Teresa James & The Rhythm Tramps
Friday, 8pm, Clocktower Stage
Texas born and raised Teresa James and her band, The Rhythm Tramps, were nominated for a Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album! "Here in Babylon" is the bands 10th album and the culmination of 20 years of making music together. It combines a mix of blues, soul and Texas roadhouse rock with a contemporary attitude. This band has not made it to the Inland Northwest before, so a new and rare treat. They have played with or recorded with such artists as Bonnie Raitt, Delbert McClinton,Tom Jones, Dixie Chicks, Tower of Power, just to name a few. Known for her gutsy and honest vocals, her songs and music invested with soul and spirit, this band moves "easily through Texas style grease and blues into Memphis soul or New Orleans flavored grooves and all points in between with fun abandonment."
