About Ted

Ted Waterhouse (aka Catalina Eddy) is well-known as one of the premiere guitarists, vocalists, and songwriters on California's Central Coast.  He has performed in and out of the area for over forty years both as a solo artist and as leader of such legendary bands and duos as the "The Howlie Playboys", "The Viper Six", "The Blue Souls", "The Hot & Cool Orchestra” and "Catalina Eddy and the Blue Keys" . In addition to playing solo gigs around the County he currently leads the Jump-Swing, Rockabilly, & Soul Quartet "The Jump Jax" /the-jump-jax , a Jump-Blues Quintet "The QuadraTones" /the-quadratones  as well as performing along side such local luminaries as  Debra Windsong and Kevin McCracken.

Employing standard acoustic, bottleneck slide guitar and electric arch top, Ted plays a wide variety of music from the classic  styles of Delta, Chicago and Jump Blues; '50's Rock-a-Billy & Rock and Roll; '30's and '40's Swing Jazz; and old time Honky Tonk Country along with his own solid compositions. A veteran performer at Live Oak Music Festival, SLO Concerts in the Plaza Series, and SLO Blues Society, Ted's shows are always lively and varied and never fail to set toes tapping and leave music lovers deeply satisfied.

"Ted Waterhouse looks like a GQ model and writes and sings music with a quality usually reserved for those who die at age 27. His fingers dance faster than race horses across the fret board of his Gibson ES-175 "
- Glenn Starkey, New Times SLO
