Bob Castell Blanch @ Uva Trattoria | Bob Castell-Blanch has worked as a professional guitarist for over twenty-five years throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. The electric and acoustic guitar along with a computerized soundtrack is at the heart of the music he performs. He uses the latest technologies to record and mix these sound tracks to a computer format, which he plays back through a small sound system during performances. This results in giving the live performance a quality rivaling anything played on the "smooth jazz" radio channels today.

His style of music ranges from light jazz to standard jazz to R&B by artists such as Antonio Carlos Jobim, George Benson, Carlos Santana, the Rippingtons, Sting, Toni Braxton, The Yellow Jackets, Whitney Houston, Miles Davis, Earth Wind & Fire, plus some of his own original material. He successfully blends his electric and acoustic guitars to create an atmosphere that is pleasing to audiences ranging from a cocktail environment and extending to that of a concert setting. Bob Castell-Blanch has recorded and performed with such artist as Narada Michael Walden, Sister Sledge, Stacy Lattisaw, Pete Escovedo, Sheila E., Carl Carlton, Ammi Stewart, Wayne Wallace, The PHDS and many others. He currently is actively involved in production work and song writing in his recording studio at his home as well as performing live throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

Lydia Pense & Cold Blood w/ Rick Stevens @ City Winery Napa | Lydia Pense & Cold Blood debuted when the Fillmore was at its peak as one of the nation's musical Meccas. Owner Bill Graham was so impressed with Lydia's voice and the sound of the band that he immediately signed Cold Blood to his new record label. During the span of six original late-60's, early-70's albums, Lydia Pense and Cold Blood helped, along with Tower Of Power, forge their own specific brand of funk/soul and R&B which came to be known as East Bay Grease. That music still holds up today, proving that great music is timeless and will continue to inspire generations to come.

The show will be opened by Rick Stevens former lead singer for Tower of Power, whose "You're Still a Young Man" was the band first hit single and to this day remains their "Signature" song. Anointed by the "Queen of Soul" herself, Aretha Franklin, as "One of the Great Soul singers of the his generation" Rick went on to have hits like "Down to the Nightclub", and "You've Got to Funkafize" for Tower. Rick Stevens is "Back on the Streets Again!"

Tommy Castro & The Painkillers LIVE @ The Uptown w/ Shauna Marshall of Nuclear Blonde |

 “I’m always moving forward, going outside of my wheelhouse, listening to new music and incorporating new ideas,” says award-winning guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Tommy Castro. “The contemporary blues scene is full of fresh, new sounds. It’s an exciting time.” Castro is famed for his signature brand of tough, rocking rhythm and blues and will be performing at Uptown Theatre Napa this summer on Friday, July 17th. Tommy will be sharing his turbo-charged Alligator Records album, The Devil You Know, where Castro strips his music down to its raw essence as he rockets into the next phase of his storied career. 

Born in San Jose, California in 1955, Tommy Castro first picked up a guitar at age 10. He came under the spell of Eric Clapton, Elvin Bishop, Mike Bloomfield and other blues rock players early on. As he got older, Castro moved forward by investigating the past, falling in love with the blues guitar work of Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Freddie King, Buddy Guy, Elmore James and singers like Ray Charles, Wilson Pickett and James Brown. By his late 20s he was playing in a variety of San Francisco-area blues and soul bands.

Castro joined Warner Brothers artists The Dynatones in the late 1980s. The much-loved band had a huge fan base and toured the U.S. constantly. He honed his chops with the group on the road for two years, performing live all across the country and sharing stages with major artists like Carla Thomas and Albert King. He formed The Tommy Castro Band in 1991 and won the Bay Area Music Award for Best Club Band in both 1993 and 1994. With his local fan base quickly expanding, he released his debut album in 1996 on Blind Pig. The album won the 1997 Bay Area Music Award for Outstanding Blues Album, and Castro also took the award for Outstanding Blues Musician that same year. He began touring nationally, picking up new fans everywhere he went.After years of playing guitar-driven blues and R&B backed by a tight horn section, Castro introduced The Painkillers live in 2012, creating a lean, mean four-piece lineup, with the drum chair now held by David Tucker. Fueled by Tommy’s voice and guitar plus bass, drums and keyboards, the band released the 45rpm single Greedy. Greedy quickly became one of Castro’s most-requested songs. An attention-grabbing video for Greedy has already received over 150,000 views on YouTube. The Chicago Sun-Times calls his music “fiery and soul-drenched.”

Castro views the harder-edged sound of The Painkillers as a natural extension of the music he’s been making since he was a teenager. “The Painkillers really get me back to my roots. It feels to me a lot more like it did when I first started playing with my friends as a kid. Bands were always just three or four guys playing for the fun of it,” Castro recalls. Now, Tommy Castro And The Painkillers are pushing the music to another level.

With special appearance by Shauna Marshall of Nuclear Blonde!
