Two Pianos.
One Stage.
The Story of 100 Years of American Music.

Boogie Stomp! tells the largely untold tale of boogie woogie and how it has shaped popular American music. If you love blues, jazz, swing, stride, rhythm and blues, and/or rock and roll, then you'll love Boogie Stomp.

Boogie Stomp! is the story of past and present American performers and audiences, and the vibrant music that emerges from their lives.

Award-winning Blues and Boogie Woogie pianist Arthur Migliazza began playing the piano professionally at the age of 13. He has been inducted into the Arizona Blues Hall of Fame, was a finalist at the 2010 and 2014 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN, and in his 20+ years of performing has been privileged to play on some of the world's greatest stages, including Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow as part of the sold out Kings of Boogie Tour, the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto, Benaroya Hall in Seattle, as well as on National Public Radio in the US.

In 2014 he received the Best of the Blues Award for Best Keyboardist in Washington State and his latest album, Laying It Down, resided at #1 on the Roots Music Report charts for Washington State for the summer of 2014, and reached #20 on the national chart. Laying It Down also appeared on the GRAMMY Entry List for the 2015 Grammy award nominations.

Boogie Bob Baldori has been a mainstay of blues, boogie and rock in the Midwest for over 40 years. His musical career includes legendary performances over many decades with rock icon Chuck Berry, seminal recordings with both Berry and his own group, The Woolies, and a continuing recording and performing schedule with piano masters Bob Seeley, Martin Schmitt, and Arthur Migliazza.

Boogie Bob has produced and engineered over 200 albums. Baldori started his musical career in the late sixties in Detroit with his group, The Woolies. In the following years, he played alongside Chuck Berry, completing hundreds of performances and recording two albums with Charles. In addition to Berry, Boogie Bob has worked and recorded with many other blues and rock legends, playing piano and harmonica. They include Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Luther Allison, Del Shannon, John Hammond, Hubert Sumlin, and Bo Diddley. 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. If you like classic, no-holds-barred rocking piano boogie, this is for you!
