About this Event

The Legendary Bruce Katz (keyboards) and the UK’s Giles Robson (Vocals/Harmonica) first collaborated on the Blues Music Award Winning “Journeys To The Heart Of The Blues” album on Alligator Records. They hit the studio again with Bruce’s band to record Robson’s new album “Don’t Give Up On The Blues” described by American Blues Scene magazine (USA) as an “Exciting, inventive, powerful and glorious collaboration”. Giles, Bruce and The Band bring their explosive show to the northeast for a Holiday Tour.

Giles Robson

UK-based harmonicist, bandleader and Blues Music Award Winner Giles Robson, born in 1978, has recorded four albums and has won fans and headlined festivals all across the UK, Europe and even Russia. A lifelong blues disciple, he knows and understands tradition but is unafraid to take the music in unexpected directions. His most recent CD is 2018’s Journeys To The Heart Of the Blues with Joe Louis Walker and Bruce Katz on Alligator/Munich Records won a Blues music Award For acoustic album of the year 2019. He picked up his first harmonica at age 14 and soon after saw a concert by American Piedmont blues duo Cephas Wiggins at his local arts centre. From then on, he was hooked on the blues. Blues Matters (UK) says, “Robson is a world class harpist. He has the authority, confidence and expertise associated with legends.”

Bruce Katz & The Band

Bruce Katz -Piano/organ Bruce s among the most in-demand keyboard players on the blues scene, a blues Music Award Winner, alongside Robson, For Journeys To The Heart Of The Blues and a five-time Blues Music Award nominee, was born in New York in 1952. He has recorded ten albums with The Bruce Katz Band. He has just released his solo album an acoustic solo piano album Solo Ride. Bruce has performed, toured and recorded with The Gregg Allman Band, Delbert McClinton, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band, John Hammond, Ronnie Earl, Duke Robillard, Joe Louis Walker and Butch Trucks as well as with The Allman Brothers Band. Greg Allman said of Katz, “He can play jazz, blues, Bach, anything. Man, he’s a heavy!” Legendary blues pianist Pinetop Perkins simply said, “Now that’s a piano player.”

Aaron Lieberman – Guitar Aaron studied jazz guitar at Manhattan School of Music. During that time, he helped form the rock band, God Street Wine. During their 11-year run, God Street Wine recorded three major label albums and toured extensively throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe, sharing the stage with artists such as Bob Dylan, The Allman Brothers, and The Black Crowes. Since that time, Aaron has enjoyed playing many different styles of music, including rock, jazz, and even klezmer, and has written and/or performed with various artists in and around New York City.

Antar Goodwin Bass Groove is at the heart of Antar Goodwin’s playing. This fact has made him one of New York’s first call players. Equally comfortable in the studio and on the stage, he has played electric and acoustic bass on many of NYC’s best stages. Born in Philly, bassist and composer Antar spent the early part of his life moving with his family. He had a desire to play that showed at a very early age. By the age of five, he was playing drums, and by seven piano and classical violin. By the time he was in his teens he traded in his violin and was playing bass, guitar, piano and began to seriously write songs. Already a Berklee College of Music alumni, Antar next received a scholarship to study at Kripalu, in Lenox MA. Since graduating he has collaborated withSting, Lauryn Hill, Abbey Lincoln, Benny Golson and Patti Smith

Ray Hangen Drums With a professional career starting at the early age of seventeen, drummer Ray Hangen defines the term “deep in the pocket.” Whether playing blues, country, funk, jazz, rock, R&B, or zydeco, Hangen hits a hard and hot beat as steady as it grooves, preferring subtle and tasteful fills and flashes, to any hint of bombast. No matter the setting or style, the pocket is locked in when Ray Hangen is behind the kit. In 2004, Hangen was asked to join the band of lauded Atlanta blues artist, the great Sean Costello. During Ray’s time with the late guitarist, they recorded three internationally released recordings and kept up a busy national and international touring schedule Over the years, Hangen has been hired by many renowned blues artists for full tours, recording sessions, and special appearances. These artists have included Joe Beard, Lurrie Bell, Eddie Kirkland, Lou Pride, Joe Louis Walker, Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne, Brandon Santini, Dave Gross, Ana Popovic, Greg Gumpel, Altered Five Blues Band, Oliver Wood, Josh Roberts, and John Nemeth. Hangen has also played with the great Francine Reed, the legendary Bryan Lee, B3 organ great Tony Monaco, Grammy-award winning Tom Hambridge, Corey Glover of Living Colour, and the iconic Kim Wilson.
