Tom "Casino" Caprino Was influenced musically at the age of 10 while learning guitar from his Uncle. Then the "British Invasion" hit. Here they came walking down the street, and no it wasn't the Monkees.. it was the great blues and jazz guitar players- Mike Bloomfield, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Albert King, and Lightening Hopkins too. Not to mention the three louis' Louis Jordan, Louis Prima and Louis Armstrong. Tom writes his songs with story and humor and delivers a smoky mix of melodic guitar stylings, smooth rythyms, and scintillatingly sharp leads. Tom has played with many recording artists in the past but is now stepping out and offering his own unique stylings.
Featured on track 2 "Chopstick Blues" is Dale Ockermen formally of Doobie Brothers fame who lights it up on the keyboards.
Terry "The Pit Boss" Carleton keeps the rhythm shaking and also produced and co-wrote all the songs on the EP
On vocals is Pamela "Lady Luck" Hennings who sings a brilliantly smooth duet on track 3 "I Need You" and does wonderful job with the harmonizing vocals on "Chop Stick Blues"
thanks to Eddie "el gato" Becerra's great Saxophone playing on track 1 "Be My Lady" and Reggie Rockinelli for jumping in on Piano for "I Need You"
Tom is currently in the studio writing and developing a full LP and says this current 3 song EP is just a sample- and there is more yet to come!
