Well I decided to head down to North Myrtle Beach for a couple of days to enjoy the S.O.S. activities and see some old friends. My trips to NMB are always go, go, go….. I get exhausted every time because there is so much to do and I don’t want to miss anything! I spent most of my time hanging with Jim Quick and Coastline. I did three guest spots with them; Deckerz, Fat Harold’s and The Shoe Center. Here’s a little sample from The Shoe Center. Thanks for recording this Mandee Thompson! It was just too darned hot to wear my hat!
I want to send a BIG thank you to Jim Quick, Glen Tippet, Hugh Blanton, Camron Dudley, Casey Meyer and Albert Rogers. I had an absolute ball with you guys. Congratulations on 25 years of being Coastline! At each performance, I made sure to let everyone know that Miss Mini and Pressure Point will be performing at Deckerz on November 18th! I saw people putting the date in their phones so they wouldn’t forget!
I also met my new Agent. (That really makes it sound like I’m somebody!) His name is Matt Carswell and he is an agent for Grand Strand Entertainment. I look forward to a long and successful relationship with him.
I also ran into Shelby Jean Gibson and her husband. We laughed and talked and me and the guys will probably be going to perform at Shelby Jean’s in Carolina Beach soon. Overall, the trip went very well. Every time I go, I never want to leave. I’m pretty sure that one day, I just wont!
Oh, we have a new logo! My very smart and talented trumpet player, Drew Walton, and I put our heads together and came up with this!
I will be getting new cards and everything printed up with this on it! You’ll be seeing this on t-shirts, hats, pens, etc…
Well, I’m just kinda sitting in front of the computer screen now with nothing else to share so I guess, I’ll wrap it up! Thanks for taking the time to read this 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.
