Tommy Castro and the Painkillers

Saturday, 17th at 1:30pm (Main Stage) // Saturday, 17th at 10:00pm (The Moon at O'Bannon's)

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. 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. In the words of Blues Revue, “Tommy Castro can do no wrong.”
Hailing from the San Francisco area, Castro, along with his band, The Painkillers, play music that is guaranteed to fire up fans and leave critics searching for new words of praise.
