Arts Jubilee Presents: Roomful of Blues @ Cranmore Mountain – July 14, 2022

NORTH CONWAY — Arts Jubilee returns to Cranmore Mountain Resort for their 39th Summer Concert Series on Thursday, July 14th. The first of five concerts will feature American blues and swing revival big band, Roomful of Blues. Bennett & Perkins will open the show at 6 PM, followed by ‘Roomful’ at 7 PM.

Roomful of Blues has always been one of the tightest, most joyful blues ensembles in the world. Currently an eight-piece unit led by guitarist Chris Vachon, the band has never sounded fresher or stronger. Singer Phil Pemberton brings his sweet and soulful vocals and adds another bright new dimension to the jazzy, jump-blues musical roots. Their winning combination of jump, swing, blues, R&B and soul remains their calling card, as does their ability to fill the dance floor.

With a non-stop performance schedule for over 50 years, Roomful of Blues has earned critical, popular and radio success and a legion of fans across the globe. According to DownBeat magazine, Roomful of Blues “are 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 ever heard.” Since 1967, the group’s deeply rooted blend of swing, rock ‘n’ roll, jump, blues and soul has earned it 5 Grammy Award nominations and a slew of other accolades, including 7 Blues Music Awards and the prestigious DownBeat International Critics Poll for “Best Blues Band”
