Hello everyone. I have recently added a few new folks to my mailing list. I want to say welcome and thank you for your time in reading my stuff!
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, on May 14th I was in Roanoke Rapids doing a birthday party for my biggest fan and friend Mr. Buster Davis! I had a great time. And I want to thank everyone who came out. I just wish I had pictures. It would really be nice to have a photographer/videographer with me all the time. So many great moments go by and I can’t reclaim them. Can’t quite hire one just yet so…yeah.
The next gig is Shake on da Lake June, 11th 2016 with Maurice Wynn and Calvin Richardson at Edwards Beach on Lake Gaston in Henrico, NC!!!
I am sooo looking forward to this one! I know I’m supposed to be working but this will be PLAY!!! Anyone who knows me already knows I love the water. I’m tempted to take my fishing gear but that might be a little too ghetto! My country a$$ gotta act like I’ve been somewhere LOL!
The show is already being advertised very well but I’m going to do my part since I have a few weeks to prepare. I am scheduled to do Video Live on on WHIGTV with Terry Batts Wednesday June 1st @10:30pm. I will talk about the show there. In Rocky Mount NC if you have Suddenlink, you can catch the show on channel 17. If not, you can stream it at http://www.whigtv.com.
I’m also scheduled to do an internet radio show called The Big Scoop with Coop with Michael Cooper on June 9th @7pm. http://www.thebigscoopwithcoop.com I will also talk about it there.
I’ve even hung the flyer up for the show in the store down the street from my house! This stuff probably isn’t necessary but you never know. Anyway, I won’t keep you all long today. So, thanks for being a part of my journey and keep listening! AND JOIN MY FAN CLUB!!! No, really, do it. https://missminimusic.com/join-fanclub/

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.
