Billy Childs Quartet

Date: 
Friday, November 23, 2012 - 6:00pm

When Pianist Billy Childs was 21 in late 1978,  the high-profile, high-register trumpeter Freddie Hubbard hired him.

"I can't imagine the patience that [Hubbard] must have exercised while trying to solo while I am 'helping' him with my youthful comping [accompanying] ideas, which a lot of times meant just playing all over his solo," Childs tells JazzSet. "I feel fortunate to have been brought up in that time, because that was the way you learned jazz. [You] learned by doing it."

"Rusted Root is a state of mind shared and explored by many people - we are a community that supports one another. The fans are as much a part of this as anyone.

Roomful of Blues, "Last Chance Holiday Dance"

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).

Southside Johnny & the Poor Fools

For more than 35 years, Southside Johnny, aka John Lyon, has delivered a soul-searing brand of raucous blues and R&B that has made he and his Juke's a seminal force as All-American rock n' roll song-slingers. Now, the affable new Jersey rock icon is setting his sights on a long-desired project that will deliver an intimate, acoustically-mined live stage show billed as Southside Johnny and The Poor Fools.
