Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers are at the Chestnut Cabaret tomorrow night with Dynagroove. Next month, Conwell goes into the studio to record his debut album for Columbia. It will be produced by Rick Chertoff and contains songs from his locally released album, Walkin’ on the Water. Sound familiar? It's the blueprint from the Hooters' path to stardom. The result should be about the same for Conwell, a smoking performer who combines the intensity of pub rocker Graham Parker with a deft pop touch and a great guitar style on his hollow-body Guild.
