 Check out the brand new CD:"Wrong Side of the Blues".
  My son, James, with the band.

TRAMPLED UNDER FOOT . . .what a joy to hear this band sing and play.  Watching the band perform is a pure delight.  This band is polished, professional, high energy, personable, and they also happen to be family; two brothers and their sister, which would account for the fact that there are two left-handed guitarist's in the group.  The Blues have never sounded so good.

TUF is currently in the running for "Blues Band of the Year" and the "Sean Costello Rising Star Award".  The voting closes on August 31st.  Check out the website for further details.  TUF is a featured act and popular attraction on the the Tommy Castro Legendary Rhythm and Blues Revue blues cruise.  TUF were the winners of the 2008 International Blues Challenge and Nick Schnebelen was honored as the 2008 Albert King award winning guitarist.  TUF has a new CD out: "Wrong Side of the Blues".

The night before they played Salina, they had been playing at a bar in Kansas City.  While they were inside giving their concert, someone hooked onto their trailer which contained their freshly minted new CD and their sound equipment and drove away.  This is a terrible thing especially since they are just getting their start.

Even with all this going on, their performance was spectacular.  If you get a chance to go and see them in concert, make it a point to check them out.  They are well worth the price of admission.
