Blues Legend James Montgomery with former BOSTON guitarist Barry Goudreau at Jean’s Playhouse

Barry-Goudreau 2James Montgomery 1Monday, April 24, 2017 – Lincoln, NH – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Blues Legend James Montgomery with former BOSTON guitarist Barry Goudreau at Jean’s Playhouse

Charlie Farren of the Joe Perry Project to Open.

This might be our best musical lineup EVER! We are excited to welcome Barry Goudreau, formerly of the multi-platinum band BOSTON.

Barry played on their first two albums, Boston and Don’t Look Back. When released, Boston was the fastest selling debut album of all time. Both albums landed on the top of the Billboard POP Charts, with Boston reaching #3 and Don’t Look Back reaching #1. Barry went on to form Orion the Hunter, RTZ, and released two records with Brad Delp.

Barry Goudreau will be tearing it up with blues legend James Montgomery. When James plays the harmonica, he BRINGS IT ON HOME! Whether it’s recording with Kid Rock, sitting in with Gregg Allman, or fronting his hot band of thirty years, Montgomery plays with authority.

While growing up in Detroit he learned first-hand from the masters – James Cotton, John Lee Hooker, and Jr. Wells – at the legendary “Chessmate.” Over the years, he’s carried on in the tradition and continues to be a vital presence in Blues as one of the most dynamic performers on the scene.

Special Guest Charlie Farren will open on guitar and vocals. Charlie is known for outstanding live solo acoustic performances, and the last time he was at Jean’s Playhouse, he brought down the house! He was lead singer and guitarist with The Joe Perry Project and founded Boston band Farrenheit.

With supporting performances by:

  • Tim Archibald, bass player with Ernie and the Automatics, RTZ, and Peter Wolf’s House Party Five
  • Chuck Farrell, guitar player with The Nor’easters, CRB and The Peacheaters – You can catch the Peacheaters headlining at Jerry Jam on Saturday, July 22 in Bath, NH!
  • Pete Premo, drummer with the Bruce Marshall Group
