Show Info

Jump and jive to piano master Mitch Woods and His Rocket 88s’ unique brand of “rock-a-boogie”. Live at Fenix. Taking inspiration from the great jump n’ boogie outfits of the late ’40s and early ’50s, piano master Mitch Woods and His Rocket 88s breathe fresh life into the music that gave birth to rock ‘n’ roll. Woods styled his group after the piano bands of Louis Jordan, Professor Longhair, Joe and Jimmy Liggins, Amos Milburn, and Roy Milton. Adding a healthy dose of New Orleans rhythm and blues, West Coast swing, Kansas City boogie-woogie, Chicago blues, and some of his own contemporary playful lyrics, Woods & His Rocket 88s forge their own brand of music they call “rock-a-boogie.” Bill Kisliuk in Southland Blues says: “If it takes 88 keys to open the door to your heart, then pianist Mitch Woods ought to be your doorman.”
