RCBS Presents Blues and Brews at The Camel - the finest in local blues bands.

Next up: PumpHouse Blues. Friday, August 24, 5 PM, no cover charge.

PumpHouse is a regional band based in Richmond, VA. From soulful originals to their own creative spin on traditional and Chicago Jump/Swing Blues and R&B, they deliver an engaging foot-pumping groove. Wayne Chaplin is on Guitar-Harp (Vista Cruisers, Cosmic Cowboys, Lance Manley Band), with Lutha Lucas on vocals (Church of What’s Happening Now), Pete Daniel on Bass guitar (Last Judgement, Psychedelic Hippos, Lance Manley), Chris Leitch on Trombone-Keyboard-Vocals (Boy Oh Boy, Fighting Gravity, 808 Band), and super percussionist James Bannow on Drums (LA Sessions, USO Tour ++++). Their music is not something you just hear. It's a “Live Crowd Engaging Show Experience”.
