    Keith Patterson, Cortez and The Killers & Mitch Woods

    in Music

    The Keith Patterson Band is; Keith Patterson/guitars/writer, John Taylor/drums, Drew Jacobs/bass, Brian Mckenzie/guitar/lap slide guitar, Danny Korzelius/Lead Vocals and hail from the Myrtle Beach, SC.
    The band plays their version of blues-infused rock and are gaining fans wherever they paly.
    Keith will join me to discuss his career and their new album, Stone Cold & Blue.
    Also from South Carolina comes the band Cortez & The Killers. 
    The band was officially formed in 2009 & is quickly developing a following both at home in the USA as well as in Europe.
    Headed up by Cortez himself the band has relied on its original material from the beginning.  Managing to keep the feel of traditional Blues music but infusing it with the Classic British rock sound their music has taken on a distinct voice of its own that is instantly recognizable as being none other than Cortez & The Killers own brand of unique electrified Blues.
    Cortez and I will talk about his life, the band and the music on their self-titled debut album.
    Since the early 1980s Mitch Woods has been touring and recording with his band, the Rocket 88s.
    Woods calls his music, "rock-a-boogie," and with his backing band has retrospectively provided a 1940s and 1950s jump blues style.
    Mitch will join me to talk about his long, illustrious career and where he is taking the 88's next while we listen to music from their latest, Blues Beyond Borders, recorded in Istanbul.

    All About The 88s
    Beth McKee performed with the sensational New Orleans based country-cajun group Evangeline, she is now out on her own with the 2009 release "I'm That Way," a tribute to legendary Louisiana songwriter Bobby Charles.
    A stella pianist who it has been said is, “worthy of some Jerry Lee Lewis arson.”
    McKee is close to dropping her new album (working title "Hopeful Heart") and is out doing the touring thing.
    I get to chat with Ms. McKee and discover her history and her desires moving forward.
    The good friend, Victor Wainwright will take his second seat on The Couch to celebrate the release of the new Victor Wainwright & The Wildroots album, "Lit Up."  
    This is a winner folks.  A collection of songs that will transport you from the bayous of Louisiana to the back porches of the Georgia hills with stops in Juke Joints in memphis and Chicago.
    Victor is one of the top piano players around today and his vocals are just amazing.
    Victor and I will play cuts from the album and talk about the recording process and what is next for the Wildroots.
