carlisle, The Corrs, Ocean Colour Scene, The Pretenders, Sheryl Crow, Guns 'n' Roses, Tiffany, Blondie, Cheap Trick, The Police, No Doubt, Pink, The Cure, Boston, The Bangles, Avril Lavigne, Eddie and the Hot Rods, The Knack, U2, The Feeling, The Zutons, Mica, Orson, Queen, The Undertones, The Manic Street Preachers, Joan Jet, The Darkness and many more.
