Bruce Katz is a five time (2008, 2009, 2010, 2015, 2018) Nominee for the Blues Music Award (W.C. Handy Award) for “Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year”, selected by the Blues Foundation of Memphis, TN. While Blues is a very important part of his music, Bruce’s music has more angles and influences, occupying a unique space where blues, “soul-jazz”, jam-band rock, and all aspects of Americana Music collide into a style of original music all his own. He is equally comfortable playing Hammond B-3 Organ and Piano. Bruce has been leading the Bruce Katz Band for twenty-five years. Bruce toured and recorded with Ronnie Earl, Delbert McClinton Band, Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band, John Hammond, and many other legendary artists as well. He was a member of the Gregg Allman Band from 2007-2013. Bruce was also an Associate Professor at the Berklee College of Music for fourteen years (1996-2010), teaching Harmony, Hammond organ labs, Blues History and Private Instruction.
