Bruce Katz Band Returning to Tour Across Florida in February 2018

Get Out for Some
Musical Fun and Sun!

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

"One of the most respected keyboardists on the
blues circuit."  Wade Tatangelo, HERALD-TRIBUNE

Bruce Katzrenowned Hammond B-3 organist/keyboardist, four-time Blues Music Award nominee and New York Blues Hall of Fame inductee, and his Bruce Katz Band, embark on their 'Soak Up The Sun' Tour, with destinations across the Sunshine State with Florida dates starting February 2, 2018.

While Blues remains a core influence, Katz’s music has more angles and influences, occupying a unique space where blues, "soul-jazz", jam-band rock, and all aspects of Americana Music collide into a style of original music all his own. He is equally comfortable playing Hammond B-3 organ and Piano, encompassing historical styles as well as current ideas.  Bruce has an original sound and style all his own. 

In addition to leading the Bruce Katz Band, Katz has performed with the Delbert McClinton Band, Ronnie Earl, Jaimoe's Jasssz Band, and John Hammond, the latter whom he still plays with on occasion. Katz brought his cool 'jam-band' sounds last Summer to, among others, Riverfront Fest, Roots Rhythm & Blues Fest, Big Buggs Island Blues Bash (headliner), and famed BB King's Blues Club in New York City. Katz - a member of the Gregg Allman Band from 2007-2013 - also continues to tour as a member of Les Brers, featuring former members of the Allman Brothers, and was a full-time member of Butch Trucks and the Freight Train, fronted by the legendary ex-Allman Bros. drummer who passed away a year ago January.

"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."   BLUES BISCUITS

"Bruce Katz and his men gave those present a concert they’ll remember a long time. Vitarello is an outstanding guitarist, with an astonishing technique and a broad creative range."  ROOTSTIME
