Rhythm on the River presents The Fabulous Thunderbirds featuring Kim Wilson

Unfortunately, due to the weather, the event tonight is canceled and we are not able to reschedule. We apologize for the inconvenience.

For more than 30 years, The Fabulous Thunderbirds (http://fabulousthunderbirds.com/) have been the quintessential American band. Led by Kim Wilson, songwriter, lead vocalist and commander of the harmonica, the Grammy-nominated band’s distinctive and powerful sound mixes Texas blues and southern rock with harmonica laced swamp blues and R&B. Because of their peerless musicianship and unique vocals, they have a huge worldwide fan base and have always been favorites of top musicians, leading to world tours with The Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton. The Fabulous Thunderbirds originated as a blues band but has manifested into a distinctive and powerful sound that offered fans hits like “Tuff Enuff”, “Wrap It Up” and “Powerful Stuff.” The band is still devoted to the sounds of blues, R&B and rock n’ roll but continues to incorporate new experimental sounds.

Live Music starts with Hadden Sayers Band at 7:30 p.m.

Native-Texan Hadden Sayers (http://haddensayers.com/) and his band are masters of their instruments but its Hadden’s passionate songwriting, which twists roots rock, blues, and soul music into something completely fresh that sets them apart from the pack. The soul-blues guitar slinger provides the perfect blend of raw underground blues and passionate showmanship. Nominated for the 2012 Song of the Year Award at the 33rd Annual Blues Music Awards for his critically acclaimed single “Back to the Blues,” Hadden’s heartfelt lyrics and innovative guitar work provides an experience of warmth, soul and depth.
