Tommy Castro and the Painkillers

Fitzgerald’s Night Club gets raves from the New York Times, and it is one of the best music venues in the country. Throw in Tommy Castro and the Pain Killers, appearing to promote their new album, “Stompin’ Ground,” and you’ve got a night to remember!

Tommy Castro hails from San Jose, California. Back in the day, hippie folk music and Mexican soul music ruled the town. Slowly, the styles blended. Tommy Castro lists as mentors, Ike & Tina Turner, Janis Joplin, Elvin Bishop and Taj Mahal. Incorporating a style Tommy Castro calls “San Jose DNA,” the band plays unforgettable soul, blues and West Coast rock. In addition to the Painkillers, “Stompin’ Ground” features legends Charlie Musselwhite, and Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo on guitar.

“Gritty, funky, rocking, and original.” The Boston Globe “An inspired blend of high-energy blues, R & B and roadhouse rock…soulful, celebratory vocals and exquisite, stellar guitar.” Blues Review
