Cat Empire

Last time I saw Cat Empire was in Central Park for a summer outdoor concert. Their Jazz/Latin/Instrumental pieces are perfect for outdoor venues on a sunny day. This past Saturday I saw them at Nokia Theater with Wendy and Steph. It was a great concert and I hope they come back to NY again for the summer for their new album next year. My favorite part of the concert is when they all play solos on brass or drum or keyboard. The trumpet player/vocalist also has an amazing voice.

Their live album Live on Earth is on itunes for $9.99 which is a great deal considering it has most of the hits. I bought and downloaded it after the concert and really enjoy it.

I really liked how energetic they were! The lead singer, especially. It was crazy that there was one person manning the whole operation at the stand afterwards.
