Don’t miss The Billy Thompson Band bring their “soul-infused, blues gumbo” to old town Winchester! Billy Thompson is performing in support of his highly anticipated new release, “Friend.” Along with Billy’s touring players, this CD hosts guest appearances from Bill Payne (Little Feat, J.J. Cale), Ron Holloway (Warren Haynes, Tedeschi/Trucks), James “Hutch” Hutchinson (Bonnie Raitt, Neville Brothers), Kenny Gradney (Little Feat, Delaney & Bonnie) and Mike Finnigan (Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker).
 
We’ll be serving up “Soul-Infused Blues Gumbo” Sangria (and yes, it’s really blue!)
 

Virtuosic guitar work that has electrified audiences across the U.S. and throughout Europe sets the tone for this veteran blues man’s sizzling performances, combining world class slide guitar and searing licks with soulful vocals and original music—a unique amalgamation of blues styles, with rock, funk and R&B.

Billy has played with legends such as Little Milton, Albert King, Earl King, and Art Neville, while opening for the likes of Robert Cray, B.B. King, Sonny Landreth, The Neville Brothers and Joe Cocker, to name a few. He has performed on Barbara Walter’s “The View”, with the San Diego Symphony, the 2002 Super Bowl celebration as well as for the grand opening of L.A.’s House of Blues. Billy has also accomplished some impressive theatrical stints including lead guitar for the Broadway show “Ain’t Nothin’ but the Blues” and for Tony Award winning playwright Keith Glover’s Bluesical, “Thunder Knocking on the Door,” which he recorded with platinum recording artist Keb Mo.
