Celebrate a decade of music in Sun Valley

Paul Tillotson to throw dance party at Boiler Room

Pianist and band leader Paul Tillotson will unite fellow New York musicians James Wormworth on drums, Ken Rich on bass, and Hugh Pool on guitar for a dance party at the Boiler Room in Sun Valley.

"Pool, one excellent blues guitarist and rockin' blues original song writer, will make you smile and mesmerize you with his music," Tillotson said. "Hugh, James and Ken play regularly together in New York City, " as the Hugh Pool Band.

Pool has also shared the stage with such musicians as Patti Smith, Gov't Mule, Leslie West, Johnny Winter, Dave Edmunds, John Mayall, The Fabulous Thunderbirds and more. He has performed on the "Emeril Lagasse Show," "The Mitch Albom Show" and "Late Night With Conan O'Brien." His original songs have been used in network TV, movies, award-winning documentaries and an off-Broadway play.

Tillotson, an Idaho native, has been playing winters in Sun Valley for a decade. His weekly gig is playing après ski in the Duchin Room from Tuesday to Saturday, but a couple times a season he also takes to the stage at the Boiler Room and then fills the River Run Lodge, in early March.

"We play the gamut, from swing and standards to jazz and rock. There'll be great dance music and a good rocking time for everyone," he said. "My favorite part of playing in Sun Valley is the warm response of all the locals and visitors. They coddle me with love. Sun Valley is really a second home for me."
