Mitch Woods And His Rocket 88S

May 28, 2017
4:30 am
Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society

Mitch Woods and his Rocket 88s have been the torchbearers of a great American blues musical heritage for over two decades. Taking their inspiration from the great jump n' boogie outfits of the late 40s and early 50s, they breathe fresh life into the music that gave birth to rock n' roll. Woods styled his group after the bands of Louis Jordan, Wynonie Harris, Joe and Jimmy Liggins, Amos Milburn, and Roy Milton. Adding a healthy dose of New Orleans rhythm and blues, piledrivin' piano, and some of his own contemporary playful lyrics, Woods and his Rocket 88s forge their own brand of music they call "rock-a-boogie." NOTE: we clear the chairs at intermission; second set is a dance concert! Mitch Woods - Piano/vocals; TBD - Sax; TBD - Trumpet; TBD - Trombone; TBD - Guitar; TBD - Bass; TBD -Drums
