About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

What do you call a band that can play the deep-pocket swing of the Big Bands in the 1940s, yet can still deliver the funky dance music of Earth Wind & Fire...or Lynrd Skynrd...or even Taylor Swift?! GWEN & THE RETRO KATS is what you call it! GWEN & THE RETRO KATS have thrice been voted Atlanta 'Favorite Jazz/Swing Artist' by Creative Loafing Magazine. Why? The answer is clear: the band is a premier ambassador of jazz, showcasing both the classic big band stylings of the jazz golden age, but also the funk & dance music of today. Motown NEVER had it so good when you have players like THE 'KATS bringing out the music...and Gwen Hughes' vocals laying on the soul. So, if you want intimate background jazz...or big band swing...or contemporary dance music...or maybe a combo of all of the above...you have come to the right page! PLEASE NOTE: For a detailed itinerary of our performances, please google "Gwen Hughes Atlanta Calendar." We are adding dates every week and the calendar on Gigmasters might not reflect the latest dates we have. Thank you!
