7:00 pm to 10:00 pm, Friday March 15James Armstrong Band
His Mom was a blues singer. His Dad played jazz guitar. By age 17, Armstrong was touring the country, and by his 20s, became the youngest member of Smokey Wilson's band. In the 1980s, James was a founding member of the band Mama Roo and received his first recording contract for Crescendo Records.
Events surrounding a home invasion left Armstrong without the use of his left hand and arm, and threatened to end his career forever. In the tragedy he gained in “a whole new respect for the music itself, the power in slow blues, how the silences between the notes are as important as the notes.”
Blues Been Good to Me (2017) is his latest release on CatFood Records. Two prior CDs with CatFood Records: Blues at The Border (2011) and Guitar Angels (2014), ranked in the top 40 in Living Blues radio charts.
