BARB H “What can one say about The Aristocats!! Except that they continue to impress us at Front Range Brewing Company! They have such a great vibe and continue to support our community! We consider them one of the FRBC families. Thank you for your endless talent!!!”

MARK W “The Aristocats played for our private banquet of about 70 people. Their music had our group dancing from the first beat to the last. The musicians are tight and the lead singer, Augusta, is amazing! They covered everything from contemporary pop, blues, jazz, classic rock, and R&B. The band was very easy to work with and accommodated all of our needs. You can’t go wrong with The Aristocats. I’m already booking them for the same gig next year”

DEBORAH P ”Every show we have been to is a blast. So much talent and passion for great music. Augusta is tremendous! Go, you will not be disappointed!!!!”

GARY & SHERRY P. “Great musicians making great music. Can’t ask for more.”

REBECCA R. “What a band! Great sound, incredible licks, and what a range on the lead singer! Totally enjoyed myself, rockin’ out to a wide selection of tunes. I came expecting a snack and got a full-on banquet buffet! Thanks you all!”

AMY B. “yeah – great dancing and fun times!”

LAURIE K “Had a great time enjoying the music and dancing the snowy night away at the Powder Keg. Looking forward to hearing you again in 2016!”

LAURA W “What fun we have when we catch one of the Aristocats Gigs!! The play set is unique, the vocals outstanding, and the notes and beats superb!! Never a dull moment with this great group of musicians…catch them when you can!!”

EVA K “Whether I feel like dancing or just want to enjoy just listening, The Aristocats are my ‘go to’ band. They are eclectic, creative and generate very good energy!”

ROBERT A. “The Aristocats band were a perfect match for our Oh Heck Yeah! special event we produced on October 9, 2015 at the Loveland Public Library. The set-list was fun, funky, and kept everyone in a great mood with a mix of old-school R&B, Pop, and Rock-n-Roll. Everyone from kids, to teens, to adults really enjoyed the performance on a day that we really needed music to elevate an afternoon of gaming fun, artistic creation, and community engagement. Hopefully we can bring them back to some of our other events in 2016. I enthusiastically recommend hiring them for special events.”

KIMBERLY C. “Rockin’ it with the Aristocrats Friday night at Canon Mine Coffee in Lafayette!! A W E S O M E ! ! !”

CAROLINE  “Lots of fun, great dance tunes, friendly musicians. Going to see the Aristocats is a great night out.”
