* MCats Gig #40 – Winchester 30th


It may have been a 30th birthday party in Winchester for Kevin (and Britt), but it was the 40th gig for The MCats Band! So when a little bird (let’s call him Craig) told us that our hosts were looking for a Dave-Matthews-Band-type cover band, we said, “We’re a band!” Followed shortly by, “Where’s Winchester?” This was, by far, the cutest audience we’ve ever had. Plus the weather held, so that was good. It’s not every day that the pug is deemed the big dog (sorry, Murphy)! And our photo album has 30 photos! Such symmetry. It’s pleasing. Thanks to Kevin and Britt for a great party! Next year: band bus. In development: MCats reality TV show.
