The Kramer Montgomery Band with Aerosmith’s Joey Kramer, James Montgomery and special guests Jim Belushi, James Cotton and The Rolling Stones horn section The Uptown Horns, will take the stage at Outerland on Thursday, July 17.

One of rock’s top drummers joins forces with a legendary blues master and a killer backup section for this show.

James Montgomery will take the vocals and play harp. A modern day master of the harp, he was schooled by the best: John Lee Hooker, Junior Wells and James Cotton. The James Montgomery Band has toured with among others: The Allman Brothers, Steve Miller, Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith, B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, John Lee Hooker and Dr. John. Montgomery continues to sit in with the Blues Brothers Band.

Joey Kramer will be on drums. The legendary drummer and founding member of Aerosmith is stepping out and returning to his roots while Aerosmith takes a break from touring. He began his professional career in the rhythm and blues clubs in New York city and brings a handful of Aerosmith blues-based rockers to the set.

On bass guitar and backing vocals is David Hull, a founding member of the power rock trio Fahrenheit, and bassist for the Joe Perry Project. He also has played with The Buddy Miles Band, Joe Cocker, Ted Nugent, and recently filled in for Tom Hamilton of Aerosmith.

George (Guitar) McCann, a longtime member of the James Montgomery Band, plays lead guitar and sings backing vocals.

Singer-songwriter and master of many instruments, Paul Santo will man the keyboards. He has worked with Ozzie Osbourne, Ringo Starr, Aerosmith, Raspberries, Chris Botti, Jonny Lang, Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Kid Rock and Lee Ann Rimes amongst others.

The Uptown Horns Speak for themselves. For 15 years the autonomous unit has been revered as one of the most respected horn sections in the world. The Horns have toured or recorded with just to name a few: The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, James Brown, B-52’s, Robert Plant, Aretha Franklin, R.E.M. and many others.

Doors open at 9 p.m. Tickets are $49.50, available at the Outerland box office, by phone 508-693-1137 and online at
