Nov 17 2018 with Ernie Clark & the Magnificent Bastards

We return to the stage with another show with our good friends Ernie Clark & the Magnificent Bastards. They put together a cool bill for Quinn & Tuite’s Irish Pub on November 17, 2018.

We really dig the bad ass rock n roll vibe these of Ernie Clark & The Magnificent Bastards.

Its classic old school American rock distilled to its bare elements, with a smooth-as-cheap-whisky country finish. The perfect music to drive to…. or fix your broke ass truck to….  as the case may be.

Black Cat Bone on Spotify

We finally got our act together and released both albums for distribution on Spotify, iTunes, Pandora, Amazon, and Spotify and a whole boatload of other sites.

We are on most of those sites under the moniker “Black Cat Bone 616”, using the Grand Rapids area code to separate us from the other artists out there using the name Black Cat Bone. There’s at least one in every country…. The oldest seems to be from the 70’s in Canada,  the current big deal is out of the UK… but the best Black Cat Bone is from the heart of the Rust Belt…. dirty ol’ Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA!

Mid-West Coast Blues”  from 2013, and “Jealous Is Poison” from 2017 have already available on our site, as well as Bandcamp, Soundcloud, and Reverbnation for some time, but we felt that it was important to broaden our horizons. You can download music for free or at a name-your-own-price on those sites.
