  • Description
"Castro plays gritty, string bending blues like a runaway soul train. A glorious blend that rocks the soul and lifts the spirits....Potent painkillers from a musical madman." -- No Depression
"Tommy Castro put on a sterling and thoroughly professional performance, with original material and some fine guitar work on display. Among the cream of the crop of what modern blues has to offer." -- Blues & Rhythm No. 304
"Tommy Castro puts the fun and funky in the blues. Crank it up…the songs bear the standards of traditional fiery blues but take a more soulful approach, with smooth lyrics and melodies you feel rather than just hear." -- Daily Herald (Chicago)
"Tommy Castro is a soulful singer and stinging guitarist. Method to My Madness is a fine collection of gritty, funky, and rocking originals and covers." -- Boston Globe
Night after night, Tommy Castro, a fierce and fiery road warrior, fervently delivers his driving, blues-soaked, soul-baring music to fans all over the world. The road is where he honed his guitar playing to a razor’s edge. It’s where he learned how to captivate an audience with his intensely passionate vocals and his memorable songs, licks and grooves. It’s where he learned to turn his band into a dynamic, high-performance engine, able to bring down the house with a soulful ballad and then bring fans to their feet with a blistering blues rocker. In the words of Blues Revue, “Tommy Castro can do no wrong.”. The Shedd's pleased to welcome Castro and his crew back. Don't miss it.
