This show is a must see for previous attendees of the Boogie Summit and for folks that have never witnessed the event. There will be two grand pianos, a stellar rhythm section, no smoking, plenty of seating. An outstanding representation of piano styles will include: Mr. Boogie Woogie (Netherlands), a very energetic performer representing a lot of New Orleans R&B and rock 'n' roll; Arthur Migliazza (Seattle), young brilliant piano master beginning in boogie & blues traditions by age ten; Daryl Davis (Maryland), another wonderful disciple of boogie, blues & rock 'n' roll; and Ricky Nye (Cincinnati), the show's producer and a stylist channeling blues, boogie and New Orleans flavors in his personal way.

This year's show will be high in entertainment value, featuring excerpts from Arthur and Mr. Boogie Woogie's "Booginator: The Musical" plus other surprises! The rhythm section will be comprised of world class guitar master George Bedard (Ann Arbor, MI) and Ricky's ready steady team on the local front: Chris Douglas (upright bass) and Paul Ellis (drums).
