Mitch Woods featured in Offbeat Magazine

“Singer-pianist Mitch Woods found his thrill in the pre-rock and roll music of blues shouter Wynonie Harris, the boogie-woogie pianists Meade Lux Lewis, Albert Ammons and Pete Johnson, and the Latin tinged-blues-boogie of Professor Longhair. Of course, Fats Domino inspired him, too. Woods celebrates Domino with his new album, A Tip of the Hat to Fats. In 2018, Woods and his band, the Rocket 88s, recorded the album in front of a full house at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival’s Blues Tent. The Rocket 88s feature saxophonists Roger Lewis (the Dirty Dozen, Fats Domino), Amadee Castenell and Brian “Breeze” Cayolle (Allen Toussaint), guitarist John Fohl (Dr. John), bassist Cornell Williams (Jon Cleary), and drummer Terence Higgins (Dr. John, Toussaint, George Porter Jr.).”
