"â€¦ this book reveals so much more of the man."Â â€“ Bob Dylan
"as joyful to read as Bookerâ€™s music is to listen to."Â â€“ Willie Nelson
"This beautiful memoir is a near perfect reflection of the man I would walk a million miles for: engaging, unforgettable, and deeply creative."Â â€“ SinĂ©ad O'Connor
"In a new memoir, Time Is Tight: My Life, Note by Note, the Stax studio wizard and acclaimed producer tells his own story and finds his voice.Â â€¦ The result emphasizes not only his Memphis roots and role in Staxâ€™s reinvention of R&B but his second act here in Los Angeles â€” as a wide-ranging session man and producer who remains, in his eighth decade, a sought-after sonic guru."Â â€“ The New York Times

Doors open at 7pm. Kemp Harris opens the show at 8pm!
Even thoughÂ Roomful of Blues'Â 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. In 2010, singer Phil Pemberton took over the vocal duties, bringing his sweet and soulful vocals and adding another bright new dimension to the jazzy, jump-blues musical roots. Their 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 newerÂ members, bassist John Turner, trumpeter Carl Gerhard, drummerÂ Chris Anzalone, and keyboardist Rusty Scott, and longtime members baritone and tenor saxophonist Mark Earley, tenor and alto saxophonist Rich Lataille, Roomful keeps on rockin' in 2019.
