The Fabulous Thunderbirds

Mettant en vedette Duke Robillard et Kim Wilson
Some thought that this mythical group from Texas wouldn't get over the departure of Jimmie Vaughan: they were underestimating the Fabulous Thunderbirds' talents at finding a recruit. Guitar player Duke Robillard has turned out to be equal to the task. These fabulous birds have been preening for more than two decades, opening concerts for unknowns like Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones. Their last stint at the Spectrum goes all the way back to 1984 but it's still remembered. Drawing inspiration from the classics of R & B and rock'n roll, which they play in their own inimitable fashion, and interpreting their own compositions, the Thunderbirds just give it all they've got. Harmonica player Kim Wilson, a founding member, explains: "We're a party band. When people corne and see us we don't care what they do. They can crawl on the floor." You heard the man! Get crawlin'!
