After many years of booking shows and working in clubs and bars in Houston this couple decided to take it to the next level.
Big E (Edgar) has been booking live music in Houston for the last 15 years; his love for music, culture, and lifestyle is the main reason he has decided to open Big Kat’s. This Kat has made the Contiental Club (Houston) his home. What a better place to open a shop then on the block right next to the club in which he has spent much of his life. “ These people are my family” Big E states "without their support for all these years, none of this would be possible."
Crissy Salazar (Big E’s wife) has been going to his shows for the last 10 years. She loves any and all things vintage claiming “It’s a lifestyle, not just clothes."
Big E has always had the dream of opening an old school barbershop combined with a tattoo parlor, but never thought it would come together. After discussing with wife Crissy and several close friends they thought adding Vintage inspired salon to E's concept would make the perfect addition to the Main Street block they all love.
The couple’s goal for the shop is to offer an old school feel with updated services. “We want this to be THE spot. A place you come to hang out even if you don’t need a cut or color”.
