Tommy Castro & The Painkillers

Tommy Castro & The Painkillers

United States | Blues, classic rock, soul

The six-time Blues Music Award winner is coming back to Europe!

The BB King Entertainer Of The Year has played over 6000 concerts worldwide and is now celebrating his 30th band anniversary along with the release of his new album A Bluesman Came To Town.

The last tours in Europe (2017, 2019) were such a lasting experience for Tommy Castro that he decided to play more concerts with us. He is now implementing this with concerts throughout Europe.

Born in San Jose, California, he started playing guitar at the age of 10 and takes inspiration from Eric Clapton, Elvin Bishop, Mike Bloomfield and other blues rockers. He later drew inspiration from Muddy Waters, BB King, Freddie King, Buddy Guy and Elmo James. His singing role models are Ray Charles, Wilson Pickett, James Brown and many more.

At the age of 20 he began to develop his own style with all the influences mentioned. An extravagant mix of blues and soul that is second to none. He describes his style as "Funky Southern Soul, Big City Blues and Classic Rock".

No blues fan should miss seeing this superstar live!
