Nothing says party like Mitch Woods when he’s playing the 88s. His raucous, late night come-one, come-all, blues cruise boogie-woogie confabs have sealed his reputation as one of the best jump blues piano players working today. Fans dubbed those at-sea, sweaty sessions Mitch Woods’ Club 88. His infectious energy and incredible showmanship make sitting still an impossible proposition. Going to a Mitch Woods set means you are dancing. End of story. Mr. Woods delivers a sound that hearkens back to the great jump blues bands of the 1940s and 50s. He calls his style “rock-a-boogie.” We call it straight-up fun.
