Roomful of Blues Dance Party

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'nroll, 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).
