Little Charlie Baty to Retire –

Charles Baty founder and guitar wizard of Little Charlie & The Nightcats, has decided to enter into “soft” retirement after the band’s March run in Europe. Little Charlie & The Nights was formed 32 years ago when Rick Estrin joined Little Charlie Baty in 1976. The band recorded ten albums for Alligator Records and has been one of the most in demand a consistent draws on the touring circuit. Rick Estrin will be pursuing his own projects, most likely to include current Nightcats Jay Hanson and Lorenzo Farrell. More news about Rick’s projects will be forthcoming.

Little Charlie’s “soft” retirement does not preclude future dates together, as they are still available for overseas tours, blues cruises and very select North American festivals.”
