      ....Mitch Woods and His Rocket 88s.. ..
      have been the torchbearers of a great American blues musical heritage, not for two years but two decades. Taking their inspiration from the great jump n' boogie outfits of the late 40s and
      early 50s, they breathe fresh life into the music that gave birth to rock n'
      roll. Woods styled his group after the jumpin' n' jivin', shoutin' n'
      honkin', pumpin' n' poundin' bands of Louis Jordan, Wynonie Harris, Joe and
      Jimmy Liggins, Amos Milburn, and Roy Milton. Adding a healthy dose of New
      Orleans rhythm and blues, piledrivin' piano, and some of his own
      contemporary playful lyrics, Woods and His Rocket 88s forge their own brand
      of music they call "rock-a-boogie."

      After spending more than twenty five years soaking up the New Orleans sound and performing with many of the Crescent City’s musical elite, Mitch has finally realized his dream of recording his latest project with the founding fathers of New Orleans R&B including Earl Palmer, Dave Bartholomew, and Herb Hardesty. Woods reunited the surviving members of Fats Domino’s original band, played a live show in New Orleans during the Jazz & Heritage Festival, took them into the studio, and filmed the whole shebang. The results are plenty of good-time, rock’ n’ roll boogie, played by the originators of the style, fronted by one of their star pupils. The CD/DVD, Big Easy Boogie is available worldwide on Club 88 Records. It has been garnering airplay on all the major satellite and cable radio stations, including XM (3 on picks to click-Bluesville), Sirius, Music Choice, as well as BBC 2 and blues programs worldwide...
