Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers

If you went to see live music in the mid-Atlantic region in the late 80’s through the 90’s then you probably saw Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers. They were the preeminent bar band. So much so, they signed to Columbia Records and released a #1 hit with "I’m Not Your Man.”  
Tommy had a great run here in Lancaster, PA filling the Chameleon Club for many shows. High energy blues and rock with a fun band all centered around Tommy’s guitar and voice. As a cross between Bruce Springsteen and George Thorogood the band could flat out play. We are lucky to have them at Lancaster Roots and Blues for the 2nd time. 
Since the band rarely performs together this is a real treat. 
When: Saturday, March 10, 2018
Where: Lancaster Roots and Blues Festival - Lancaster, PA
Venue: Main Stage at Lancaster County Convention Center (Main)
Time: 10 pm

Indiegogo TCYR Update from Tommy Conwell

Update posted by Tommy Conwell on new music from TCYR. 🎸

Posted by Tommy Conwell Sep 25, 2017 • 10:36AM

Hi, people. I'm really sorry there have been no updates until now; I'm a little stuck in the 80's, and didn't understand that was not only expected, but required. Anyway, here's an update: The new Tommy Cnwell and the Young Rumblers album will not be done this month, or next, or the one after. We have hit a lot of scheduling roadblocks, and blah, blah, blah. We are working on it, and it's gonna be real good. When will it be ready? Uhhhh... I'll keep you posted! Thank you for your support!!!

FMQB Magazine Cover - 1990

Cover of FMQB (aka Friday Morning Quarterback)—a trade magazine covering the radio and music industry in the U.S.—featuring Tommy Conwell. Dated September 7, 1990.

Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers, “I’m Seventeen,” Columbia 
Philly’s hottest export since the cheesesteak throws a curve ball on this sophomore lead off. Strapping on his acoustic guitar, Tommy turns out your basic across-the-boarder, an easy rockin’ piano-guitar-organ record that’s uncharacteristically Conwell. Hell, even Bruce Hornsby’s right hand does its unmistakable ivory dance. “I’m Seventeen” shifts gears into a Bo Diddley interlude before the nimblest of slide bar solos take over. Tommy’s development as a writer and lyricist is very apparent here, and we fell it’s the perfect follow-up to 1988’s #1 AOR track, “I’m Not Your Man.”

Hall and Oates, Hoagies, In the Pocket and Tommy Conwell

In the words of Philly Inquirer's Dan DeLuca, "Yo, I got your Hoagie Nation right here!" Today a celebration of soul and song with the inaugural Daryl Hall and  John Oates music and food Philadelphia festival at Festival Pier!

"The moving moment came when Charlie Ingui of the Soul Survivors, whose brother Richie died in January, tore through "Expressway To Your Heart." But the entire set was a blast, with Tommy Conwell bashing out "I'm Not Your Man" in a "Lou Reed Was Right" T-shirt and social protest heard in Ben Arnold's take on Pennsbury High School grad Jesse Colin Young's "Get Together." Jeffrey Gaines led the crew through the Nick Lowe-penned Elvis Costello version of "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding."
