BRIEF BIO Ted McKee aka Teddy Midnite, heads up 10 different musical acts of various genres including Sneakers, Swing Soup, Teddy Midnite, McKee Island Duo, Call Momma (Americana), Wing Walker Jazz Trio, Blue Sky Band (Country) and Boss Hawg (Blue Eclectic Grass). In addition to playing live gigs 6 to 7 nights a week (sometimes 2 or 3 in one day), Ted finds time to write songs, arrange music, record in his own studio and keep a slight hand in the financial planning business that allowed him to ditch the coat and tie. McKee, born in Atlanta to an Army Officer grew up traveling the world. He comes from a long line of musicians and started at 15 playing guitar with his brother in a rock band in Ft, Smith, Arkansas. Teddy has been living in the Lowcountry since the late 70's and raised his family here.
Ted's niece, Bonnie McKee is on the pop charts in her own right as the co-writer of "Teenage Dream", "Roar" and many more number one hits for artists, Katy Perry, Brittany Spears, and more. Ted's piano CD, "Teddy Midnite" hit peak sales in international markets. His song "If You Ever Wanted Someone" has been touted by fans as "the best love song ever written". His other CD's are noted on the home page and available by email or from CD Baby, including "Swing Soup", a jazzy western swing delight of original music.
Whether he's on guitar, piano, solo or with the band, there is no question, Ted McKee is Charleston's premier entertainer. In public gigs, Ted and musical friends such as David Owens, Bob Tobin, Bob Sachs and Bruce Roberts perform at DD Peckers Wing Shack and Morgan Creek Grill, performing a wide range of original and cover songs.
FROM THE CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 2/08
Teddy Midnite "From blues to folk to swing" "With a dollop of Tom Waits' growl and the playful keyboard swagger of Dr. John, local singer/songwriter Ted McKee (a.k.a. Teddy Midnite), offers up two evenings of home-cooked bluesy gumbo: music that sticks to your ribs. We hope to hear a few originals from his Teddy Midnite album as well as his usual repertoire of acoustic blues, Western swing, and American. Bring Your appetite!" ~ Jon Santiago (Staff Writer Charleston City Paper 2-13-08)
