Mr. Boogie's back in town! Mitch Woods and His Rocket 88’s are the torch bearers of a great American musical heritage, taking their inspiration from the great jump n’ boogie outfits and swingin’ little big bands of the 40’s. Mitch takes his cue from Louis Jordan, Cab Calloway, Joe and Jimmie Liggins, Louis Prima, to name just a few. 

In 1985, 72 year-old Pinetop Perkins, one of the founding fathers of Boogie Woogie and considered to be one of the greatest Blues and Boogie pianists, selected 27 year-old Daryl Davis to succeed him in the piano and vocal slot of the Muddy Waters Legendary Blues Band. Daryl Davis has worked with countless greats such as Elvis Presley’s Jordanaires, The Coasters and he is a long-standing, regular player, in Chuck Berry’s current band. 
Together, Mitch Woods and Daryl Davis will provide a fabulous swinging new year!
