Monday, Feb. 4, 6:30 p.m.—KILLINGTON— Doug James and Joey Leone are set to take over The Foundry’s stage on Monday, Feb. 4 for another jamming evening of Monday Blues Night! Music starts at 6:30 p.m.

Inspired by his mother, Doug James taught himself to play saxophone at an early age. This led to his interest in music, and eventually his passion for the baritone sax. Other interests include the tenor saxophone and bass clarinet. James’ career started when he joined Duke Robillard’s band, Roomful of Blues, in 1971. Since then, James has recorded extensively and toured internationally with notable blues stars including  Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, LaVern Baker, Helen Humes, Colin James, Freddie King, Charlie Musselwhite, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Junior Walker.

In 2001, James released his self-titled debut album which features “Sax” Gordon Beadle of Detroit, Michigan.
