Texas Blues Tribute Ft. Bobby Thompson + Friends
TEXAS BLUES TRIBUTE: FEATURING THE MUSIC OF STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN, FREDDIE KING, JOHNNY WINTER, LIGHTNIN' HOPKINS, AND MORE!
Blues music that came out of Texas turned the music world on its head. From mainstream artists like Stevie Ray Vaughan and ZZ Top, to legends of the guitar like Albert Collins and Freddie King, there is no doubt that the blues music of Texas will forever influence new generations of musicians. The guitar plays a key role, along with the shuffle, and a tight rhythm section.
On the axe and vocals, Revelator Hill's Bobby Thompson, who has logged many years of touring the nation, with some of his most memorable shows in places like Austin, Dallas, and Houston. He's become a staple of blues-rock guitar on the east coast, releasing 6 albums since 2010. He opened for Gary Clark Jr, while on tour in 2013, and has been a disciple of the Vaughan brothers, showcasing his knowledge of the Texas blues guitar sound and tone.
On bass will be Kurt Kratch, known for his work with Tom Principato, Blueheart Revival, and many more. On drums, Mark Stutso, the backbeat genius that current tours and records as a member of DC's own legendary blues band
The Nighthawks. Don't miss this night a special tribute to the blues music of Texas.
Fiona Silver is a pixie-sized powerhouse, born and bred in NYC, with a take no prisoners punk ethic. Black Book calls her music “gritty and sexual”. During one of her live performances, Galore Magazine said “this kick ass girl has a Presence, with a capital P." Paste Magazine states, "femme fatale, an heiress apparent to Amy Winehouse... or a modern day chanteuse given her spit and sass, Fiona Silver clearly demands immediate attention." Legendary Rock 'N Roll DJ Rodney Bingenheimer (who broke bands like Joan Jett and the Ramones) premiered Fiona Silver’s songs on KROQ, saying the music was “beyond amazing” and continues to spin her debut album Little Thunder now on Sirius XM.
Known largely for her powerful voice and soulful twist on gritty Rock ‘N Roll, Huffington Post calls her “a force to be reckoned with.” Silver melds and bends genres together to create her own sound, capturing both raw power and vulnerability. Culture Collide says, “it is her fearless experimentation with all sorts of genres that we find so cool.” Word of Fiona Silver has recently stretched across the pond to the U.K. where Phoenix Magazine named her a “female pioneer smashing glass ceilings… torching patriarchal rock”.
