West Coast Blues Heroes Tommy Castro & The Painkillers at the Albert Rose
Night after night, Tommy Castro, a fierce and fiery road warrior, fervently delivers his driving, blues-soaked, soul-baring music to fans all over the world. The road is where he honed his guitar playing to a razor’s edge, and it’s where he learned how to captivate an audience with his intensely passionate vocals and his memorable songs, licks, and grooves. It’s where he learned to turn his band into a dynamic, high-performance engine, able to bring down the house with a soulful ballad and then bring fans to their feet with a blistering blues rocker. Over the course of his four-decade career, Castro has played thousands of shows to hundreds of thousands of fans and has always left them screaming for more. Castro is a six-time Blues Music Award winner, including taking home the coveted BB King Entertainer of the Year award twice.
