James Montgomery

James Montgomery Trio – From Detroit to the Delta…bringing the blues to The Blue Room
Thursday Feb. 15, 2024  ~  7:00 – 10:00 pm
Cover charge $10

James Montgomery, now a Rhode Island resident, has been an iconic figure in blues music for more than 40 years, as an accomplished blues harpist, singer, frontman, bandleader and composer.

When Blues legend James Montgomery plays the harmonica, he “brings it on home.” Whether it’s recording with Kid Rock, sitting in with Gregg Allman, or fronting his own band of thirty years, Montgomery plays with authority. While growing up in Detroit he learned first-hand from the masters – James Cotton, John Lee Hooker, and Jr. Wells – at the legendary “Chessmate.” Over the years, he’s carried on in the tradition and continues to be a vital presence in Blues as one of the most dynamic performers on the scene.

While attending Boston University, Montgomery formed The James Montgomery Band. Montgomery has toured with many major artists, including Aerosmith, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, the Allman Brothers, Steve Miller, an All-Star Blues Brothers Band and more. He’s jammed on stage with B.B.King, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Jr. Wells, James Cotton, Charlie Daniels, Bonnie Raitt, Greg Allman, Laverne Baker, Patti LaBelle, and Peter Wolf among others, including an impromptu session with Mick Jagger at New York’s “Trax.”

You don’t want to miss this show, but don’t just take our word for it:
– “…the James Montgomery Band is tight and exciting, producing onstage music that is aggressive, yet self controlled” – Rolling Stone
– “A studied blues musician and a great entertainer… his music has never failed to interest me since we first met over thirty years ago.” – James Cotton
