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.
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

Bruce Katz Band

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. 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.
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.
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.
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.
