FTK-scaled-200x200

Feed The Kitty isn’t just another LA band. Technically, they’re an LA/Orange County band, but the real point is that around these parts they’re known for working harder than any band in SoCal.

This self-managed trio plays 300 shows a year, from Hollywood to Dana Point to New York City to Europe! With a few thousand gigs already to their credit they long ago must have gone Top 10 on the all-time list of Most Shows Ever Played By A Rock Band! You know, probably.

Feed The Kitty’s third studio album, Westbound & Down, features “California Country Girl,” which has been heard on 88.5 FM and K-EARTH 101 radio in Southern California. “Whenever I play ‘California Country Girl,’ I can count on listener response,” says 88.5 FM deejay Jim Nelson. “Feed The Kitty sounds great on the air.” They are working on their next album now, once again recording at Dave Grohl’s famed Studio 606 in Los Angeles with producer John Lousteau (Foo Fighters, John Fogerty, Rush).

In the three minutes a week that Feed The Kitty isn’t playing a gig or recording an album, they’re busy making mini documentaries (well, okay, just one; it’s called Feed The Kitty: The Movie and it’s a lot of fun) or running around placing songs in films and TV shows, including in the Oscar-nominated Ryan Gossling movie Lars And The Real Girl and in National Lampoon’s Cattle Call, and the TV show Rogue used three of their tunes. And because sleep apparently isn’t necessary when you’re young, handsome, and in the self-described hardest-working band ever, Jed and Jack host the popular Feed The Kitty Power Hour on healthylife.net every Wednesday from 2-3pm (LA time).

Sunny

Like many of his generation, Sunny grew up rocking out to music from the 70’s and 80’s. In his early years, Sunny played guitar in many pick-up bands and also played with friends at local blues jams in the San Diego, California area. During this period, he found a lot of inspiration from influential bands across multiple music genres, including Pink Floyd, Rush, Direstraits, Dave Matthews Band, Eric Johnson, Sting, and Steely Dan. As Sunny continued his music journey, he found the perfect home in the world of jazz. Drawn by the inspiring compositions of jazz greats like Miles Davis, Wes Montgomery, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, and Pat Metheny, Sunny has focused on developing his own jazz and fusion sound by forming his own band. With a uniquely groovy sound and sophisticated modern Jazz style, Sunny has assembled talented members in his band including David Cook on bass, Scott Pugmire on drums, and the talented Kyung-Min Kim on piano. Together, they have been delighting crowds and building the Sunny Blue fan base throughout California’s South Bay Region. Currently based in Los Angeles, California, Sunny studies jazz with
Maestro Ken Song.
