Solos and Duos
A unique solo singer/acoustic guitar player mixing classic and newer pop/rock songs along with a healthy dose of comic ramblings. The Miami Herald says “He’s a cross between Kurt Cobain and Gilbert Gottfried.” Now heading into his 7th year as a weekly regular at the World Famous Elbo room, he can be seen all over Broward.
The Dynamic Musical Duo of Kat N Eddie consists of Eddie Jelley on vocals and Lead Guitar, and Katherine Douglas on lead vocals and percussion. Reknowned New York Guitar Legend, Eddie Jelley whose playing style is likened to such guitar greats as SRV, Steve Lukather, Neal Schon, and Joe Satriani brings the PLUGGED IN quality to this Duo’s unique sound and style. Eddie’s name and signature guitar playing has graced such bands as EVOLUTION, national Journey tribute act featuring Hugo Valenti of VALENTINE on vocals, THE GOOD RATS out of NY, JELLEY, and the touring original band of the 70’s – 80 SALTY DOG. Most recently, Eddie graced the stages of New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, and South Florida with his EDDIE JELLEY & COLDSHOT, THE SRV EXPERIENCE! The band made it to the 98.7 THE GATER Finals of THE GATER TRIBUTE BAND TOUR in 2010 and played BB KINGS, & THE SOUTH FLORIDA FAIR. His gravelly vocals, and likeness to SRV in both playing style and look, crazy guitar licks and tricks, brings audiences to their knees. With over 5 songs by SRV, and 9 songs in this duo’s repertoire by Journey, Eddie lends his smooth guitar vibrato and soaring riffs and guitar solos to every SRV and Journey song!
His partner and other half of the Duo of KAT N EDDIE, Katherine Douglas, combines her bluesy, soulful style, her love of Country and Classic Rock music to bear in every arrangement. To get the powerful sound that this duo has achieved, many of the songs are arranged using their own rock cover band CALAMITY JANE’s backing tracks behind the vocals and guitar parts. Katherine’s renditions of male dominated rock songs by bands like Foreigner, Journey, Kansas, Styx, and Steely Dan, lend a unique surprising twist to these Rock arrangements. Her soulful versions of Rock inspired country tunes by artists such as Miranda Lambert, Grethen Wilson, and Carrie Underwood, satisfy the discerning country music afficionado in any crowd. Her Soulful Bluesy style rings out in songs like ‘Gimme One Reason’, ‘Superstition’, and ‘Like the Way I Do’.
In addition, the Duo includes a whole set’s worth of danceable tunes from the punk retro rock era of the 80’s by artists such as THE PRETENDERS, BILLY IDOL, BLONDIE, PAT BENATAR, & JOAN JETT to name a few.

Mike Mineo is visiting this world. His awkward sense of humor and wide-eyed jesterly ways are just some indications of his reality being based on some other plain of existence. Yet through his music he manages to bring forth a relationship with people here that is more genuine and palpable than most they share with people they have known for years. The reason is this, Mike deals in soul orientation. Whether comical or sublime, he hits the common note in people that makes them feel safe enough to let this minstrel dominatrix molest their conventionality to a destructive climax. He will venture to coax you out of your standard of living, but that is not his main gig. His number one goal is not to have one and to simply let life live through him with music as his primary venue. He earns your trust by honoring the artistic vessel that he is, rather than falling victim to the self enamored pitfalls characterized by some musicians.
Born and raised in South Florida, fully reaping the benefits of full moons over the beach, Mike nurtured his artistic sensibility. In school, he would leave class for a bathroom break, raid a guitar from the chorus room, and entertain one of the few classrooms lucky enough to have an open-minded teacher. He then hit the open road to see the country right out of high school, a common rite of passage from the book of all true soul searchers, from which he wisely took a page.
He has done the research folks. Walked his shoes to the sole and bares the fruit from the experience. He offers reprieve from the waiting line, to tempt that latent part of you that knows there is more than just this. So come and see the spectacle, an experienced audio-erotic seduction of your senses that springs forth from a child-like foundation. You may come with a safe word, but you will walk away contently violated never to remember what it was.
