About the ArtistFor 4 decades now "Roots Music For Your Soul" has been the mission as Tom and his band deliver passionate performances of Funky Roots music with Scorching Guitar...
As one reviewer mused: "Be careful, or Tom Principato could easily topple one of your current guitar heroes from their lofty pedestal..." After 38+ years and a career that boasts over 15 albums, 23 "Wammie" awards in numerous categories from the Washington, DC Music Assoc. and over 5,000 gigs which includes over 50 tours of Europe, Tom Principato has been taking his Indie infused eclectic roots mixture of Rock, Funk, Blues and Latin Sounds all over the World----all along the way leaving audiences wowed and slack jawed with his virtuoso talent. One look at Tom's road worn Fender guitars and it's easy to see: Tom Principato plays the hell out of the guitar.
Some audio clips here are from Tom's exciting new recording project with special guests Sonny Landreth, Chuck Leavell (Stones, Allman Bros.), Brian Auger, Willie Weeks (bass, Clapton) Memphis Horns, and Jim Brock (drums Kathy Mattea, Don Dixon)
