The Black Cat Bones has a timeless, energetic blues-rock sound coupled with a new, mature and innovative approach to their music. The song-writing skills of vocalist Kobus de Kock jr and guitarist Andre Kriel tell an honest story. Chris van der Walt plays on bass and keyboards, while Jason Hinch performs on drums and percussion. Jacob Wulana is on Hammond Organ and the breath-taking vocal harmonies of Tammy Wilson lend intensity to their live shows.
