They say "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
So why would we change a great thing? They are simply the best New Year's Eve band on the planet, and we are thrilled to bring back the guys who know how to throw a party for another fun-filled NY Eve show. If you're lookin' for the party to celebrate the coming of a new year, this is the band - and this is the place to do it. Because no one really gets your motor running quite 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, it’s no wonder why the great Count Basie called them “the hottest blues band I’ve 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. Phil’s performances showcase his flamboyant, multi-octave voice, fun-loving attitude. On upright & electric bass - John Turner; on piano & B3 - Rusty Scott; on baritone & tenor sax - Alek Rasdan; on trumpet - Carl Gerhard; and on drums - Mike Coffey.
