For over 30 years, The Fabulous Thunderbirds have been the quintessential American band.
The group’s distinctive and powerful sound, influenced by a diversity of musical styles, manifested itself into a unique musical hybrid via such barnburners as “Tuff Enuff” and “Wrap It Up”. Co-founder Kim Wilson, the sole original member, still spearheads the group as it evolves into its newest incarnation.
“We started as a straight blues band”, front man Kim Wilson says. “We now incorporate a mixture of a lot of different styles. We’re an American music band and we’re much higher energy than we were before.”
The thread throughout the T-Birds career has been the respect the group commanded for its peerless musicianship and devotion to the sounds of the blues, R & B and rock 'n roll. In fact, the legendary Muddy Waters called Wilson his favourite harmonica player and vocalist.
“To be in the T-Birds, you need to understand the different styles of music and different ways of playing,” Wilson comments. “You have to be willing to adopt a more contemporary style. The guys we have now are able to do that.”
Kim Wilson, considered to be "one of the greatest blues harmonica players and singers alive" by the New York Post, is flanked by Jay Moeller on drums, Johnny Moeller and Mike Keller on guitar, and Randy Bermudes on bass.
Don’t miss out on what’s sure to be an amazing performance!
