The Owners are Dante Ferrando (Gray Matter, Ignition), Catherine Ferrando, Al Budd (The Shirks), and Laura Harris (Ex Hex, The Aquarium). The Ferrandos have owned and operated the Black Cat since it opened in 1993, Al Budd and Laura have both been behind the bar for more than 20 years. Although they have worked together and seen each other perform for many years, it wasn't until the pandemic hit and the club had to put a hold on shows that they thought to get together and play. The result is one of the most fun new bands in DC.
