Bryan Lee & Six String Therapy
The Bruce Katz Band

The Bradfordville Blues Club

-- by Kim Anton & Walter Potter while Gary heals

Bryan Lee & Six String Therapy - Friday February 17th at 9:00 PM.
Lee completely lost his eyesight by the age of eight. His avid interest in early rock and blues was fostered through the 1950s by late night listening sessions via the Nashville-based radio station WLAC-AM, where he first encountered the sounds of Elmore James, Albert King and Albert Collins.

By his late teens, Lee was playing rhythm guitar in a regional band called The Glaciers that covered Elvis Presley, Little Richard and Chuck Berry material. Through the 1960s, Lee's interest turned to Chicago blues and he soon found himself immersed in that scene, opening for some of his boyhood heroes. In 1979 he released his first album named Beauty Isn't Always Visual.

In January 1982, Lee moved to New Orleans, eventually landing a steady gig at the Old Absinthe House on Bourbon Street becoming a favorite of tourists in the city's French Quarter. For the next 14 years, Lee and his Jump Street Five played five nights a week at that popular bar, developing a huge following and a solid reputation.

Today Lee continues to perform in New Orleans. He also tours several times a year in the Midwest, Eastern Seaboard, Rocky Mountain States and recently Europe and Brazil. Lee appeared with Kenny Wayne Shepherd as the musical guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on February 14, 2007.

The Bruce Katz Band - Saturday, February 18th at 9:00 PM
Katz began playing classical piano at the age of 5. He commenced his professional musical career playing piano and bass guitar with various bands in Baltimore. He then decided to concentrate on piano and Hammond organ, and in particular, jazz and blues music. After studying music at the Berklee College of Music and playing primarily jazz in Boston, he got the opportunity to play bass guitar for Big Mama Thornton. This reconnected him with his love of the blues, which has been his main musical genre since that time. From that band, Katz moved on to play with Barrence Whitfield and the Savages. While in this band, Katz had the opportunity to tour all over Europe and the U.S., playing clubs, festivals and making television appearances.

From Barrence Whitfield and the Savages, Katz moved on to playing organ and piano as well as writing and co-writing material for Ronnie Earl and the Broadcasters.[1] By this time, Katz had been on several different recording sessions with the bands he had played with as well as special guesting on sessions for other artists.

While with Ronnie Earl, Katz had not only formed his own band and began recording on the Sledgehammer Blues (formerly AudioQuest Music) label but was still maintaining the touring schedule with the Broadcasters. After leaving the Broadcasters in 1997 to concentrate on the Bruce Katz Band, Katz has maintained his own touring schedule, and released a total of seven albums, while also recording and touring with many other artists, such as Delbert McClinton, Duke Robillard, Joe Louis Walker, Debbie Davies, David "Fathead" Newman, John Hammond and others.

From 2007 to 2013, Katz was a regular member of Gregg Allman and Friends, In 2011 he joined Delbert McClinton's Band and continues to play with him, Delbert McClinton until 2014. He continues to play with John Hammond on occasion. New side projects have Katz performing with Allman Brothers founding member Butch Trucks in two different groups - Butch Trucks and the Freight Train Band and Les Brers, a band that contains 5 members of the Allman Brothers Band and Katz on keyboards, Lamar Williams Jr. on vocals and Pat Bergeson on guitar, in addition to Butch Trucks, Jaimoe, Marc Quinones, Oteil Burbridge on bass and Jack Pearson on guitar.

In October, 2014, Katz released a new Bruce Katz Band album, "Homecoming" on the American Showplace Musiclabel. This album featured guests John Hammond, Randy Ciarlante, Jimmy Bennett, Marty Ballou, Peter Bennett and is the first Bruce Katz Band album to feature vocal tunes as well as instrumental tunes. "Homecoming" received critical and popular acclaim, garnering radio play in the U.S. and worldwide, appearing at the top of Blues Radio charts. In 2016 he released another album on the American Showplace Music label called "Out From The Center". This album was The Bruce Katz Band featuring Chris Vitarello, who has played with the band since 2006. Vitarello co-wrote several tunes on the Cd and sings four tunes. "Out From The Center" reached #1 on the Roots Music Report Blues Radio Chart. The Bruce Katz Band continues to be Katz's primary focus at present.
