Performs as part of Veterans Benefit Concert Series at Kowloon in Saugus Sunday


SAUGUS – James Montgomery returns to Kowloon, as the James Montgomery Rhythm & Blues Revue, for another go as part of Rockin’ 4 Vets Summer Sun*Days Benefit Concert Series.

Montgomery came to town, from his home in Michigan, to get an education and play a little music. He presented a fresh image, a powerful sound, great backing musicians and a “party ‘til you drop” stage persona. Instead of putting that education to use; he opted to stay and become one of New England’s best-known performers through the 70’s and 80’s. There was no venue in the region Montgomery could not fill and was known for his epic 2+ hour long shows.

Though some contemporaries have long ago broken up, been inducted into, or nominated for the Rock and Roll HOF, James continues to be right where he belongs and relishes in it. Montgomery never noted as a trendy musician, but one who developed a style and has ridden it for over 50 years to a wonderful career.

Along with James, Christine OhlmanThe Beehive Queen“, Saturday Night Live Band’s long-time vocalist will be delivering her own brand of Soul. Ohlman, fresh off her time performing down in Muscle Shoals, is a captivating performer having performed with everyone from Dion to J-Lo.

Soul and R&B vocalist, BARRENCE WHITFIELD, best known as the frontman for Barrence Whitfield & the Savages, described as “a soul screamer in the spirit of Little Richard and Wilson Pickett” will be the other featured performer.

Joining Montgomery and the others on stage will be a very special guest, not known as a musician, but rather as owner of the Boston Celtics, Wyc Grousbeck guitarist!
