Kevin Saint James Band at Cafe Nine

Sponsored by: GateHouse Music

The Kevin Saint James Band is a master-class collective of longtime local Jazz sidemen and saloon-singer Kevin Saint James, the recognizable front man from The Crown Street Orchestra, The GateHouse Band, and original lead singer of The Bernadettes. His many years of experience performing Blues, Rhythm & Blues, and Soul music tinges his re-fried versions of hits from The Great American Songbook with a veritable energy that ranges from Lounge-Lizard to Hollerin’ Hurricane and back to Crooning Balladeer, from one phrase to the next. Joe McWilliams totes the heavy load as the main engine on the keys, grounded by rock-solid eloquence on the upright bass from John Mobilio - add that to the technicolor alchemy of Herbert Wilson on the tenor sax and phenom drummer Jeremiah Sutherland - and serenade becomes a symphony.
