Al Copley, Doug James and Greg Piccolo, former members of the 70s/80s Roomful of Blues and are back jammin' the jumpin' blues together again.
Don't miss your only chance to catch these legends all on the same stage at the North Shore's most intimate, elegant listening room!
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.
We all shared our records, our lives and our insanity, and of course Sandy's in Beverly was the perfect spot for us in the good ol' daze ! The Sloppy Seventies return to Sweet Home Beverly (maybe with a little bit less to drink this time?)
About 25 miles north of Boston, award-winning 9 Wallis is a gorgeous, fully restored, historic location conveniently situated in the heart of Downtown Beverly's Arts District at 9 Wallis Street, right next to the Larcom Theatre -- less than half a mile from the Beverly Depot rail station and 3 miles from Route 128, with plenty of free parking (see map).
In April 2017, after 4 years of presenting over a hundred award-winning concerts at Beverly's Larcom Theatre, we transformed 9 Wallis into most intimate, elegant, fully air conditioned listening room north of Boston with comfortable seating at tables, plus food & beverage service offering fine wines, local craft beers, specialty cocktails (featuring local distilleries and all-natural juices) and top-shelf spirits.
In August 2018, 9 Wallis owners, Peter and Vickie Van Ness, were presented with the Boston Blues Society's Keeping the Blues Alive Award for their work at 9 Wallis.
This beautifully restored, tremendously flexible space is also available for fundraisers, private parties and corporate events. Local charities have raised thousands of dollars at 9 Wallis.
