Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers Are Back!

Pop culture in movies, Netflix and generic radio stations tell us what we’re supposed to miss about the 80s. (Y’know, the same three classic rock songs on a loop.) 

Well, I’ve missed Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers—and I’m so glad this band is back with new music! 

And no record collection is complete until you’ve acquired this core five:

Tribute to Darryl Ray - Ardmore Music Hall, 6/30/2019

The Ardmore Music Hall hosted a matinee concert on June 30 for a tribute to musician Darryl Ray. Proceeds benefited the children of Darryl Jenkins.

A bevy of fellow musicians paid tribute including Tommy Conwell and the Little Kings, Dynagroove, Rockett 88, Matt Wallace and the Blues and the Darryl Ray Band.

DJ Caterina fell in love with the music of Tommy Conwell and the Little Kings in the early 2000s while a college disc jockey at UT-Dallas. 

See Audio Rumble's well-documented adulation here.

RIP Darryl Ray. I will miss you.

Showboats & Grandstanders - New TCYR Album

It's here! The first new official Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers release since 1990's "Guitar Trouble"--not including the release of "Thanks But No Thanks" from the Tommy Conwell store in 2009--and it's called "Showboats and Grandstanders."

The new tracks include seven original songs penned by Conwell and three cover songs, including a Robert Hazard song called ‘Out of the Blue,' a Warren Zevon song called ‘The Rest of the Night’ from the album "The Wind" and a vintage Sonny and Cher song called ‘It’s the Little Things.’

Check out the new album--it's definitely a love letter from Conwell to his band and their fans. 

From a interview:
"Conwell also has immense gratitude for his fans, who financed 'Showboats and Grandstanders' through a crowdfunding campaign."

Buy it today at the Tommy Conwell Store!
