For nearly half a century, 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. 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, it’s no wonder why the great Count Basie called them “the hottest blues band I’ve ever heard.” Billboard simply says, “Roomful is so tight and so right.”
It’s clear why The New Yorker described a Roomful concert as “thunderous performances that get feet stomping and hands clapping.” Roomful of Blues, according to DownBeat magazine, “are in a class by themselves.” Roomful of Blues has always maintained its signature sound through great musicianship and a stellar horn section.
