A festive feline comes to Catman Boogie this Christmas!
With Christmas well and truly here, Catman Boogie has had a little makeover! You may have noticed our furry friend making the rounds, so we thought we should introduce him properly -
Meet ‘The Catman’!
We’ve wanted a mascot for our company for a long time, but we could never find one that quite fit in with the company. Suddenly, on December 1st, we found a little bundle of matted fur outside the front door of Catman Boogie HQ. We took him in, got him a nice hot bath and a cup of tea and he’s been here ever since! It’s not a perfect arrangement, by any means – he has a bit of a foul mouth and can’t quite seem to kick his 20 a day catnip cigarette habit, but we love him to pieces nonetheless.
So if you see our furry friend around online, on social media, or on the front of one of our vehicles, give him a cheeky wink and wave!
After joining the Catman Boogie team as a media producer in early 2019, Samuel has taken on the role of Head of Production for our media division. We are really excited to see how his artistic vision will impact the operation of all of our companies within the Catman Boogie group.
After a career as a media freelancer, Samuel has immediately felt right at home at our headquarters in Essex – it was only a few weeks before he had brought his espresso machine to work with him!
“It’s a dream come true to have been asked to be the Head of Production at Catman Boogie Media, I’m thrilled to be a part of such an exciting group of companies. There’s so much variety in what I do on a day-to-day basis: one moment I could be producing social media marketing designs, and then the next I could be on an international call with musicians in the US regarding a documentary project. Having such close collaboration with our music and events divisions is an amazing way to work, it means that we all feel enormously connected to whatever project we’re all working on.”
Catman Boogie Media has grown from a subsidiary company providing media services internally to the Catman Boogie Group into a fully fledged media production house specialising in live music event video and photography, recording session promotional films, graphic design including posters and brochures, as well music videos and documentaries.
2020 is poised to see large expansion from all the companies within the Catman Boogie Group – however, as the UK’s Small-to-Medium Enterprise sector adapts to marketing in the information age, Catman Boogie Media is well positioned to become a key provider of media in Essex.

The studio boasts with some of the best equipment around for these instruments. The studio has recently been re-wired allowing all three rooms over two studios to now be used as one studio, so we can record larger live band situations allowing total isolation from each instrument.
