Tommy Castro & The Painkillers

King Center for the Performing Arts presents…

The King Center for the Performing Arts, ASM Global and Elko Concerts are proud to announce and welcome 2022 Blues Music Award Winner of B.B. King Entertainer of the Year, Albums of the Year for ‘A Bluesman Came to Town” and Band of the Year – Tommy Castro & The Painkillers

“I like to keep things fresh and interesting,” says Castro, “Tom and I have talked about making a record together for a long time.  Collaborating with him was even better than I imagined.  I had an outline for the story and then Tom and I talked it out and the songs just started to organically grow out of each other.” Castro continues, “A Bluesman Came To Town isn’t a story about me.  Its pulled from some of my friends’ and my experiences though.  I’ve seen first-hand for a lot of years what its like out there on the road.”

Upon release of A Bluesman Came To TownCastro will hit the road with The Painkillers, performing fan favorites as well as songs from the new album. “I’ve made seven albums for Alligator,” Castro says, “and I’ve never made the same record twice.  I will always try to be my most authentic self.  I give it all I’ve got every time we hit the stage!”
