Just A Few Cats first came together in the spring of 2000 to compete as a jazz band in a collegiate talent show. And with a funky rendition of Marvin Gaye's "Whats Going On," The Cats were victorious. While performing at a local festival, a cool, plump cat approached the band about becoming its lead singer, and that cat was Ruben Studdard. With the addition of the Big Cats silky-smooth voice and powerful stage presence, the band became a local sensation within Birmingham and surrounding areas.

As a newly evolved R and B and Soul band, Just A Few Cats claimed their spot as the hottest new band in the 205. Then in January of 2003, their lead singer, Ruben, went off to Hollywood to eventually become the second American Idol. After Rubens victory, Alvin Cornbread Garrett joined Ruben on the American Idol 2 Tour as the bass guitarist. Shortly after the tour, the two joined back up with the rest of The Cats and hit the road. With Cornbread as the music director and the band as the supporting cast, Ruben showcased his performance abilities to the world. Now after two year of being the supporting cast for Ruben, Just A Few Cats has stepped their game up with their own debut album, CATastrophunk.

The overall tone of CATastrophunk is playful; but with lyrical ingenuity and instrumental creativity, this CD truly sets a soulful CATmosphere. Cornbread, the bass guitarist turned vocalist/writer/producer, will no doubt surprise The Cats fans, and capture the hearts of others, with his free-streaming drift of passionate vocals. Who knew this Cat could really sing? The album also readily introduces Terrence T-Nasty Baldwin, the silky-rich voice that has held down lead vocals for The Cats since the Big Cats promotion in 2003. Written, produced and mixed by The Cats, with the help of talented master mixer and regular keyboardist, John Jackson,crystal clear melodies on CATastrophunk will no doubt leave you breathless and wanting to hang in the alley with Just A Few Cats.
