    The Band  

    Even though Roomful of Blues’ lineup has changed over the years, the band has  always been one of the tightest, most joyful blues ensembles in the world.  Currently an eight-piece unit led by guitarist Chris Vachon, the band has never  sounded fresher or stronger. Singer Phil Pemberton brings his sweet and soulful  vocals and adds another bright new dimension to the jazzy, jump-blues musical  roots. Thier winning combination of jump, swing, blues, R&B and soul remains  their calling card, as does their ability to fill the dance floor. Along with bassist  John Turner, trumpeter Carl Gerhard, drummer Mike Coffey, keyboardist  Rusty Scott, baritone and tenor saxophonist Alek Razdan, tenor and alto  saxophonist Rich Lataille , Roomful keeps on rockin’ into 2020. 

    Phil Pemberton - Vocals  

    As leader of his own bands for the last 20 years, this Massachusetts native has  found himself playing to intimate clubs all the way to large festivals,  throughout the US, England, France and Canada. In addition, The Philip  Pemberton Band was also the 1st Western band to play in the former capital of  China, Xi’an on a 2 week tour broadcast to ½ a billion people throughout Asia. “His voice can ache with tenderness, or rattle the rafters with it’s power…”- Patricia Smith (Pulitzer nominated Journalist) Boston Globe 

    “This man could sing his way outta Jail…” -Bill Smith
 

    Chris Vachon - Guitar 

    Chris is a true multi-talent. His prowess as a guitar slinger is well documented,  and his strengths as a producer and songwriter grow from album to album. He  produced the band’s eight most recent albums—There Goes the Neighborhood  (1998), Watch You When You Go (2001), Live at Wolf Trap (2002) the  

    Grammy nominated That’s Right! (2003), and Standing Room Only (2004), 

    “Raisin’ A Ruckus” (2008), Hook, Line & Sinker (2011) and 45 Live (2013) after  co-producing all of Roomful’s other albums recorded in the ’90s. Chris’ songs— such as “Turn It On! Turn It Up!,” “Running Out of Time,” “She’ll Be So Fine,”

A man who can play  both sides of the fence, lyrically tender or blisteringly hot, Rich has a big, warm  tone that is always jam-packed with feeling. His melodic inventiveness reflects  the depth and breadth of his wide-ranging influences. Rich worked with  various local and high-school bands before beginning his long-term  relationship with Roomful.
