    Thursday ~ March 12, 2015 ~ 8 PM Jimmie Vaughan with James Montgomery & Bruce Marshall Blue Ocean Music Hall 4 Ocean Front N, Salisbury, MA 01952 Phone (978) 462-5888 Tickets $21.25 to $41.80 Ticket Link http://www.blueoceanhall.com/news/187/74/Jimmie-Vaughan.html Jimmie Vaughan recorded eight albums with The Fabulous Thuderbirds: Girls Go Wild on Tacoma; What's The Word, Butt Rockin' and T-Bird Rhythm; and Tuff Enuff (certified platinum), Hot Number, Powerful Stuff and Wrap It Up. He played on hits such as "Tuff Enuff," which received two Grammy Award nominations and resulted in years of worldwide touring. The Fabulous Thunderbirds brought the blues back into the pop charts and the contemporary musical lexicon, sparking a blues revival that continues unabated today. Prior to leaving the The Fabulous Thunderbirds in 1990, Jimmie had joined up with his brother Stevie Ray Vaughan to record Family Style, an album that reflected their mutually deep musical roots and maturing modern artistic sophistication. Then in August, 1990, just a few weeks prior to the album's release, Stevie Ray Vaughan died in a helicopter crash in Wisconsin. The tragedy devastated Jimmie, who retreated from touring and recording, though he continued to play guitar every day, as he has throughout his life. Meanwhile, the success of Family Style further enhanced Jimmie's reputation as a distinctive musical stylist. As Jimmie Vaughan emerged as an artist in his own right, his reputation as a master musician became even more apparent, thanks to the admiration of blues legends like B.B. King and Buddy Guy, such guitar superstars as Eric Clapton and Z.Z. Top's Billy Gibbons, and rising talents like Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. As Clapton notes, "The first time I heard Jimmie Vaughan, I was impressed with the raw power of his sound. His style is unique, and if I've learned anything from him, it's to keep it simple." Likewise, Buddy Guy once proclaimed: "He's unbeatable when it comes to the blues. He just plays it like it's supposed to be played." Even Stevie Ray Vaughan acknowledged that when people would compare his playing to that of his brother, there was really no contest. "I play probably 80 percent of what I can play. Jimmie plays one percent of what he knows. He can play anything."

    Friday ~ April 10, 2015 ~ 7 PM James Montgomery Band with Johnny A & Duke Robillard Fairfield Theatre Company 70 Sanford Street, Fairfield, CT 06824 Phone 203-319-1404 http://fairfieldtheatre.org Tickets $45 James Montgomery is a blues master, he’s played with a long list of legends including BB King, Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, James Cotton, and more. He embodies the best in blues, playing passionately and honestly to ‘wow’ audiences at every show. Johnny A. is one of the most eloquent guitarists in modern music. Think Hendrix, think Page, Clapton, or Prince. Johnny thinks like a singer when he plays, always tasteful and always powerful. The most important piece for Johnny A is always the melody, and he’s a master of the hook. Duke Robillard brings elements of jazz, swing, and rock into his take on blues. Robillard has lent his versatile guitar work and voice to bands including Roomful of Blues and The Fabulous Thunderbirds as well as recording with Bob Dylan and Tom Waits.
