About Lightnin’ Willie and the Poorboys

Lightnin’ Willie from Dallas, Texas is a veteran bluesman with in excess of twenty years of touring experience who plays in a traditional blues format. He plays regularly near his home in the Los Angeles area with Grammy award winning producer/guitarist Pete Anderson who produced his latest album ‘No Black, No White, Just Blues’, which features ten clever and powerful self-penned compositions.

Lightnin’ Willie has a distinctive approach to his music. He is a songwriter, singer and guitarist in that order. The sound is an irresistible blend of tradition and spontaneous creativity, with a deliciously insidious emphasis on the groove. It is a compelling, hard swinging brand of blues that, whenever he performs, packs the floor–his audience can’t not dance. He has gone from the low down beer joints to become a staple on the international circuit here and abroad, with wild stops along the way, from London’s Royal Albert Hall Igniter Series to Willie Nelson’s infamous 4th of July Picnic, where he appeared alongside Paula Nelson, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan and Leon Russell. Touring the United States and Europe for over twenty years has given him the relaxed, confident and sometimes humorous quality of a seasoned performer. These attributes have won him stacks of enthusiastic praise from the press while landing his original tunes on numerous film and television soundtracks.

Lightnin’ Willie has the unique knack of bringing his audience into his ‘living room’ and making everyone comfortable while forgetting their problems for a couple of hours. At a recent show with legendary blues man Robert Cray they played to a packed house receiving a well-deserved standing ovation.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Lightnin’ Willie and the Poorboys are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
