Tommy Castro is on a non-stop mission to bring his blistering blues, soulful vocals and stellar band to as many people as possible. In May 2010, he won four 2010 Blues Music Awards—including his second B.B. King Entertainer Of The Year Award (the highest award a blues performer can receive) plus Contemporary Blues Male Artist Of The Year and Contemporary Blues Album Of The Year (for his latest Alligator studio CD, "Hard Believer").
Blues Revue says, “Tommy Castro can do no wrong…soulful, heartfelt vocals, and exquisite, stellar guitar work. A seamless blend of blues, gospel-flavored R&B, soul and roadhouse rock.”
Entertaining crowds in San Diego since 1992 ,The Swing’n Kings might be categorized as a blues band. But during an evening with The Swing’n Kings you can hear music ranging from the smooth swing of Duke Ellington to the rock and roll of Chuck Berry, jump blues of Louis Jordan, R and B like Otis Redding,or the hard driving sound of Stevie Ray Vaughn.
The Swing’n Kings have gained respect in the San Diego Music Scene by sharing the stage as the opening act for such nationally known artists such as Robben Ford and The Blue Line, John Mayall and The Blues Breakers, and Leon Russel.
