"We bought two RB Continentals, one for me and one for Scott Southerland, our bass player. They absolutely rock."
Castro, winner of the 2008 Blues Music Award for Entertainer Of The Year, is famed not only for his hard-hitting impassioned vocals, soaring guitar work and his blues-infused, rocking R&B sound, but also for his striking, original songwriting and exhilarating stage show. According to The San Francisco Chronicle, Castro navigates seriously funky Southern soul, gritty big city blues and scorching rock. His silvery guitar licks simultaneously sound familiar and fresh.
Publications across the country, from The Washington Post to The San Francisco Examiner, have sung Castros praises. Guitar Player called Castro the hardest working bluesman on the scene today. The Philadelphia Inquirer declared, Castro plays infectious, roaring roadhouse romps with incendiary licks and a touch of New Orleans soul. Carlos Santana, with whom Castro has performed, said, Tommy Castro has the voice and the sound to touch everybody's heart.
