Besides leading his own band, he is currently a member of the Gregg Allman Band and played with the Allman Brothers on their Fall 2009 tour.
The Bruce Katz Band blurs the lines between blues, soul-jazz, and rock in an original and exciting way, playing mostly original music, both instrumental and vocal. The band has a trademark sound, blending the B3 organ and guitar.
Bruce has been nominated for the past 3 years in a row by the Memphis based Blues Foundation for their "Piano Player of the Year" award, which is the equivalent of the "Blues Grammys".
