Swing revival stalwarts Roomful of Blues join us live for a Free at Noon next Friday. Blending traditional blues motifs with big band attitude, Roomful of Blues are five-time Grammy nominees with a discography that reaches back forty years.

To celebrate its 45th anniversary, the Rhode Island-based outfit released a specially-recorded live album in 2013 called 45 Live. Hand-picking tracks from their expansive back catalog, the eight current band members curated a retrospective release that exhibits their best qualities: fun, dance-friendly, party-starting music performed by expert musicians.

See the band in action at next week's Free at Noon, and at the Sellersville Theater that night at 8 PM
