Voted one of the top 100 guitarists of all time in Rolling Stone Magazine, Johnny Winter is a guitar hero without equal. Signing with Columbia Records in 1969, he immediately laid out the blueprint for his fresh take on classic blues with a powerful combination of authentic Texas funk and his own high energy interpretation for the legions of fans just discovering the blues via the likes of Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton. Constantly shifting between primal country blues in the vein of Robert Johnson to scorching electric slide guitar, Johnny has always been one of the most respected singers and influential guitar players in rock and the clear link between British blues rock and American Southern rock ala the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
The Tabasko Sound Kitchen is a midwest band performing blues, soul, and funky groove oriented rock covers and originals. The well-honed blues and soul guitar stylings of David Salzman (8 Miles South, The Chicago Diamonds) and the at once scorching yet tasty blues-rock playing of lead guitarist Don Laferty (Kevin Purcell & The Nightburners) work together to build the dynamic framework of the TSK sound.
