The current band released Method To My Madness in 2015 and Stompin Ground in 2017, with critics shouting praise and admirers cheering the groups every move. Castro had stripped his music down to its raw essence with the new, smaller band, creating a larger than life sound. Blues Revue said simply, Tommy Castro can do no wrong.Live on stage, Tommy Castro road-hardened musicianship brings an unmatched passion to Castros blue-eyed California soul and hard-rocking, good-time songs. The San Francisco Chronicle describes Castros music as, funky Southern soul, big city blues and classic rocksilvery guitar licks that simultaneously sound familiar and fresh. No Depression says Castro plays gritty, string-bending blues like a runaway soul traina glorious blend that rocks the soul and lifts the spirits.With the group seemingly hitting new heights with every performance, Castro knew the time was right to answer his fans demands for a live album. Killin ItLive captures the band at the peak of their creative and improvisational powers, and features one unforgettable, unpredictable performance after another. This is the best band weve ever had, says Castro. We really got something going on beyond just being good musicians. Every song we play live now has that right feelall the dynamics. It allows us to jam out more on stage. Killin ItLive is what you hear when you see us live.
