While attending Boston University in 1970, where he earned a degree in English literature, Montgomery started the James Montgomery Band. During his junior year, he was hired by the Colwell-Winfield Blues Band to play harmonica and tour with Janis Joplin. By the time he graduated from college his band was on the cover of the Boston Phoenix, heralded along with J. Geils and Aerosmith as the city’s great contributions to the music world. Though he said he loved the academic life when offered a $15,000 job at BU, Montgomery took a $250,000 offer to record and tour with the Allman Brothers instead, and never looked back.
