Roomful of Blues celebrated 45 years of musical madness in a 3-day weekend affair at the Ocean Mist in March, culminating on St. Patrick’s Day in a benefit concert in support of the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame. The local favorites and 2012 hall of fame inductees, held three performances, recording live at the seaside beach bar, commemorating their anniversary with a new CD to be entitled “Roomful of Blues, 45 Live.”
Choosing the Mist as the venue for their third live CD, the band has a soft spot for the “legendary beach bar” now celebrating its own 25th anniversary.
“Over the years Roomful has had many great nights at the legendary beach bar. The fact that The Mist is a great sounding room with a friendly atmosphere definitely makes it a local favorite for us.” the band said in release.
