The award-winning Company Theatre Center for the Performing Arts 2015 Special Events series presents legendary blues group The James Montgomery Band, in concert, on Saturday, May 16, at 8 pm, at The Company Theatre, 30 Accord Park Drive, Norwell.
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 hot 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.
The James Montgomery Band has recorded 7 albums, and toured with many major artists, including Aerosmith, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Springsteen, The Allman Brothers, Steve Miller and others. He has jammed on stage with B.B.King, Buddy Guy, John Lee Hooker, Jr. Wells, James Cotton, Charlie Daniels, Bonnie Raitt, Gregg Allman, Laverne Baker, Patti LaBelle, and Peter Wolf among others, including an impromptu session with Mick Jagger at New York's "Trax".
