Steve March Torme

Steve March Torme, one of Mel's sons, has followed in his father Mel's footsteps, becoming a singer and songwriter of no mean ability. Recognized by some as the preeminent voice in jazz music today Steve and his trio will swing and croon to you as he drifts back through the great American songbook as only a Torme can do. His formidable wit and wonderful audience rapport makes Steve a whole entertainer and seeing him in the Amazing Things's intimate setting is a great treat!

Roomful of Blues

At 43-years-old, New England's Roomful of Blues has been around even longer than Alligator Records. For all that time, they've celebrated the jump blues, R&B and early rock 'n' roll music of the horn-powered golden era of the late 1940s and early 1950s. Roomful don't simply recreate the famous and obscure 78s and 45s of those years. Inspired by the spirit of the groundbreaking bands of the post-World War II decade, they've breathed new life into vintage songs, infusing them with boundless energy and fiery, swinging solos and vocals.
