The Beau Cats is a pop/rock trio with a "bodacious classy sound" that blends elements of classic rock, folk, country rock, a bit of southern soul and, on occasion, a generous portion of Latin flavor. While each band member has his/her own personal favorites, they were all greatly influenced by The Beatles, Steely Dan, Todd Rundgren, Utopia and The Jazz Crusaders.

The band members are:
Bob McDowell - guitar, lead & harmony vocals
Sandra Lacy - keyboards, keyboard bass, lead & harmony vocals
Gil Linares - drums, lead & harmony vocals

If you're interested to learn more about each member's influences, musical preferences and experience go to
Band Member Bios page.


Their album "Style" was released in December of 2014 and is available for purchase on and at live performances.  You can hear preview clips of the 12 songs from the album on our Music page. From there you can link to The Beau Cats page on to purchase the album or any combination of individual songs.

When the group is not writing and recording their own music they can be found playing at a wide array of venues in the northeast Florida area.  The Beau Cats are regularly featured entertainers at several northeast Florida venues and dance clubs.  You can find out where they'll be playing next and what the band and/or band members are up to on the Schedule page.
