The Billy Thomson Band is a groove oriented classic rock bar jam band unlike any bar band you've heard before. We sound like a tightly synchronized classic rock groove machine that could explode at any minute, if you will... We play the songs you love, in a way you didn't realize you would love better. Our original music is cut from the same mold: compelling lyrics, catchy melody, and a groove that is relentless.
The "Live at Tyson's Tavern" project captures the band at a very special moment in our evolution. We were just over a year old at the time, and the music was growing and blossoming every night we played. Each show was unique and full of surprises as four serious musicians who played for the love of the art came together to forge their distinct voices into a sound that was far greater than the sum of its parts. The CD was tracked at four different shows at our favorite local watering hole in Baltimore, Tyson’s Tavern. Later it was edited and mixed with love and care to bring the magical energy of those performances into your listening room.
Regrettably, Tyson’s Tavern disappeared a couple years ago, so in addition to marking a pivotal point in the growth of this dynamic music ensemble, this CD also stands as a tribute to one of the finest live music venues the great “blue collar music” city of Baltimore has ever seen.
