World-renowned organist, keyboardist, and bandleader BRUCE KATZ will be bringing his long-time trio to Des Moines for a special one-off show on Saturday, October 25th. Fresh off the road from touring with the likes of DELBERT McCLINTON, JAIMOE’S JASSSZ BAND (of the Allman Brother Band), and others, Katz, recently inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame, will be on a national fall tour in support of his new studio release, Homecoming, which features a number of special guests including the legendary JOHN HAMMOND, JR., as well as The Band’s RANDY CIARLANTE, and will be the group’s first release in nearly six years. The trio features fellow NYHOF member, guitarist CHRIS VITARELLO, and inimitable percussionist/Berklee College of Music veteran RALPH ROSEN.


In addition to serving as a CD release event for the new album, for this special one-off show, a Lonely Orphans Production by Des Moines locals Kim West, bella soul’s Brandon Findlay & Tina Haase Findlay, and Dan Dahle of the Fremont, the BKB will perform an extra special set of music for their Des Moines audience. As a touring keyboardist with the GREGG ALLMAN BAND for several years, Katz went on to join the touring ensemble for the ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND for a number of dates after Allman suffered an injury in 2010, and has sat-in with the band a number of times before and since. In honor of his love for their music and his personal connection to the band, the BKB will perform a set of their favorite Allman Brothers Band classics, which promises to be the very definition of a “can’t-miss occasion.”


The show will also feature several guest sit-ins from area favorites, which will only ramp up the special nature of this one-night-only event. For more information, please contact:
