The Tommy Castro Band
Arena Theater brings the acclaimed Bay-Area band to the Mendocino Coast. The Tommy Castro Band is one of the most popular and creative roots artists to emerge in recent years. Since starting the Tommy Castro Band sixteen years ago, Castro's career has been marked by one triumph after another: from performing at a tiny San Francisco saloon to opening act on B.B. King's national tours to international acclaim as one of the most compelling artists on the scene. The Tommy Castro Band comes to Point Arena on Friday March 28, 2008; doors open at 7:15 PM, with the show starting at 8:00pm. Tickets are $25.00 advance,$30.00 at the door and are on sale at The Four-eyed Frog and The Sea Trader, Gualala; The Record, Pt. Arena; Tangents, Ft. Bragg; and online at www.brownpapertickets.com. The Arena Theater is at 210 Main Street, Point Arena, CA.

Born and raised in San Jose, CA., Tommy Castro was initially inspired to play the guitar by the likes of Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield and Elvin Bishop, and later by the guitar playing of B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, Elmore James and Freddie King, as well as the vocal stylings of Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and James Brown.

Formed in 1991 the Tommy Castro Band quickly became one of the hardest-working and most popular groups in the Bay Area. Billboard Magazine said, "Castro combines the earthy soulfulness of Albert Collins and B.B. King with the polish of Robert Cray." The band appeared for three consecutive seasons as the house band for NBC-TV's "Comedy Showcase. Castro's music has also been featured in network television programs such as "Nash Bridges" and "The Young and the Restless." The Tommy Castro Band has captured a hold on legions of fans and critics alike around the world with their mesmerizing blend of rock, blues and Memphis soul. Come to hear great music. Come to Dance.
