Roomful Of Blues - Live in Cedar Rapids Iowa 2006

The Rippin' Frog shares a Roomful of Blues with us this time.

Roomful of Blues August 5, 2006 Cedar Rapids, IA Bluesmore 2006 
on the grounds of the Brucemore mansion. FM
Over the course of their decades-long existence, Roomful of Blues effectively became a franchise unto themselves, built more on a brand-name collective identity than on the voices of the myriad individual members who kept the band a smoothly humming machine. 
Describing Roomful of Blues that way, however, gives short shrift to the many accomplished musicians who have emerged from the band's ranksover the years: guitarists Duke Robillard and Ronnie Earl, Mark Dufresne, organist Ron Levy, pianist Al Copley,  singer Lou Ann Barton, vocalist/harmonica player Sugar Ray Norcia, and drummer Fran Christina  (later of the Fabulous Thunderbirds), to name the most prominent. Plus, the band's horn section blossomed into a renowned freelancing unit, backing countless other artists both on-stage and in the studio. 
They've evolved over the years, too; from a swinging jump blues revivalist group into expert blues historians with a handle on numerous regional variations: Texas, the West Coast, Chicago,  New Orleans, Kansas City. Perhaps the best way to put it is that regardless of who was in the group, Roomful of Blues just kept going strong.

Nine Below Zero - Village 1 Mars 2003

Nine Below Zero on Soundaboard, a very welcome share by Rippin Frog.

In 1979 while playing at The Thomas A'Beckett pub in the Old Kent Road they accepted an offer from former musician Mickey Modern to manage them, and it was he who persuaded them to change the band's name to something sharper. Greaves chose Nine Below Zero after the Sonny Boy Williamson II penned song
At that time Modern was a musician signed to A&M Records, after producing the band's demos he persuaded A&M to give him a record label with which to launch this band's career. Modern named the label M&L Records.
Under Modern's creative direction and production, the band went full-time, and in 1980 released their first album, Live At The Marquee, which was recorded on 16 June 1980. Bradley on drums was replaced by Stix Burkey. By the end of that year they were one of the most popular club attractions in London, pulling in audiences from other genres, particularly the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, attracted by their high-energy fast tempo sound. They headlined at the Hammersmith Odeon and featured respected bluesman Alexis Korner, a long-time champion of new electric blues talent.
Nine Below Zero kick off 2014 their 35th year  with a tour small tour with Ben Waters playing piano with the band. The set they play with Ben is different, with more songs from the Hats Off project they made together.
After the tour with Ben they join The Stranglers as special guests for a six week tour of the UK. Later in the year to help promote the re-release of Don't Point Your Finger and Third Degree on Universal Records they are putting the classic line up together for a one off tour of the UK. The usual sprinkling of festivals in the summer will be the icing on the cake of what will be a  very special anniversary year for Nine Below Zero.

this was a live recording for Swedish radio
 enjoy !!

Lee completely lost his eyesight by the age of eight. His avid interest in early rock and blues was fostered through the 1950s by late night listening sessions via the Nashville-based radio station WLAC-AM, where he first encountered the sounds of Elmore James, Albert King and Albert Collins.
By his late teens, Lee was playing rhythm guitar in a regional band called The Glaciers that covered Elvis Presley, Little Richard and Chuck Berry material. Through the 1960s, Lee's interest turned to Chicago blues and he soon found himself immersed in that scene, opening for some of his boyhood heroes. In 1979 he released his first album named Beauty Isn't Always Visual.In January 1982, Lee moved to New Orleans, eventually landing a steady gig at the Old Absinthe House on Bourbon Street becoming a favorite of tourists in the city's French Quarter. For the next 14 years, Lee and his Jump Street Five played five nights a week at that popular bar, developing a huge following and a solid reputation.
Today Lee continues to perform in New Orleans. He also tours several times a year in the Midwest, Eastern Seaboard, Rocky Mountain States and recently Europe and Brazil. Lee appeared with Kenny Wayne Shepherd as the musical guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on February 14, 2007
