Bruce Katz

Bruce Katz occupies a unique space where blues, jazz, rock, soul, and the many aspects of Americana all collide into a style of original instrumental music all his own. He is as comfortable playing "soul-jazz" on the Hammond organ as he is playing 1930's style stride piano or the meanest slow blues. Besides leading the Bruce Katz Band, Bruce is currently playing regularly with Gregg Allman, John Hammond, The Organiks and performing with other artists as well. Bruce was also honored as a 2008 Nominee for the Blues Music Award for "Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year", selected by the Blues Foundation. Over the past twenty five years, Bruce has been an in-demand sideman as well as leading his own band

The calendar's got plenty of reasons to party--Christmas, New Year's Eve, or (for college students) the odd Tuesday that needs freshening up. It's only logical that parties need party music, so here are three “musical guests," all ...
