Round 2! Opening for Marcus King Band

The 8x10, 10 East Cross Street, Baltimore, Maryland

If you miss us opening for him last time, shame shame shame. My goodness, what a homerun hitter. And with the recognition he's getting he won't be in the Minor Leagues long. Well deserved.

Also, just come see me folks. This train is about to change routes.

Thanksgiving Eve at the new Rye

Rye, 1639 Thames St, Baltimore, Maryland

Playing where Leadbetters used to be which is now Rye. Rye makes them fancy drinks. Toto, we ain't in Leadbetters anymore. But whether pinky-up or pinky-down Catfish is bringing the same damn sound. Come 'round.

Que At The Zoo

The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore - Druid Hill Park, 1876 Mansion House Drive , Baltimore, Maryland

Now if coming out to the Marcus King show helps us, truth be told, this one helps the community. Proceeds go The Maryland Zoo (if you’re into that kinda thing) and Believe In Music, an organization devoted giving Baltimore’s at-risk youth a musical outlet. It’s the passion project of Kenny Liner of the legendary Baltimore band, The Bridge. Speaking of the The Bridge, they will be making a rare performance as the headliners of this festival, along with People’s Blues Of Richmond, ELM, Bunk Buddah and yours truly. Shoutout to my boy James Nasty who is among the DJs for the day!

Opening for The Marcus King Band

The 8x10, 10 East Cross Street, Baltimore, Maryland

Don’t miss this. For real. Marcus King is one of them man-child guitar wonders with a damn good band and pretty good songs to boot. He’s got a new album produced by Mr. Warren Haynes, a blues-guitar Hercules himself. So you should come on that basis, but also Catfish is out here tryin to impress somebody. I’mma keep it real. Music industry folks like hearing good music, but they love seeing big crowds. Catfish could use some of those folks if he’s gonna keep this thing rollin. We had us a big ole turn out for the album release show. Think we can do it again?

$13:50, Price increases the day of the show. Just sayin.

Guiterrez Studios - First Friday Open House

Guiterrez Studios , 2010 Clipper Park Rd., Baltimore, Maryland

Real good people. Real creative people. People who like to party for real. My kind of people. Almost since the beginning of The Mad Dog No Good we’ve been playing summer open house gatherings for the folks at Guiterrez Studios. And they’ve certainly been strong supporters of us. So grab a beer, get some delicious grub and hang out while we play some tunes. I think I’m gonna start with an acoustic set if you’re into that kinda thing.

WTMD's First Thursday Concert

 —  —

Canton Waterfront Park, 3001 Boston St, Baltimore, Maryland

Yeaaaaaaaah! This is going to be great. it always is. So glad to have the support of a radio station like WTMD. Like "Spring" before it, they have been playing the hell out of our new single, "Got Soul". Well, they also have this First Thursday event that is really incredible. Every month in the summer they gather around 10,000 to 12,000 people for a free concert in Baltimore. On a Thursday. Good Lord. I really don't think they're getting the credit they deserve for continuing to pull that off. It be like that sometimes. Anyway, we playin. We real happy about it. It's free as sh--. Who comin?


Official Album Release Party w/ LaFayette Gilchrist, J Pope & Funk Friday

Ottobar, 2549 N Howard St, Baltimore, Maryland

So we've been working on an album. Long time coming I suppose. Boy, I hope it's good. I'll be damned if it doesn't sound that way at least right now. And perhaps you, but certainly people just like you helped make it happen at To all the donors, in a million years I couldn't thank you enough.

We haven't quite reached our crowdfunding goal yet (and I assure you we still need to), but I can tell you this for certain: On the evening of May 13 you can come to the Ottobar in Baltimore, sweat it out with LaFayette Gilchrist, J Pope & Funk Friday and The Mad Dog No Good and go home with a copy of Mannish Boys, this thing I've put so much into. May it find a spot among your favorites.

Hello again, Radio Land! Glad to be performing an acoustic set for WTMD's Brews & Bands. Sure, you could just listen to 89.7 FM, but wouldn't you rather come to this awesome party with music and 30 different local craft brews? And then, you could SEE me on the radio. Whoa. Far out.

Big ups to Mamma Catfish, breast cancer survivor extraordinaire!!! Details TBA.
