Black Cats are a popular Los Angeles based Persian pop group founded and produced by Shahbal Shabpareh. The group was originally formed in 1960s Tehran as a rock outfit with members Hassan Shamaizadeh, Shahram Shabpareh, Farhad Mehrad and Shahbal Shabpareh[1][2] before being reborn in 1990s Los Angeles as a pop group. While band members and singers changed frequently over the next two decades, Shabpareh has consistently remained the group's manager and producer.[3][4][5]
