Think of cool a 50's style dance band playing at a sock hop, and you have Toni and the Rhythm Cats. Toni is adding a new lease of life to good old rockin' and rollin' tunes from a much loved era.
Her love of the music inspired by the raw sounds of 40's and 50's rockabilly, blues, and honky tonk is expressed through each performance as Toni is joined by fabulous musicians from all around the hep joints of Australia, playing as the Rhythm Cats. A fun loving attitude, on stage and audience interaction is enjoyed everywhere Toni and the band play and are encouraging new faces into the scene.
With ever increasing momentum, the dance floors are filling. Toni and the Rhythm Cats are gaining dedicated followers from each performace, and the dance halls are heating up with the sounds of the original music Toni is writing.
Johnny Cash, Wanda Jackson, Johnny Burnett, Carl Perkins and Janis Martin tunes can also be heard among the mix of music, along with some old greats from Big Mamma Thornton and some hep tunes from the 40s.
Toni is by no means shy of the stage, entertaining audiences at many of Australia's great festivals and car shows, Kurri Kurri Nostalgia Festival, Chromefest, Cooly Rocks On, Country Music Festival at Broadbeach and many others, including being the only Rockabilly singer invited to perform at a great festival with Shannon Noll and a lineup of Rock Bands!
Toni and the Rhythm Cats are performing around NSW and interstate on a very regular basis, so check out our calendar for our upcoming gigs, and don't be shy to come say hi.
