A heartfelt farewell from the Royal Southern Brotherhood to Mike Zito and a warm welcome to our new band member Bart Walker …
It’s bittersweet when your brother leaves home. It’s a time of sorrow and loneliness as well as a time of freedom for you and for him. The love is strong and it doesn’t die because he is always yours and Mike Zito will always be our brother. The memories and shared time last forever. We announce to you first from New Orleans, LA, with joy-filled regret, that Mike Zito is rolling onward with his band Mike Zito & The Wheel. Mike will release a new live record and DVD on Ruf Records, SONGS FROM THE ROAD, which is due on Sept 9th. You’ll get to see him live, in action, as we did playing side by side with him every night.
Mike will play his last US dates with Royal Southern Brotherhood through Bedford Texas at the end of August, then on to Europe and the Blues Cruise in October.
As the band’s royal journey continues, we welcome guitarist/singer and Ruf Records mate Bart Walker to the band. Bart has led his own Nashville based group, which featured Reese Wynans of the Stevie Ray Vaughan band, as well as guitarist for lead singer Mike Farris of the Screamin’ Cheetah Wheelies.
It is an exciting time for both Mike and Bart musically as one departs and one enters the wild world of the Royal Southern Brotherhood. Cyril, Devon, Charlie, and Yonrico wish Mike Zito and his band best wishes. Catch Mike Zito LIVE in October and for more RSB dates please visit www.royalsouthernbrotherhood.com
