THE QUARRY CATS:
NINA AND THE QUARRY CATS - Nina Romanenko performed with long time friend and music mentor, Kent Aldrich on first guitar and Nina's husband Mike Harrison on bass for several years. A hand injury prevents Mike from playing the bass now - but he's still part of the scene by roadying at gigs and Kent still makes appearances with Nina. Lots of fun and laughter along with great original and old timey tunes.
