US | blues rock, 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 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 has now decided to play more concerts with us. He is now implementing this decision with concerts all over Europe.

Born in San Jose, California, he started playing guitar at the age of 10 and was influenced by Eric Clapton, Elvin Bishop, Mike Bloomfield and other blues rockers. He later took 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 of the influences mentioned above. 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 the opportunity to experience this superstar live!
