The Flaming Mudcats

“The Flaming Mudcats hail from Auckland, New Zealand, but easily could be mistaken to be from Chicago’s south side.”

Steve Jones. Crossroads Blues Society, Rockford Illinois USA. Dec. 2018

Doug Bygrave (guitar) Craig Bracken (Vocals/Harp) Ian Thomson (drums) Johnny Yu (bass)

Now in their eleventh year and three albums under their belt, Aucklanders, Craig Bracken, Doug Bygrave, Ian Thomson and “newbie”, Johnny Yu are collectively better known to Blues fans as The Flaming Mudcats.

They have performed in the USA, Australia and Pacific Islands as well as manage a busy schedule right here at home. Their energetic set blends their own material with a few covers drawn from the guys’ eclectic influences. Butt shakers to soulful grinders…welcome to the show.

The band’s third and latest album “Cut Loose” is a stomping collection of mostly originals, celebrating styles, rhythms, good and not so good times.
