Racky Thomas Band

8 pm  $12


“.....they’re the rare breed who aim to give their vintage sounds a timeless edge. ....Thomas exhibited casual charisma blowing harmonica lines and growling vocals through his amped harp mike. ....It was blues, but full of energy and soul. The way the music used to be.” - TED DROZDOWSKI, Boston Phoenix

One of the coolest guys this side of the Mason-Dixon, Racky Thomas lives and breathes the blues. The Racky Thomas Band hails from Boston, but plays the blues as though they came right out of postwar Chicago or the Mississippi Delta. The band formed in 1995 and has been performing throughout the northeast to enthusiastic audiences through out the region and beyond. With energy and passion paralleled to that of a Southern snake charmer revivalist, they continue to earn rave reviews from critics and music enthusiasts alike, opening for blues greats such as Luther ‘Guitar’ Jr. Johnson, Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland, Paul Rishell & Annie Raines, and Susan Tedeschi.

On Saturday February 20th, Racky Thomas brings his homegrown Delta-roots style to Chan’s Fine Oriental Dining for the celebratory CD release of Goin’ Home. Audiences are invited to take a trip down memory lane at this storied venue that have played host to numerous music legends for over three decades. On Goin’ Home, Thomas draws from a wide range of influences to come up with a musical ‘gumbo’ of blues, gospel, country blues, boogie, and fifties rock and roll. Racky Thomas and his bandmates have been torch-bearers of the blues for nearly twenty years and are known for their diverse influences within the blues idiom and jubilant, uplifting live performance
