Lightnin' Willie and the Poor Boys

Lightnin' Willie and the Poor Boys

Lightnin' Willie is a veteran bluesman with in excess of twenty years of touring experience. He is a songwriter, singer and guitarist in that order, creating a sound which is an irresistible blend of tradition and spontaneous creativity and a deliciously insidious emphasis on the groove.
Whenever he performs, he packs the floor - his audience can't not dance. He has gone from low down beer joints to becoming a staple on the international circuit here and abroad, with wild stops along the the way, from London's Royal Albert Hall Igniter Series to Willie Nelson's infamous 4th of July Picnic, where he appeared along side Paula Nelson, Willie, Bob Dylan and Leon Russell.
Willie and the Poor Boys have toured the US and Europe for over twenty years, making him the relaxed, confident and often times humorous quality of a seasoned performer.

Known as the 'The biggest Little Band On Earth', seize your opportunity to see him live at the Old Town Hall.

" In a world of guitar slingers, this Los Angeles-based bluesman is a rare find. His guitar, a 1950 Gibson ES-5N has a rich, deep tone and Willie's tasteful style create a sound that's light years away from the howling Fender Stratocasters that populate so many modern blues recordings. His understated dexterity on guitar and cool, relaxed vocals form a unique style that's simultaneously laid back and steeped in tradition. " - ELMORE MAGAZINE
