“An inspired blend of high-energy blues, R&B and roadhouse rock…soulful, celebratory vocals and exquisite, stellar guitar” –Blues Revue

Award-winning guitarist/vocalist Tommy Castro and his band The Painkillers will perform a series of shows — dubbed the “Six Strings Down Tour” — with fellow guitarist/vocalist Mike Zito. They will perform at The State Room in Salt Lake City on Sunday, December 2, 2018.

Tommy Castro & The Painkillers are currently on tour in support of their latest Alligator Records release, STOMPIN’ GROUND. Over the course of his career, guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Tommy Castro — a six-time Blues Music Award-winner — has played thousands of shows to hundreds of thousands of ecstatic fans. Castro, along with his band, The Painkillers — bassist Randy McDonald, keyboardist Michael Emerson and drummer Bowen Brown — plays music that is guaranteed to fill the floor and raise the roof. With seemingly telepathic musicianship, the Painkillers bring an unmatched passion to Castro’s blue-eyed California soul and hard-rocking, good-time songs.
