fantastic vintage swing band - guaranteed to create a fantastic buzz with the crowd and playing fantastic music
A brilliant vintage swing band - guaranteed to get everyone on their feet and creating a superb atmosphere. Their music and stage presentation is of the highest quality and they just know how to engage the audience. First class
well well, I watched this band in action at Great Barford and can tell you they are superb. The presentation with lights and suits is second to none and really creates that atmosphere and the music was really well played and an excellent mix as well. The floor was packed from start to finish. I thought they were outstanding A++++

Wow, wow, wow - simply fantastic. They hit the switch and boom it just went off. The audience danced like crazy and were sweating like mad - the main chap Kal was in amongst the audience whooping then up showing them dance moves and singing some fab music - I wish I'd recorded this - they should be on TV! This is the best night we've ever seen at this club in all the years - Kal's Kats - just superb. Happy new year for 2017 all and get these guys booked for your event. You won't regret it - Peter H. Manager

Samantha Luna Louise (Strictly jitterbug) 10/10
What can I say - we attended the weekender and on Saturday watched one band and many of us were disappointed and were ready to leave but wanted to wait to see this band called Kal's Kats. We didn't know what to expect and hoped they would be better than the previous band and boy were we in for a treat. Kal's kats are simply fantastic!!! There 250 people in that room at the Royal Bath Hotel and everyone danced the entire night through. we were delighted and cannot praise this band highly enough, really excellent. Thankyou Kats - you outdid yourselves
