Well hello again! This past Saturday I entertained some wonderful people at the G6 Social in Zebulon. My band and I had a ball!!! It was western themed so I was in my element! The food was great. The people were nice and I hope they invite me back. Here are a couple of pics. My boobs are totally hanging out but hey, I made it work!
I want to send a special thanks to Ray and Michelle Baker, Sharon Morton and Terri Anne. You guys are awesome! I also want to thank the guys in my band, Redel Williams, Andrew Blackwell and Phillip Deans. I couldn’t do any of this without you guys.
Now, it’s on the the next one this Friday at the Pittsboro Roadhouse! The guys from Bigtime Party Band run this place so I know it will be a good time! I look forward to all of my gigs and this one is no exception. When I perform, I am never working. I am always partying and I love to do that! I’m one of the luckiest people I know because I do what I love to do and get paid for it. I am actually retired already! And as this grows, I will stay grateful and humble and NEVER take it all for granted. I was born for this. I just wish my mom and dad were still here to see all of the progress I am making. They would both be sooooo proud!
OK, I don’t want to depress you or me so here is the poster for Pittsboro.
My friend Gary King did this for the show! It really looks great. Oh, and by the way, I had to name my band! I’m not really happy with the name but I would have never been happy with any name so this is as good as any. Well, I guess that’s all for now. I can’t think of any other news to tell you so I’ll save it for next time. Again, thank you and keep listening!

Catrese Green (West) a.k.a "Miss Mini" was born in Rocky Mount, NC and grew up in the small town of Sharpsburg, 5 miles further south. She got her pseudonym from her grandmother who nicknamed her “Minnesota Fats” because she was a chubby baby. The nickname was shortened to Mini and has stuck with her over the years. Mini began singing with her father, in a Top 40 band called “Electric Image” in 1990. The band traveled throughout the southern United States performing for many different types of audiences. With the band she was exposed to and performed music from the R&B, Country, Blues, Jazz Southern Soul and Beach genres. She has covered songs by Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Shania Twain, Alicia Keyes, The Supremes and various Southern Soul music and Beach music artists. After traveling with the band for more than 15 years, Mini longed to step out of her father’s shadow. She left the band and put her music on hold while she explored other career paths. In 2009, she began to reevaluate her life. This reflection led her back to her first love, music.
She now has her own band that performs her original music as well as cover tunes. She has been touring throughout Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina. Her new album entitled “Can’t Stop Me” was released in December of 2015. The hit song “Ole School Style” as well as other singles from the album, are receiving national airplay on Beach and Southern Soul music stations. Currently, “Ole School Style” is #23 on Soul Dog’s Smokin’ Top 45 Southern Soul Hits countdown. She has performed at the Annual Blues Festival at Carter’s Lounge in Warrenton NC alongside greats such as Roy C. and Maurice Wynn. She has also done countless club engagements, the most recent being at Deckerz Bar and Grill in North Myrtle Beach, which has won the award for best show club at the Carolina Beach Music Awards for 2014 and 2015. Upcoming performances include the Raleigh Seafood Festival, the Pittsboro Roadhouse and many others.
