No one really gets you up and going like Roomful of Blues!
Roomful of Blues has been delivering its signature blend of swing, rock n roll, jump, blues and R&B to euphoric audiences all over the world for decades. Blues Revue says, Roomful of Blues is a sheer joy...contagious, finger-popping, head-bopping grooves...the horns blast loud and proud...explosive and electrifying. The band has earned five Grammy Award nominations and a slew of other accolades, including seven Blues Music Awards. Twice, the prestigious DownBeat International Critics Poll has selected them as Best Blues Band. With their masterful combination of jumping, horn-heavy blues and R&B, its no wonder why the great Count Basie called them the hottest blues band Ive ever heard.
For the last two decades, Roomful has been led by Chris Vachon, one of the most underrated guitarists in the blues. For 40 years, their hard-charging horn section has been sparked by Rich Lataille on tenor and alto sax. Energizing the band since 2010 is their terrific vocalist, Phil Pemberton. Phils performances showcase his flamboyant, multi-octave voice, fun-loving attitude and his deep understanding of the era when jumping blues bands were fronted by huge-voiced singers like Roy Brown, Wynonie Harris and Big Joe. They are universally referred to as the "best little big band in America."
"Aim the beat at their feet!" is the tireless maxim that expresses the character and guiding principle of Roomful of Blues.
"Excellent, marvelous wall-to-wall grooves between the wicked guitar work and the brassy horn section, things never stop swinging." - USA Today
"Roomful Of Blues plays an inspired, lively and heated brand of rippling, up-tempo, horn-dominated R&B." Rolling Stone
"Few bands swing the blues more exuberantly than Roomful of Bluesboisterous and relentlessly upbeat." Entertainment Weekly
