Catz N Dogz Interview

Catz N Dogz

Members:  Grzegorz and Wojciech or Greg and Voitek

We spoke with Voitek over in Berlin from Catz N Dogz for their Detroit appearance. Catz n Dogz filled the upper level of  Sinbads on the Marina earlier in September. Thankfully the venue had a porch because the floor was packed with dancers. Catz n Dogz has that “housey” sound that Detroiters love.

If you missed their performance check out their music on the Catz n Dogz Soundcloud
