Roomful of Blues Founding Members: Copley, James & Piccolo w/ Carl Ricci & 706 Union Ave

Friday April 26, 2019 @ 8:00 PM

Al Copley, Doug James and Greg Piccolo are all former members of the 70s and 80s version of ROOMFUL OF BLUES and are back jammin' the jumpin' blues together again. In the last year or two they have completed a new recording with Duke Robillard and Rich Lataille, of the 70s version band which will be released soon. Before Roomful was founded in 1968, Al played in Greg's band and after Roomful went for horns in 1971, we found Doug and he joined us. "The passion of the Music was our viewpoint, we played for ourselves, but found that audiences loved to swing dance to the jumpin' blues."

Joining them are Carl Ricci & 706 Union Ave, the CT-based band that brings the traditional Roots Music from Memphis, Mississippi, Texas & Chicago with a contemporary feel keeping the tradition close to its soul. Band members include:

Carl Ricci - Guitar

Andrew “Drew Blood “Grzybowski - Harmonica/ Vocals

Vinny Vincenzo - Bass,

Bob Bequillard Jr. - Drums

Tickets to see Copley, James & Piccolo with Carl Ricci & 706 Union Ave at Bridge Street Live are $25 for General Admission and $35 for VIP Reserved tickets (plus fees).
