My Morning Jacket Members (Minus Jim James) To Serve As Ray LaMontagne’s Band For Summer Tour

 Ray LaMontagne has announced that the following members of My Morning Jacket – bassist Tom Blankenship, drummer Patrick Hallahan, guitarist Carl Broemel and keyboardist Bo Koster well serve as the touring band for his upcoming 2016 North American Tour.  The band will join Ray on the 45 city tour will start in Cincinnati, OH on June 10th and culminate in Dallas, TX on September 24th.  During LaMontagne’s last tour in 2014, The Belle Brigade served as his touring band.

Ray stated, “I am very pleased to announce that the band for the upcoming “Ouroboros” Summer Tour will be Tommy Blankenship, Carl Broemel, Bo Koster, and Patrick Hallahan of My Morning Jacket.

We’ve been throwing this idea around for quite a few years now, and the stars have finally aligned. There has been such positive spiritual energy flowing throughout this entire project. From that first restless night’s sleep when the album made itself clear to me, to the recording of the Album at La La Land Studio with Jim, to getting a call out of the blue ten months later that the Jacket boys wanted to back it up on the road.

There is some serious mojo surrounding this record and I think it’s going to be a very, very special run of shows.”
