James is going to be performing in Somerville on March 11 at Johnny D’s. As you know, Johnny D’s is closing soon and James’s show will be the final Friday night show ever held at the club
A musician of many talents, James, an iconic figure in New England music for over 40 years, is an accomplished blues harpist, singer, front man and bandleader, lending these talents to his own band, The James Montgomery Band, and to countless sessions and tours over the years with the likes of Gregg Allman, Johnny Winter, B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones, Joe Cocker, James Brown and so many others it would take two pages to list them all. He’s also hosted his own syndicated blues radio show, interviewing and playing the music of numerous blues and blues-rock luminaries. This man has stories to tell!
