About The Founders

Many people ask "how did the Westerly area become the birthplace of East Coast blues?”

The answer is Copley, James, Lataille, Piccolo and Robillard, AKA The Founders.

These world renowned musicians along with a few others from right in our own backyard have played alongside Muddy Waters,Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughn and countless others with performances spanning the globe.

Forming Roomful of Blues as young men they went on to pack dance floor as well as stadiums throughout their careers.

Back together for a special night at The Knickerbocker Music Center where their legendary “Sunday Night at the Knick” shows put Westerly on the blues map.

Adding to this nights enjoyment will be the filming of the documentary “A Town Full of Blues,” a history of the Westerly blues scene.

So dust off your dance shoes, grab a friend and get ready for a swinging night of music.
