Famous troupe of touring performing house cats comes to NoHo
The Amazing Acro-cats featuring Tuna and the Rock Cats are a troupe of touring performing house cats. This one-of-a-kind, two hour purrformance features talented domesticated house cats that roll on balls, ride skateboards, jump through hoops, and more!
The finale is the only all-cat band in the entire world – Tuna and the Rock Cats! The current band lineup features Nola on guitar, Asti on drums, Nue on keyboard, and some brand new members: Ahi on woodblocks and Albacore on cowbell, Buggles on trumpet, and Oz on Saxophone. There is even a chicken – Cluck Norris – rockin’ the tambourine!
“I can die happy now!” at least one audience member has claimed after seeing the band.
It all started with Chief Executive Human (or CEH for short) and cat lover Samantha Martin. Training animals at a young age, she knew instantly she would be working with animals for the rest of her life. By founding Rock Cats Rescue, the real reason behind having a traveling animal show, she has saved the lives of over 215 cats and kittens.
Using the magic of clicker training, Samantha (and a few other humans) travel with over 15 cats and kittens all across the U.S., educating and entertaining audiences to prove that cats actually can be trained. Currently recovering from stage 3 cancer, she tenaciously continues to save the lives of cats and kittens through rescue, foster, and adoption.
Featured on national TV including the 2019 Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet, Tuna and the Rock Cats purrformed the half-time honors!
