Roomful of Blues, "Last Chance Holiday Dance"

Event Date: 
Saturday, December 22, 2012 - 8:00pm

Roomful of Blues, according to DownBeat magazine, "are in a class by themselves." With their masterful combination of jumping, horn-heavy, hard-edged blues and R&B, it’s no wonder why the great Count Basie called them "the hottest blues band I've ever heard."  

The group’s deeply rooted blend of swing, rock ‘n’ roll, jump, blues and soul has earned it five Grammy Award nominations and a slew of other accolades, including seven Blues Music Awards (one for Blues Band Of The Year in 2005 and Best Blues Act at the Boston Blues Awards 2011).

"A tour-de-force of horn-fired blues" - Billboard

"Few bands swing the blues more exuberantly than Roomful of Blues…boisterous and relentlessly upbeat." - Entertainment Weekly
