Zamcheck was managed by impresario Steve Sesnick, who was known as manager of the Velvet Underground. Zamcheck disbanded in 1976.

Cate then worked house sound and stage management at Paul's Mall/Jazz Workshop in Boston, with artists such as Little River Band, Pat Metheny, BB King, Muddy Waters, Robert Palmer and others.

In 1995, Cate met Paul Candilore, who has served as Cate's musical foil and often as 1/2 of the production team. Cate & Candilore first formed the van Gogh Brothers as their production partnership, as a reference to each having "one good ear." Now the van Gogh Brothers encompass Cate's full band lineup.
