Blues Seminar with Tommy Castro!
Years ago when I was on a Blues Cruise I watched and listened to Tommy Castro. It was then that I realized that this guy did not get to where he is by accident. Guitarist, singer, songwriter, front-man and band leader, Tommy does it all and does it well. It was at that time I had the idea, that if the opportunity ever arises, I would love to sit down with him and pick his brain for the lessons he has learned that brought him so far in the blues world. I know that he has the talent and the “look” but I also know local players here and in the Denver area that have similar attributes and those players aren’t where Tommy is. It stands to reason that there is a lot more to it.
“Be careful what you wish for”. The PPBC is working closely with Stargazers Theatre this year, so when I found out that Tommy Castro was going to be playing Friday night (10 Feb 2017) at Stargazers, I asked John Hooten (Stargazer’s owner and PPBC supporter) if he thought we could get Tommy to do a seminar for us. It turns out that Tommy is more than willing to give up some of his secrets!
Saturday, Feb 11 from 11AM to 1PM we have Tommy to ourselves! This is our opportunity to try and understand what makes a top tier blue band operate. He is going to talk about the things he thinks are important for a band to really be successful and sound great. There will be a question and answer period!
The seminar is at the Hotel Elegante’ and we are asking $25 for PPBC members and $35 for non-members to just cover our cost. I know that I am going to be there. I hope you will be too. Seating is limited so register early (see below)!
