Bio

Bruce Katz is a legendary keyboardist (Hammond B3 and piano) who has released 7 CDs as a leader and has appeared on nearly 70 other CDs with the likes of John Hammond, Delbert McClinton, Ronnie Earl, Duke Robillard, Little Milton, Joe Louis Walker, David "Fathead" Newman, and many, many others. He was also a member of Gregg Allman's band for six years (2007-2013) and toured with the Allman Brothers as well.

He is a four time BMA nominee (2008, 2009, 2010 and 2015) for the "Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year" award, which is the equivalent of the "Blues Grammys".

His new CD, "Homecoming" (American Showplace Music) was released in November 2014 and features his band as well as guests John Hammond, Randy Ciarlante, Jimmy Bennett among others. It explores his personal, wide-ranging scope of blues, and includes six vocal tunes, in addition to Bruce's instrumental originals.

The Bruce Katz Band is an original, very exciting group of musicians that combine blues, "soul-jazz", and New Orleans inspired roots music. Based in Woodstock, NY, Bruce Katz occupies a unique space where blues and the many aspects of Americana music collide into a style of original music all his own. The band has a trademark sound, blending the B3 organ and guitar in unique and inventive ways.

The Bruce Katz Band is:

Bruce Katz - Hammond B3 organ and piano
Chris Vitarello - guitar/vocals
Ralph Rosen - drums/vocals

"He can play jazz, blues, Bach, anything. Man, he's a heavy!"
- Gregg Allman

"This man is as good as it gets. One of the greatest
keyboard artists I've ever heard"
-John Hammond

"Homecoming, a new CD by Bruce Katz is pure genius! Buy it and put it in your ear. You can thank me later."
-Delbert McClinton

"Now, that's a piano player!
- Pinetop Perkins
