In the summer of 2012, at a rehearsal studio on the Holloway Road, all five members first came together to form a band around lead singer, Katie Coleman, to perform her original material and start gigging around the London circuit.
During the rehearsals, the band would play around with some of their favourite songs, mainly from the soul, funk, disco and RnB genres and just enjoy playing music. After playing such venues as the jazz cafe, Ronnie Scotts and various other well known venues in and around town, the band decided that they loved playing their favourite songs so much that they wanted to start throwing a few of them into the Katie Coleman set. Realising how well they were received, the next step was to start a band where they could just play the songs they loved. From disco, soul to RnB and modern chart music, The Alleycatz are becoming one of Londons go to party bands.
