They started to spread a rumor ten years ago that there was a kid from St. Paul that shook his head so hard when he played his bass that for a moment you could take your eyes off of Slug, Jessy Greene, Felix, Sage Francis or whoever the Heiruspecs band was backing up that night. Did he really eat a 72 ounce steak in Amarillo, TX? Did he try to fit the entire Rapper's Delight bassline into 2 quarter notes in Omaha? Did he not know that butter was a dairy product until he was 20? Did he traipse around his house in nothing but a blanket for a cape and demand to be called King Fred as a child? Yes, depending upon what age someone stops being a child. But now it's time for Twinkie to ask some questions: will white girls dance to anything but Hey Ya? Does anyone appreciate a song about love disguised in an allegory about star-crossed fast food franchises? Can you explain away your misspent 20s by misspending your 30s? The answer might be in the record Sean 'Twinkie Jiggles' McPherson is making with his Broken Orchestra this summer. At least that's the rumor.

Why is a blues band from Western Massachusetts reuniting for two shows in Minneapolis? Let us explain.

 

In the 1990s in Western Massachusetts playing original music was like walking straight up a cliff. No infrastructure, no peers, no hope. The magnetism of strong scenes like Minneapolis and New York City pulled apart one of the most promising blues based groups in New England. Conor Meehan, the group’s drummer, has gone on to a career as a touring and session drummer playing with Honey Honey, Charles Neville and more. The set of brothers in the band, Steve and Sean McPherson have become fixtures in the Twin Cities music scene both as players and in various roles covering the Twin Cities music scene. And Todd Stentiford, the soulful beyond his years vocalist and guitarist who is at the core of Catfish Blue’s identity is a family man and educator living in Connecticut.

 

In 2009 the group did a heat check with a couple Thanksgiving shows in Western Mass. The energy and the tunes came naturally and since their last reunion show in 2011 the band has been jonesing to get into a studio proper and get the work done in a studio.

 

For a handful of days, Catfish Blue is going to hole up in the Hideaway Studios with Joe Mabbott and capture the sound as they’ve been hearing it for years. During that time, they’ll be stepping out to play two shows in the Twin Cities.

 

On Thursday, August 11 Catfish Blue will play two sets at 9 and 10 at the Red Stag in Northeast. The event is free and open to the public. To hear Catfish Blue’s music please visit their bandcamp page at catfishblue.bandcamp.com
