January All-Stars at The State Theatre

January All Stars

Genre: Rock / Blues Rock

January All-Stars return for what has become one of the most exciting collaborations of rock, jazz and blues greats. Catfish Hodge, Tom Principato, Pete Ragusa, Steve Wolf, and Brian Auger combine their collective years of experience as parts of crowd-pleasing live acts to create a band that is arguably a proverbial “whole” greater than the sum of its parts.
The Allstars are led by powerful high-energy vocalist Catfish Hodge, who is quite like some animated cartoon half bear / half man, jumping, shouting, twisting and ranting in a jump blues / scat-man kind of mojo vocal. Brian Auger on keyboards is worth the price of admission alone – twice named Down Beat Magazine’s best jazz keyboardist – and front man of the world famous Oblivion Express. Tom Principato’s extraordinary tone, finesse, and powerful chording have made him one of the alltime great jump / swing blues guitarists around. With Pete Ragusa of the Nighthawks and Steve Wolf of Swing Speak rounding out the rhythm section, get out your dancing shoes and your heart medicine…
