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 Central Coast, he currently leads the Jump-Swing & Rockabilly Dance Quartet "The Jump Jax" /the-jump-jax , a Jump-Blues , Rhythm & Soul Quintet "The QuadraTones" /the-quadratones . He hosts The Real Blues Jam SouthWest ; and also Big Variety Night, a musical variety show featuring a series of local acts in short, sweet sets.

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

Ted Waterhouse re-releases his timely political song, 'Woody's Ghost' 

By Glen Starkey
 "I thought that in light of recent national events that need no further elaboration, this song might be timely. It's one that I wrote a few years back, in the days of George W., but it's sure been coming to mind during the last four years and especially in the last few weeks!" Waterhouse wrote in an email. "The lyric is from the point of view of the disembodied spirit of iconic musical hero Woody Guthrie and was borne out of the question, 'What would Woody think of all these shenanigans?"
