WICN Public Radio, in collaboration with the Theatre District Alliance, presents Jazz at Sunset, featuring the James Montgomery Band. The area behind the theater will be transformed into an outdoor, picnic-style concert venue to include food trucks, cash bars, and Theatre District Alliance exhibits promoting the various businesses and cultural organizations in the neighborhood.
Recent inductee into the Rhode Island Hall of Fame, James Montgomery and his band will be featuring songs from their last CD dedicated to the late Paul Butterfield, as well as playing old favorites as the band approaches its 50th year! Butterfield was a true innovator, and the band has taken some of his songs one step further. Montgomery has always modeled his live show after Butterfield and his lifelong mentor and Blues legend, James Cotton, so expect high energy blues laced with rock and just enough funk!
