Kitty & The Rooster is a rock n' roll duo from Vancouver, BC featuring Jodie Ponto banging on the cocktail kit and East Van guitar wizard Noah Walker. They are known for their surf-tastic hooks, clever lyrics, and ridiculously fun shows. New album One Gig Hard Drive coming September 2018.




Take the name Kitty and the Rooster, and combine it with the fact guitarist Noah Walker and drummer Jodie Ponto wear chicken and cat masks in their promo shots, and one might expect a barnyard version of Slipknot. Wrong. Because those things can be sweaty under stage lights, the masks tend to come off quickly as the duo unleashes a retro-spectacular sound that slots in nicely with Southern Culture on the Skids, Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, and the Reverend Horton Heat. Those who like a serving of politics with their country-fried goodness will want to muscle their way to the front of the stage for the ode to local real-estate idiocy that is “Paid a Million Dollars (To Live Like You’re Poor)”—a song that might as well be modern Vancouver’s municipal anthem
— The Georgia Straight


Noah has played guitar all over the world, from Turkey to Tokyo and Dawson City to New York City. He is a longtime collaborator with underground legend C.R. Avery and is a busy sideman/secret weapon of countless other bands.


Jodie is a drummer and photographer who creates all Kitty & The Rooster's masked photos. Previously, she spent 4 years touring non-stop with all-girl rock n' rollers Miss Quincy & The Showdown as the band's manager/photographer.
