Featuring Joe Samolinski, Tommy Tainter, Adam Thoms, and the brothers Vang, Alex, and Anthony, The Blue Room is a six-year-strong rock n’ roll project with its roots in Altoona, and titling the record Akirema. That’s “America” backwards. Kind of. Akirema is an ambitious summary of The Blue Room’s six-year catalog. “It’s a description of the music as a melting pot,” said Anthony, the band’s drummer, who conceived the title. Like the United States’ own allusion to a cauldron of cultures, The Blue Room twists several influences and styles to power Akirema’s magnetic energy.
