Roomful of Blues, the jumping, swinging, rocking, award-winning band, will perform at World Cafe Live at The Queen in Wilmington on Thursday, July 31. Their latest CD, “45 LIVE,” released in 2013, commemorates the band’s 45th anniversary. The album is a lightning-in-a-bottle blowout, showcasing the larger-than-life vocal and instrumental power of the band.
The group has earned five Grammy Award nominations and a slew of other accolades, including seven Blues Music Awards. Twice, the prestigious DownBeat International Critics Poll selected them as Best Blues Band. With their masterful combination of jumping, horn-heavy blues and R&B, it’s no wonder why the great Count Basie called them “the hottest blues band I’ve ever heard.”
