I had a plan and that is where it ended....

If these people had the plan to be famous - the plan did not end
The cat empire: 2 years ago fairly unknown in Europe, they now sold out the Paradiso in Amsterdam twice
The Cat Empire is a band from Melbourne, Australia. Currently, they are composed of Felix Riebl (percussion and vocals), Harry James Angus (trumpet and vocals),
Ollie McGill (keyboard and backing vocals), Ryan Monro (bass and backing vocals), Will Hull-Brown (drums) and Jamshid "Jumps" Khadiwhala (decks, percussion). They are also commonly backed by the Empire Horns, a brass duo
They met when well-known Melbourne jazz identity Steve Sedergreen decided to form, mentor and develop a group of very talented young musicians from different schools and backgrounds.
The band was called 'Jazz Cat' and had its debut at the Manly Jazz Festival in Sydney in 1999.

The Cat Empire, originally a three-piece, grew out of Jazz Cat

Their sound is often described as a fusion of jazz, ska, funk and rock with heavy Latin influences.

The band's name was taken from the title of a drawing by Felix Riebl's younger brother, Max, and its distinctive cat's eye icon, which is also known as "Pablo", was created by Ian McGill, Ollie McGill's father.
And the support band: Timpan Orange
also from Australia

who are a fantastic life band
and, of course, the Paradiso, one of the greatest places to hear music
