April 05, 2017: Happy 1st Anniversary!!

Happy 1st Anniversary to!!!!

Wow, it's hard to believe that it has been one year since we launched and what a ride it has been! Just as the Black Cats NYC started out as a concept that evolved into a full fledged Rock n' Roll band, started out as a tiny spark that caught fire and became the hub to everything Black Cats NYC. It has been a trial by fire and we are constantly tweaking and reworking the site to make sure it's an easy and pleasant experience for all of you to interact with the band.

One year is a milestone we look back on proudly, just getting this site off the ground was a challenge in that it was the first time we attempted something of this magnitude. We saw this through, start to finish, pretty much on our own and are happy with the final result. We will always look to improve this site and in the coming months we will try to offer fresh, exciting, and original ways for you, our fans, to connect with the band.

the Black Cats NYC offer our sincerest gratitude for your support and want to celebrate this milestone with you. After all, without you, all of this would not be possible! We look ahead to the future and as always thanks for "Coming Along for the Ride!"

the Black Cats NYC are shocked and deeply saddened to learn that our ol' pal Sandy Lynx passed away in May of 2016. Sandy was Lead Vocalist in The Dragons and Co-Founder/ Bassist in Vampire.

Sandy was a great friend and a great band mate. He was truly a wonderful down to earth person who had a terrific sense of humor and demeanor, he always wore a smile.

Rest in peace pal, we will always have you and your family in our prayers.

R.I.P. Sandy "the Sandman" Lynx 1954 -2016

We want to thank Lorne Behrman of The Sweet Things for his review of the Black Cats NYC EP "Gone!"

Lorne also is a freelance publicity, advertising, and branding copywriter whose music criticism has been featured on MTV and appeared in The Village Voice, The Boston Phoenix, SPIN, Guitar World, Alternative Press, and CMJ New Music Monthly.
