Do you ever get the feeling there`s a storm coming ? We play the music that we feel deep in our soul. Re telling the classic blues music from T-Bone Walker and Muddy Waters through to SRV, Cream and Hendrix. The band doesn`t try to be like any one of these blues greats, we just play it as authentic as we can. Appreciating the blues for what it is”-Texas Storm Band.
