BOOGIE STOMP! An evening with two of the greatest jazz/boogie/stride/blues pianists in the world. Together they tell how the basic elements of boogie woogie – rhythm and improvisation over a blues form – became the backbone of American music. It is an exploration of the relationship between blues, jazz, boogie, swing, stride, rock, R&B and contemporary pop music, told through personal history and anecdotes.
Arthur Migliazza has been inducted into the Arizona Blues Hall of Fame. It was through his love of Blues music and his dedication to the piano that he came under the wing of such mentors/teachers as Henry Butler, Ann Rabson and Mr. B. Aside and, from these direct influences, Arthur spent many years listening to and studying the recordings of piano players such as Otis Spann, Champion Jack Dupree, Jimmy Yancey, Professor Longhair, James Booker, Jay McShann, Katie Webster, and many more. A common response to watching Arthur perform is "Wow, I didn't know it was possible to play the piano like that!"
Boogie Bob Baldori has been a mainstay of blues, boogie and rock in the midwest for over 40 years. He has performed hundreds of dates in venues from Detroit to Chicago, LA to New York and to the White House for President Clinton. In addition to recording and performing his own material, Boogie Bob has produced and engineered over 200 albums. Along the way he developed a style of piano playing heavily influenced by boogie, jazz, and the relentless blues styles of Lafayette Leake, Otis Spann, James Booker and Johnny Johnson.

It all started back in 1966 when Bob Kuban and the In-Men blazed their way to the top of the charts with their horn-driven slice of blue-eyed soul, The Cheater!
While Bob has been an undeniable success in the past, he's continued to 'hit it big' year after year. The Bob Kuban Brass entertained at the closing ceremonies at the 1994 Olympic Festival. They also opened for Michael McDonald (formerly of the Doobie Brothers) and Kenny G at a Democratic fundraiser with President Bill Clinton as the guest speaker. In a poll published by The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Bob Kuban Brass were second only to the Grammy award-winning St. Louis Symphony Orchestra.
Featuring bandstand favorites and standards to present-day hits, the Bob Kuban Band will have you up on your feet and out on the dance floor!
