MAY 24

James Montgomery with the Uptown Horns

Friday, May 24th @ 7:30

After an incredible sold-out Holiday Extravaganza in December, American Blues Legend and longtime Newport resident James Montgomery returns with his exciting All-Star Blues Band to the JPT on Friday May 24th at 7:30PM for another very rocking event to kick off Memorial Day Weekend! Joining James for this show will be the world famous Uptown Horns, who have recorded with everyone from James Brown, The B-52’s and Tom Waits to Joan Jett and Iggy Pop, and have toured with the J. Geils Band and The Rolling Stones. More recently, they recorded with Montgomery on his album ‘From Detroit to the Delta”. James Montgomery and his band have toured with every major artist on the circuit including The Allman Brothers, Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith, B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Bonnie Raitt, Steve Miller and countless other rock and blues bands. Montgomery has been a member of The Blues Brothers, Commander Cody, and spent 6 years with Blues/Rock Legend Johnny Winter. During his stint with Winter, Montgomery earned a Grammy nomination for Johnny’s “Bluesman” CD.

Now in its 55th year, the current line-up for the James Montgomery Band is as hot as ever, featuring bassist David Hull from The Joe Perry Project (and 4 tours with Aerosmith), drummer Marty Richards (J. Geils Band) and guitarist George McCann (The Blues Brothers). The band is known for their high energy performances, unparalleled musicianship, and Montgomery’s uncanny ability to engage and electrify any crowd. The JPT is excited to kick off Memorial Day Weekend with this incredible event. Opening the evening will be regional favorites Dopey Lopes and the Up All Night Band.

A portion of proceeds from this show will benefit Newport’s beloved Broadway Street Fair and Operation Stand Down RI.
