* American pianist and singer-songwriter. Their musical style is a combination of blues, soul, funk, and jazz.
* Touring keyboardist for Grammy nominee and multi-Blues Music Association award winning Ruthie Foster & The Family Band. He appears on her "Live At Antones", which was named "DVD Of The Year" in 2012 by BMA.
* In 2008, Scottie was inducted into the Minnesota Blues Hall of Fame
"Scottie Miller sounds like Dr. John meets The Band at Bruce Springsteen's house. Highly recommended." Tom Hyslop, Blues Revue Magazine....Quite the comparison, and he backs it up with high energy performance, creative song writing, dramatic lyrics and impeccable piano playing.
“Scottie Miller is a world class lyricist with working class sensibilities. He sings from the heart with old school soul and plays the funkiest New Orleans piano this side of Dr. John. This cat’s got the goods!” - The Blues Hound, (KPFT FM Houston)
Jack Klatt & The Cat Swingers (9:00):
*With a boisterous finger-picking style and whiskey worn voice, Jack and band continue the troubadour tradition of folks like Utah Phillips, Blind Willie MacTell and Townes Van Zandt. These Cat Swingers know how to entertain.
“Young, retro barroom-blues/folk pickers Jack Klatt & the Cat Swingers aren’t just influenced by some of the greats of Minneapolis’ West Bank music scene, they’re actually playing with some of them.” Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune
“Klatt melds burlesque, blues and gypsy jazz in a way that inspires good vibes no matter what’s being sung about.” Minnesota Public Radio
