WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Roomful of Blues, according to DownBeat magazine, "is in a class by themselves." With their masterful combination of jumping, horn-heavy, hard-edged blues and R&B, it's no wonder why the great Count Basie called them "the hottest blues band I've ever heard." Since 1967, the group's deeply rooted, blend of swing, rock 'n' roll, jump, blues and soul has earned it five Grammy Award nominations and a slew of other accolades, including seven Blues Music Awards (with the nod for Blues Band Of The Year in 2005). Their latest release, Raisin' a Ruckus, is a foot-stomping CD highlighting the intense vocal and instrumental power of the world's smallest big band. Moving effortlessly from originals to carefully chosen covers, the expertly executed songs sizzle from start to finish. Roomful of Blues' winning combination of jump, swing, blues, R&B and soul remains their calling card, as does their ability to fill the dance floor. In 2008, Roomful of Blues will once again hit the road hard, bringing their horn and guitar-fueled music to fans around the world. With their non-stop touring schedule, long-time fans and new converts alike can see for themselves why The Chicago Sun-Times said, "This is a band on top of its game, sliding easily from big-band jazz-blues to guitar-drenched urban blues... Let the party begin."
