Mitch Woods plays tribute to famous artists and genres, performing the first set solo, and inviting local talent and special guests to join in during the second set.
Mitch Woods and His Rocket 88s have been the torchbearers of a great American Blues musical heritage, not for three years—but three decades. Taking their inspiration from the great jump –n– boogie outfits of the late 40s and early 50s, they breathe fresh life into the music that gave birth to Rock –n– Roll. Woods styled his group after the jumpin’ –n– jivin’, shoutin’ –n– honkin’, pumpin’ –n– poundin’ bands of Louis Jordan, Wynonie Harris, Joe & Jimmy Liggins, Amos Milburn, and Roy Milton. Adding a healthy dose of New Orleans Rhythm & Blues, pile-drivin’ piano, and some of his own contemporary playful lyrics, Woods and His Rocket 88s forge their own brand of music they call “Rock-a-Boogie.”
