Our recent studio album, recorded in Goshen, Connecticut during the spring of 2015, is as bold as the name suggests. The Gamble features ten brand new arrangements and four classics, including “Take Me to Church,” “A Bridge Over Troubled Water,” ”Till There Was You,” and many more that you don’t want to miss.
The Very Best of...
Our repertoire, hundreds of songs arranged by current and former Alley Cats, reflects our tradition and diversity. Over our 70 year history, the song book has grown to include everything from the Temptations and Stevie Wonder to Justin Timberlake and Taylor Swift. We perform these songs while staying true to our roots in the standards of the American Songbook from the likes of Ellington, Gershwin, and Porter. This collection represents just a selection of some of our favorites.
