Just A Few Cats

Just A Few Cats first came together in the spring of 2000 to compete as a jazz band in a collegiate talent show. And with a funky rendition of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On,” The Cats were victorious. While performing at a local festival, a cool, plump cat approached the band about becoming its lead singer, and that cat was Ruben Studdard. With the addition of the Big Cat’s silky-smooth voice and powerful stage presence, the band became a local sensation within Birmingham and surrounding areas. As a newly evolved R&B and Soul band

Just A Few Cats claimed their spot as the hottest new band in the 205. Then in January of 2003, their lead singer, Ruben, went off to Hollywood to eventually become the second American Idol. After Ruben’s victory, Alvin “Cornbread” Garrett joined Ruben on the American Idol 2 Tour as the bass guitarist. Shortly after the tour, the two joined back up with the rest of The Cats and hit the road. With Cornbread as the music director and the band as the supporting cast, Ruben showcased his performance abilities to the world. Now after two years of being the supporting cast for Ruben, Just A Few Cats has stepped their game up with their own debut album, CATastrophunk.
