San Diego Reader Review

Cathouse Rules By: Dave Good September 2012 A short reprieve: today does not actually mark the end of summer. Actually, summer concludes on September 22, according to Will Faeber. That’s the day he and his band Cathouse Thursday host what he calls the official End of Summer party. They’ve been doing it for years. He’d like to extend an invitation. Technically, it is a house concert. Just find him on Facebook, he says, and tell him you’re coming. The name alone might convince a reader that Cathouse Thursday is an Americana-tinged country rock band. What it won’t reveal is that it was inspired, in part, by the collapse of jazz. “I toured with Steve, son of Stan Getz,” the famed tenor sax man, Will Faeber says. The younger...

San Diego Troubadour Review

CATHOUSE THURSDAY: Walking My Elephant By Richard James, August 2012 Twelve years ago Will Faeber returned to San Diego after spending some time in Europe where he enjoyed a successful hit record called No Small Comfort. Back in the States he signed a record deal that quickly went sour and the subsequent lawsuit dragged on for years. In the meantime, Faeber and his friend John DePatie surrounded themselves with the finest musicians they knew and set about recording what would become Walking My Elephant. Shelved for over a decade, the project was finally released earlier this year. Though there is undoubtedly a calculated silliness to grown men playing Rock ‘n’ Roll, this is not your weird uncle’s garage band. Faeber and company have crafted a...

Indie Music Reviews

Cathouse Thursday Could San Diego be the next Nashville? Could San Diego be the next Nashville? Highly doubtful, but for those wishing to have some good ol blues, rock and country music in Sunny Southern California, look no further Cathouse Thursday is here to make you feel as though you’re living in the country side. Fronted by film-maker, producer, and writer Will Faeber whom has been compared to legendary vocalist Mark Miller. Not to be out shined by the lead vocalist, the rest of the band has a superb talent for being able to play all styles of music. The city and country life mixed together has enabled the band to take hold of the opportunity to cook up something rare. With songs like “Nashville Baby” any country girl might feel as though the...

Will Faeber Interview

A little bit of Nashville right here in San Diego… This month, our featured artist is the kind of act that makes you go, “ahhhhh!” At least that describes one of the many feelings that I had the very first time that I met Will Faeber and the guys of Cathouse Thursday. I really think that these guys are ready for the Big Arenas! The harmonies in this band are so tight that you think you are watching a bunch of people lip syncing to an audio track, but the truth is that they are the real deal. (We know that long ago, people did not have that luxury and were forced to be talented, and work hard to perfect their craft!. A lesson for the next generation of musicians!) I wanted to feature Will because he and his team are definitely on the “must see”...

Another Cathouse Thursday Review

A really good band is the sum of all its parts, and front man Will Faeber knows this. Lead guitarist, John DePatie, is a perfect fit. I have the feeling that John can play lead on almost anything with style, grace and high energy. This level of dexterity is key in Cathouse, for although they are country to the core, they often cross over into blues and rock areas. Will Faeber’s rich baritone voice has a classic (old school) country sound to it. It is obvious that the great country singers with which he grew up with in Kentucky have influenced him. In the song “Nashville Baby”, a song about a girl growing up in Nashville, I get an autobiographical vibe. In the story of the baby, she spends her childhood listening to country music and then goes on...
