Groovin' in Greasland (2017)
Alligator Records

Estrin and his celebrated band of virtuosos present another infectious collection of whip-smart blues, filled with crafty songwriting and exceptional musicianship.  The songs are delightfully wily and warped lyrically, effortlessly tight and playful musically. Thirteen fresh originals ride Estrin’s powerhouse harmonica and “hard-luck sandwich on wry” lyrics and the Nightcats’ wild guitar, soul-deep organ and greasy grooves.

“Powerful, rollicking and magical…virtuoso harp, wildly eccentric guitar, sly, streetwise vocals and great songs”  – Blues & Rhythm

First-ever live release from one of the tightest, hardest-touring bands in American roots music.  Features a host of Rick Estrin classics, including "Dump That Chump", "My Next Ex-Wife", "Clothes Line" and more, plus a new song and a sparkling rendition of Sonny Boy Williamson’s "Too Close Together".  An instant party starter.

One Wrong Turn

One Wrong Turn (2012)
Alligator Records

Packed with wry, irreverent songs brought to life by electrifying performances, as Estrin and The Nightcats shift effortlessly from the jaunty tiki-rock of "D.O.G." to the deranged surf music splendor of "The Legend Of Taco Cobbler", not to mention the uproarious send-up "(I Met Her On The) Blues Cruise".

"Hugely entertaining, wickedly cool blues and roots rock with a twist...masterful harmonica." - Living Blues
