Over the course of his career, guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Tommy Castro has played thousands of shows to hundreds of thousands of fans. A six-time Blues Music Award-winner, Castro always brings along his band, The Painkillers, consisting of bassist Randy McDonald, keyboardist Michael Emerson, and drummer Bowen Brown. Together, they play music that is guaranteed to fill the floor and raise the roof. Playing guitar since the tender age of 10, Tommy Castro started playing in cover bands in the 1970s and leading his own bands since the early 1990s. Last September saw the release of his latest album, Stompin’ Ground, containing new Castro originals as well as revitalized versions of songs that inspired him when he was coming of age in San Jose, California.
