"This man is as good as it gets. One of the greatest keyboard artists I’ve ever heard." - John Hammond
After the long shutdown The Bruce Katz Band returned to touring in 2021, playing 18 cities on two tours last summer. We returned to Florida on another Sunshine tour in October, I want to thank all our fans for coming out and supporting us in these weird times.
This year, Liviu Pop joined the band as our drummer. He brings with him a flare all his own and was welcomed as a new addition to the band. We had the pleasure of playing in Europe in November in Denmark, The Netherlands and in The Czech Republic, and it was fantastic to be able to bring my music back overseas.
I have been teaching, recording and writing music. I was fortunate to have taught 1,000 students in Iowa, about the blues, just before the lockdown, and I look forward to more educational projects and working with schools and educators around the country.
I was nominated in 2020 for my acoustic solo piano album “Solo Ride”, and I was up for the Blues Music Award “Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year“ for 2021. I want to thank all of you who voted for me and continue to support my musical endeavors.
We are planning many more tours and shows in 2022, The Bruce Katz Band will be at the Tampa Bay Blues Fest in April and returning to Europe several times this year. Watch the calendar for updates!
