Event Description

Bruce Katz’s resume reads like a who’s who of blues and blues-rock. Playing piano and Hammond B3 organ, Katz has toured and recorded with the Greg Allman Band, Delbert McClinton, Maria Muldaur, Ronnie Earl & the Broadcasters, among numerous others. While blues remains his core influence, Katz’s music occupies a unique space where blues, soul-jazz, jam-band rock, and all aspects of Americana collide into a style of original music all his own. “Homecoming,” the new recording by the Bruce Katz Band, features songs and instrumentals including guest appearances by guitarists John Hammond and Jimmy Bennett and drummer Randy Ciarlante. 


 


"This man is as good as it gets. One of the greatest keyboard artists I’ve ever heard." 


-John Hammond


 


"Now that’s a piano player."


-Pinetop Perkins


 


"He can play jazz, blues, Bach, anything. Man he’s a heavy!"


-Gregg Allman


 


"The Bruce Katz Band’s music has the air of unflagging tradition yet it blurs the lines between genres. It is of itself and beyond itself at the same time. It’s like Mozart with a jazz trio playing at Junior’s Juke Joint on a Thursday night. There’s no name for it and it doesn’t really need one. At a recent show, Bruce was heard to say, several times, that “It’s all Blues.” I think we can go with that."


-Jim Kanavy - Blues Biscuits
