From early days growing up in the southeast Los Angeles suburb of Downey, California under the tutelage of T-Bone Walker and Big Joe Turner to their emergence as central figures in the eclectic LA punk/rock scene of the early ‘80s to their current status as internationally-renowned influences in their own right, the Blasters have spent their lives exploring and expressing the deep and diverse musical legacy that is best described by the title of their first album: American Music
BAND ON THE RUN : The Beatles and Beyond
Who is Band on the Run? We’re a group of musicians with a common passion for the incredible music of The Beatles. Countless hours have been spent carefully listening to and playing their music with the goal to respectfully rocking it out. In addition to playing, we have attended and enjoyed numerous live shows presented by Houston Beatles tribute bands. When paying attention to others play lists as well as reviewing our own, we noticed that there was a collection of songs that should be included, but were sadly forgotten – the collection of the great hits that were performed by each Beatle after the break-up. So, after dedicated time and practice Band on the Run is prepared to take you on an amazing musical journey of “The Beatles and Beyond”.
