John's Is., SC, resident Ted McKee, aka Teddy Midnite, heads up 10 different musical acts of various genres including Sneakers, Swing Soup, Teddy Midnite, McKee & Stone, Wing Walker Jazz Trio, Blue Sky Band and Boss Hawg. In addition to playing live gigs 6 to 7 nights a week (sometimes 2 or 3 in one day), he 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 in a folk duo with his brother on banjo before the boys progressed to rock and roll. He has been living in the Lowcountry since the late 70's and raised his family here. He played on the road with John Brannen, Jack Williams, and other well known musicians.
