30 June 2017- CATS in SPACE to appear at BST HYDE PARK with Phil Collins, Blondie, Mike & the Mechanics, Prince's Power Generation 



CATS in SPACE!

They are calling it ‘Power Pop Rock’, and their aim is to unashamedly take you back to the heady days of the 1970s when bands like Queen, ELO, 10cc, Supertramp & Sweet, ruled the airwaves. Yes, ‘Cats in Space’ are retro, however, they have a sound that has been unheard for many years, in fact, probably not since those American underground pop masters ‘Jellyfish’. Founding ‘Cat’ Greg Hart has recruited a wealth of experience to join him in his musical spaceship destined to land here on Earth as we speak. The debut long player is entitled ‘TOO MANY GODS’, out October 2015 and consists of a collection of commercial hit songs all played out and produced in an impeccable manner. The debut single ‘Mr Heartache’ written by Greg and 10cc’s Mick Wilson, is released this September and features a guest appearance from the legendary Andy Scott from ‘Sweet’.
The album features soaring multi tracked vocal harmonies nestled alongside guitar orchestrations, dazzling keyboards, bombastic drums, thundering bass and luscious pianos, and the music is there to be enjoyed in one continuous journey, as it used to be in those awesome analogue days…

Featuring PAUL MANZI - Vocals, GREG HART - Guitars, B/Vocals, DEAN HOWARD - Guitars, STEEVI BACON - Drums, Percussion, JEFF BROWN - Bass, B/Vocals, & ANDY STEWART - Synths, Keyboards, Pianos and Vocoders...

  • Jools/Christopher Holland

Southend-on-Sea Cliffs Pavilion Dec 2007, Steevi took care of drum duties for Chris Holland Band opening for Jools and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra ( it was wonderful to finally meet Jools, Lulu, Ruby Turner the band, and of course, legendary Squeeze drummer Gilson Lavis! )











  • Robin Trower

Of the many recording sessions Steevi has undertaken, one fave in particular was to work on transatlantic guitar legend ROBIN TROWER's (Ex-PROCOL HAREM) album "Go My Way" (Aezra Records)  which is currently enjoying worldwide success. 

Most recently Steevi also appears on Robin's ''Another Days Blues'' (V12 Records) with Jamiroquai's back-up vocalist Hazel Fernandez taking guest lead vocal.

  • Richard Watts
Steevi also worked with aforementioned Mr. Trowers' current vocalist, Richard Watts, a very talented and smashing musician in his own right,  check out Richard's very own debut album- 'Radiate' (now also available on iTunes) 












  • The King

"The King! A very clever concept of paying tribute to deceased rock stars by singing their big hits in the guise of Elvis! Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy = Whisky in the Jar, Stevie Ray Vaughan = The House is a Rockin!. Marc Bolan = 20th Century Boy etc... get the gist? The King is possibly the worlds greatest Elvis soundalike!!! So much so, he has toured the world as 'The King ' with an outstanding backing band, from UK to Vegas to Australia and beyond!"

Richard Watts and Steevi were flown out to Germany with MD Keith Atack to dep a show on drums and bass at the famous open-air festival the Kieler Woche in Kiel (near Hamburg) for German EMI signed idol (The King) globally known for his 'Come as You Are' hit cover by Nirvana off his cult album "Gravelands", his audience hit well in the regions of 80,000 plus that weekend. Steevi did a few more shows with these guys before they retired the band to follow new ventures...




  • Heaven & Earth

After finishing pre production at Chapel studios, Lincs UK under the watchful eye of producer Don Airey (Deep Purple), Steevi's last project with rock band Heaven & Earth took him and his band by road to Mountain Studios, Montreux, Switzerland, to work with world class producer David Richards (QUEEN, BOWIE, IGGY POP, MICHAEL JACKSON, DURAN DURAN, CHRIS REA, DEEP PURPLE, Phil Collins  etc.) on a promo album. Grunge had just exploded on earth, so probably a bad time to attempt such noodlings! but "hey ho!" 

Whilst recording in Montreux for a whole month, and drums still mic'd up and warm, Steevi was asked personally by Brian May to record some new tracks on spec for rock band Queen's very latest album 'Another World'  However "Swiss Time" ran out due to David's commitment to the H&E project, fortunately allowing late drum legend Cozy Powell to finish what he'd started...  Some things are just meant to be.   Rest in Peace Cozy Powell..







Janey Bombshell is a GLAM-tastik vocalist from the UK, with her love of the 70s Janey has just released her debut album ROCKA-ROLL-AROUND' some great Glam rock tunes to beautiful ballads taking you on a journey back to when real music mattered. Played totally live with a cool rock band to boot!
Steevi played drums and percussion for the album and has been asked play some of the live shows too.

"It's the music that makes you want to get up and dance. Head back to the Sensational Seventies with Janey Bombshell, the girl who puts the Glam in Rock."
Diddy David Hamilton

"Each track is inspired by nostalgia but built around brand new hooks and melodies that stay with you long after the song ends."
Pat Marsh, BBC Radio
