CC & W (Cactus Cate & Whiskers) is a psycho-billy, alt-country-western, rock experience of love, lust and abandonment.

Rick DiBello (aka Cactus Cate): composer-vocalist-guitarist, Alethea Bodine (aka Whiskers): bass-vocalist, Medicine Man: Pedal Steel and Bobby The Kid: Drums.

"Undenyably undefinable!! DiBello's explosive & intricate guitar work takes this from a simple Alt Country experience to a musical joyride of Rock God caliber!"
- Christine Volk:

"Tracy & Hepburn, Burns & Allen, Astaire & Rodgers - great couples of the entertainment world. Erie's answer? DiBello & Bodine. Between them, the two cover all of the performing arts, from dance to theatre and music, both vocal and instrumental. DiBello & Bodine continue to stretch the limits of performance with their abstractions in music and movement."
- Su Harrington: Erie Times News

"A lively DUO that proves that artistically 'less is more', a contemporary weaving of  punk, rock, and cowboy rhythm and blues. They stage a performance that entertains as well satisfies one's musical hunger. CC & W are Bad to the bone, baby"
