Marcia Ball:

“Rollicking, playful, good-time blues and intimate, reflective balladry…her songs ring with emotional depth” – Rolling Stone

“A welcome ray of sunshine…Ball is a killer pianist, a great singer and songwriter. Potent blues, sweet zydeco, soulful, fast and furious Texas boogie…heartfelt, powerful and righteous” – Billboard

“Fifty years have passed in a flash,” says Texas-born, Louisiana-raised pianist, songwriter and vocalist MARCIA BALL of her long and storied career. Ball, the 2018 Texas State Musician Of The Year, has won worldwide fame and countless fans for her ability to ignite a full-scale roadhouse rhythm and blues party every time she takes the stage. Her rollicking Texas boogies, swampy New Orleans ballads and groove-laden Gulf Coast blues have made her a one-of-a-kind favorite with music lovers all over the world. With each new release, her reputation as a profoundly soulful singer, a boundlessly talented pianist and a courageous, inventive songwriter continues to grow. Her love of the road has led to years of soul-satisfying performances at festivals, concert halls and clubs. The New York Times says, “Marcia Ball plays two-fisted New Orleans barrelhouse piano and sings in a husky, knowing voice about all the trouble men and women can get into on the way to a good time.” The Houston Chronicle says simply, “She’s as perfect as an artist can be.”

Tommy Castro:

“Castro’s aggressive, inspired attack on vocals and guitar is phenomenal.” – Washington Post

“Tommy Castro & The Painkillers showcase the power of the blues, soul and down-and-dirty rock ‘n’ roll…rousing and infectious. This is energizing, scorching, soul-shaking music….pure pleasure.” – Living Blues

“Tommy Castro is a soulful singer and stinging guitarist…gritty, funky, and rocking.” – Boston Globe

“Pure, funky, old-school soul…Castro lays stinging guitar lines around his throat-searing vocals.” –No Depression

Whether he’s squeezing out the deepest blues or playing the funkiest soul grooves, legendary blues
and soul giant Tommy Castro knows how to ignite a crowd. Over the course of his still-unfolding
career, the guitarist, vocalist and songwriter has released 15 albums ranging from horn-fueled soul
and R&B to piping hot blues to fiery rock ‘n’ roll. He’s performed all over the world, earning
countless fans with his legendary, sweat-drenched, exhilarating live shows. Castro’s band, The
Painkillers—bassist Randy McDonald, drummer Bowen Brown and keyboardist Michael
Emerson—have now been playing together over four years. After hundreds of live shows, they have
coalesced into one of the telepathically tightest units Castro has ever assembled, making them one
of the most in-demand live roots music acts performing today. Billboard says the band plays
“irresistible contemporary blues-rock” with “street-level grit and soul.”
