It just ain’t Club 88 unless it’s Mitch Woods rocking the ivories. If your day isn’t done until you’ve partied until sunrise, you’re likely the kind of swinger who can’t stop moving to what’s known as jump blues. No ballads here, people. Rock-a-boogie is what Mitch calls his style and it is exactly what it sounds like. No one plays it better than Mitch. He’s a beloved fixture on blues cruises, where his late night gigs are legendary. The wee hours bring out all kinds of musical guests sitting in with the man who single-handedly popularized jump blues, a jazz style that gave birth to rock and roll. The music is high-energy and swings, making it impossible to sit still, much less go to bed.
