The Madcat Midnight Blues Journey features the harmonica wizard Peter Madcat Ruth. As a Grammy award winner, Peter Madcat Ruth has established an international reputation through his exhilarating, riveting virtuosity on the harmonica. His expertise on this instrument has amazed audiences world-wide.

He is equally at home playing blues, folk, jazz, country, or rock and roll. Performance Magazine refers to him as “A harmonica virtuoso who is rapidly approaching legend status.”

Madcat Midnight Blues Journey is conducted by Peter Madcat Ruth and this eclectic electric quartet is fueled by the guitar and steel fireworks of Drew ‘Cap’n Midnight’ Howard, and propelled by the mighty rhythm section of bassist Mark Schrock and drummer Michael Shimmin. Veterans of the concert and festival stage, the recording studio, clubs and listening rooms, Madcat Midnight Blues Journey (aka MMBJ) brings seasoned stage presence and improvisational exuberance to standard and obscure blues tunes, folk and jazz melodies and original music.

Expect a rocking journey through familiar blues destinations… but be ready to take a trip down a musical fork in the road with Madcat Midnight Blues Journey.
