The Astro Cats
Hailing from the Seattle/Tacoma area, The Astro Cats band merges the styles of two great frontmen, blending the superb and inspiring modern indie rock style of guitarist/vocalist Billy Shew with the highly regarded roots based blues guitar, slide guitar, harmonica, and vocals of Brian Lee. The Astro Cats rhythm section features the incredibly talented Hank Yanda on bass and vocals, and the remarkably versatile and superbly polished Charlie "Mac" McDowell on drums. Adding additional spice and soul to the front line is the amazing Angelo Guerrero on Soprano, Alto, and Tenor Sax.
The Astro Cats repertoire features Billy's original modern indie rock songs, Brian's original roots oriented songs, and a carefully honed selection of rock and roots cover tunes to create a unique sound that is broad in musical range while being strongly cohesive and inspiring throughout.
Join us for a great night of entertainment with The Astro Cats!

James Howard Band
San Francisco Bay Area native James Howard showed an early talent for the guitar when as a teenager he was an in demand lead guitar player in local gigging bands. Inspired by the rock and pop music that he was hearing on the radio, James searched out the roots of this music in blues, jazz, folk, Latin and R&B and he explored all those styles. Now based in Seattle, we welcome the James Howard Band to Vino Bella!
