Kati has a company called LOCAL COMMOTION WALKING HISTORY and has presented a unique musical program called "The Blues and Jazz Queens" at many venues. It is a timeline of blues and jazz songs and the ladies who sang them. Sit back and enjoy some history in the music that makes this country jump. This program along with other Jazz and Blues programs such: Gospel (Salute to Thomas A. Dorsey), Jazz: Birth to Bebop, Rhythms of the Blues (with Kati's new band Lil Swing Band) has been performed at the JSJBF's Jazz and Blues Fesitval 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010.

Kati is owner of Local Commotion Walking History Company. She created her company in the fall of 1993 and it's mission is to integrate performance with education, going beyond the scope of historical text. She has an extensive list of musical and non-musical programs.

Kati loves to sing out and gigs with various players. She loves to the opportunity to sing both Jazz and Blues.

Kati is now in a group named KATI and the LIL' SWING BAND whose talented members include Guitar BO Pezzullo,and Andy Judkis, keyboardist Bill Henry, and others.
