Feed The Kitty may just be the hardest working band in Southern California, if not the world. Performing over 300 shows a year, these guys can do it all, anything goes with FTK. Having an arsenal of thousands of songs, versatility is the name of the game for this band as they can provide a wide variety of quality live music to fit almost any occasion. Originally from Tucson AZ, band members Jed Mottley (Bass) and Jon Shumway (Drums) moved to Los Angeles and hooked up with Jack Maher (Guitar/Vocals) in 2004. Since then, Feed The Kitty has enjoyed plenty of musical success with no signs of stopping anytime soon. In fact, if you've seen the movies "Lars and the Real Girl" or "National Lampoon's: Cattle Call" you've already heard Feed The Kitty's music on their respective soundtracks! Recently, Feed The Kitty completed a short documentary about the band, having a film crew (Kenny Stoff , "Sound City", "Sonic Highways") follow them for one week as they played 9 gigs in 6 days fresh off their first ever European tour.
