Age Limit: 21 and Over Matt 'n Kat form an eclectic, unique duo that combines the talents of singer-songwriter Matt Gross and vocalist Kathryn Kitt. Matt's is considered by his fans as the "Musical Miracle." He was the founding member, vocalist and songwriter of a 90s rock group, The Bushpilots. The group formed in Denmark and after major success in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and at the White Nights Festival in St. Petersburg, Russia – where his song "I Want to Spank You, Girl" won Best Song and the Bushpilots were named Best New Band – Matt and the group resettled in the US in 1996, developing an enthusiastic fan base and playing to sold-out venues in New York City. But in 1997, the band was devastated by a lone gunman who started firing a semiautomatic handgun at visitors on the observation deck of the Empire State Building, killing the band's lead guitarist and shooting Matt through his head. Matt was given little chance of surviving the night.
