“Sarah Clay and the StarCats have smooth grooves, great solos and a fun theme for every show."  -Matt Atwood, Dickinson Memorial Library 

When the StarCats play, it's more than just a jazz gig, it's a concertwith custom arrangements, exquisite tone, and a thoughtful playlist. 

“I just have to say again how much I enjoyed your concert last night. I wish I had your jazz chops -- so refined. And I loved the variety of selections. Your band members are also fantastic, lucky you!” 
– Lola Reid, enthusiastic audience member

Each year, the StarCats create a new themed  concert, a coherent program that is both informative and entertaining. Between songs, I might tell the audience about an aspect of the composer's life, popular culture or history of the time, or relate something funny. Have fun while you learn new stuff!

 

“Huge stage presence. The crowd loved it. Two weeks later I am still hearing people comment about Sarah's presentation.”  – Desi Smelcer, South Hadley Public Library 

 

Each annual concert program explores a concept or evokes a mood. We select and research songs to fit the theme, using a wide variety of sources.

 

“The music was gorgeous, and the stories were fascinating! Really made the songs come alive!” - Mike Jones, a happy audience member
