The Hubcats consist of Fred, Stewart and sometimes Jim. We have seen them host gigs in locations as diverse as a Birthday party for a litter of puppies (in the kennel). To an audience of 600 at an entomology convention. The organic synthesis of Mandolinist/Vocalist Freds folkgrass /blues influence, the art folk/pop persuasion of Vocalist Stewarts guitar playing, and Cajonist Jims mastery percussive style, grew into a unique, taut, compelling sound. Live, The Hubcats is undoubtedly an exciting band. This two/threesome has the ability to hold an audience spellbound with their impassioned and unabashed juxtaposition of melodic intricacy and intensity, crafted perfectly into a carefully-weighted mixture of pop sensibility and art folk angularity that challenges the listener at every turn.
