The walls shook from the performance of blues singer and guitarist Tommy Castro! The Painkillers, with bassist Randy McDonald, keyboardist James Pace and drummer Byron Cage helped provide the stripped-down sound that is raw and rockin’ with a Delta groove running like the Mississippi River beneath the arrangement. It was a terrific performance that had the crowd hypnotized.
Thanks to Tommy for posing with our campaign signs and for putting on one of the best shows we have seen in ages. That was really fun — and we signed up lots of folks for the #KeepOregonWell Pledge while we were at it!
Heather Nichelle-Peres caught up with Tommy Castro before the show and chatted about mental health, touring, and self-care.
