Shakespeare Pub presents presents Tommy Dardar.
A 40 year veteran of the music business, Tommy Dardar is a consumate vocalist, as well as a true blues harp master. Dardar plays a powerful brand of swamp rock steeped in the traditions of Louisiana Zydeco and blues masters such as Bobby Bland and the legendary Jimmy Reed.
Tommy Dardar recently finished his regional tour of the Southwest United States in support of his latest release "Fool for Love". Produced by Tony Braunagel (Taj Mahal), the CD was cut over four days in Los Angeles, and features former members of Bonnie Raitt's backup band.
From the swaying grace of the title cut, to the all out stomp of Voodoo Queen, this CD cooks from start to finish! It is a steaming cauldron of creole swamp blues rich with the traditions of all the styles that Tommy and his band bring to the table. Tommy's Music moves you and makes you want to move, whether to celebrate your joy, or bury your pain. Please check out the samples on the audio page and experience for yourself the magic of Tommy Dardar.
In the past, Tommy has played for such blues greats as Jimmy Reed, Lightning' Hopkins, Mance Lipscomb, Juke Boy Bonner, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Ben E. King, Lloyd Price and Percy Sledge.
Tommy has opened for such artists as John Lee Hooker, Bo Didley, Willie Dixon, Bobby Bland, Joe South, John Mayall, Joe Simon, Johnny Winter, Chicago, and The Neville Brothers.
