Even though Roomful of Blues' lineup has changed over the years, the band has always been one of the tightest, most joyful blues ensembles in the world. Led by guitarist Chris Vachon, the band has never sounded fresher or stronger. Phil Pemberton assumed vocal duties in 2010, bringing his sweet and soulful vocals and adding another bright new dimension to the jazzy, jump-blues musical roots. Rounded out by newer members drummer John Turner, trumpeter Doug Woolverton, drummer Chris Rivelli, and keyboardist Rusty Scott, as well as longtime members baritone and tenor saxophonist Mark Earley and tenor and alto saxophonist Rich Lataille, Roomful of Blues keep on rockin' just as hard as ever. Their winning combination of jump, swing, blues, R&B, and soul remains their calling card, as does their ability to fill the dance floor. Gottaswing last hosted Roomful at the Spanish Ballroom in 2012; we know you'll agree we're long past due to see them again!
