Armstrong Bearcat

July 3, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Over the years they have warmed up the stage for Albert Collins, George Thorogood, Johnny Winter, ZZ Top, Blue Oyster Cult, Robin Trower, Leslie West, Robby Krieger, Rick Derringer, Humble Pie, The Kinsey Report, Danny Gatton, John Mayall, Savoy Brown, Kansas, Son Seals, Dr. hook, David Allen Coe, the Clarence Gatemouth Brown, Tinsley Ellis, Steven Seagal and a host of others too numerous to name.

Often they have the crowd jumping to their feet and dancing in the aisles before the main act even appears (and many times get better reviews, too.)

Armstrong Bearcat’s opening set for the Marshall Tucker Band prompted one reviewer to make the comparison that the trio had “half the musicians but twice the talent.”

Opening at Nautica for Little Feat, Butch Armstrong’s rendition of the signature tune “Mr. Cleanhead” had headliner Sam Clayton “sitting on the side stage looking stunned, but happy.” The tune, a tip of the hat to Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, often inspires Armstrong to jump from the stage and get his clean-shaven head stroked by the throng of adoring women that crowd around him.
