Whether he’s squeezing out the deepest blues or playing the funkiest soul grooves, legendary blues and soul giant Tommy Castro knows how to ignite a crowd.

He’s performed throughout the world, earning countless fans with sweat-drenched, exhilarating shows. Castro’s bamd, The Painkillers – bassist Randy McDonald, drummer Bowen Brown and keyboardist Michael Emerson – have played hundreds of live shows, coalescing into one of the telepathically tightest units Castro has ever assembled and one of the most in-demand live roots music acts performing today.
