Award-winning blues-rock star Tommy Castro has toured with everyone from B.B. King to Carlos Santana, winning the 2008 Blues Music Award for Entertainer of the Year along the way. His work has earned him comparisons to such blues luminaries as Stevie Ray Vaughan, ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons and Duane Allman, with "silvery guitar licks that simultaneously sound familiar and fresh" ("San Francisco Chronicle"). Come out and see for yourself why "The Washington Post" described him as "phenomenal and funky," when Tommy Castro and The Painkillers take the stage for this concert at The Rose in Pasadena. They'll be playing tracks from their newest record "Stompin' Ground", among others.
