"In 1992, I got a phone call from my friend, Eric McSpadden. He asked me if I would be interested in joining his band, Mojo Syndrome, as a vocalist and guitarist. I had heard the band perform many times and I thought they had a good sound and played the blues with feeling and conviction. I accepted his offer, and, as they say, the rest is history. We've been playing music together now for over 13 years.

About 10 years ago, we started performing as an acoustic duo or trio called Willie and the Bluecats. We've performed at every type of venue you could imagine: corporate dinners in hotel ballrooms, blues festivals, TV and radio spots, honky tonks, juke joints, wineries, concerts in the park, biker bars, martini bars, fine dining establishments, wedding receptions, happy hours, private parties. Music is our passion and we've been lucky enough to make it our life's work. We live in a city with a thriving live music scene and a very deep and strong connection to the blues."
-- Larry Griffin --


Our music falls under the umbrella of American Roots Music (that means it's old), traditional country, folk, gospel, and a real strong dose of the blues. Our goal was, and remains, to keep it simple: acoustic guitar, harmonica, vocals, and percussion.

This new release "TROUBLE NO MORE" covers the spectrum of music that has influenced us and includes an original song dedicated to my father, the late Rayford Lee Griffin, who taught me that action speaks louder than words.
