Live music for the Blues, Brew & BBQ Festival on Sunday will be provided by two of the biggest names in the world of Blues: Tommy Castro & the Painkillers; (and) SoCal’s Jack Mack and the Heart Attack.

Night after night, Tommy Castro, a fierce and fiery road warrior, fervently delivers his driving, blues-soaked, soul-baring music to fans all over the world. The road is where he honed his guitar playing to a razor’s edge. It’s where he learned how to captivate an audience with his intensely passionate vocals and his memorable songs, licks and grooves. In the words of Blues Revue, “Tommy Castro can do no wrong.” Over the course of his four-decade career, Castro has played thousands of shows to hundreds of thousands of fans, packing dance floors, always leaving them screaming for more. He has released 14 albums filled with original blues, soul and West Coast rock. With their latest album Method To My Madness, the group turns the intensity up another notch.

JACK MACK AND THE HEART ATTACK SMALLER PIC (1)

Jack Mack’s sweet and funky soul music has resulted in a critically-acclaimed thirty-year legacy of success in the music business: seven records, blockbuster movie soundtracks, and hundreds of global television and stage performances.

Their  new album “Back To The Shack” combines strong American/Soul roots with the classic sound and traditions of the Blues. The players include Jack Mack’s World Class horn section, “The Heart Attack Horns” plus one of New Orleans’ favorite sons, Mark Campbell, on lead vocals. They have garnered an ever-expanding and loyal following cementing their legendary reputation. But what the band is most known for is their solid, energetic and stellar live performances.

The Jack Mack entertainment brand has oozed into every facet of show biz, from their incredible live performances, studio recordings, film and TV music placements and the ever-constant shoulder rubbing with celebrities.
