Slim & Meaux Jeaux shout out in Huffington Post!
Right before Kat Edmonson broke out as the world-renowned singer/songwriter, spokesmodel, ACL TV show performing treasure that she is, she sang in a little ‘ole band in Austin, Texas called “The Kat’s Meow” with Slim Richey & Francie Meaux Jeaux from The Jitterbug Vipers. They still perform the occasional private event together. Kat gave a lovely mention of their band in her recent Love letter to Austin, Texas in The Huffington Post.
“Austin…….Being with you opened my eyes to people delightful and extraordinary. Decked out in glitter sunglasses, a Hawaiian shirt, and black and white Oxfords, the wonderful guitar player Slim Richey stopped me and asked if I were in a band. When I told him no, he asked if I wanted to be in one. So, just like that, Slim, his wife Meaux Jeaux, and I started Kat’s Meow. We played anywhere we could get a crowd, and sometimes we played just for a good meal. But that’s the way you do things isn’t it?”
