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 long purrformance features talented domesticated house cats rolling on balls, riding skateboards, jumping 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 NOW 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!” an audience member has claimed after seeing the band.

Featured on national TV shows like the 2016 Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet, Tuna and the Rock Cats purrformed the half-time honors! Their most recent national appearance was on Adult Swim.
