“Our audiences were delighted by their high spirits and terrific musicianship...They brought swing and edge and color to our festival”  
Champlain Valley Folk Festival  

“Lots of people can play swing, but these guys bring it alive with engaging improvisation”  
Valley Advocate 

The Catalytics are six musicians with backgrounds in Jazz, Swing, Latin, R&B, Bluegrass, Reggae, Country and Blues. 

 Our unique sound is drawn from a variety of styles including early "traditional" jazz, Gypsy swing, French cabaret songs, country, blues, folk and compelling originals by Ellington, Strayhorn, Jobim, Django, Monroe and more. 

The result is fun, upbeat music that we enjoy performing together and appeals to all ages.
