Blues rocks Eagle Town Park

Daily Staff Report

EAGLE – The Todd Tijerina Band will unleash its fierce brand of cutting-edge blues at Eagle Town Park for a dance-groovin’, funky blues-rock extravaganza Thursday at 6:30 p.m.

The band will perform much of the material from its three albums in addition to well known blues-rock favorites. “Todd Tijerina’s funk and jazz tinged, high-energy blues guitar playing is instantly recognizable in an era inundated with oh-so-familiar-sounding blues guitarists,” writes The Promised Land Entertainment Magazine. “Thick guitar tone and fervent phrasing compliment his blues soaked voice and help explain his popularity.”

Besides his band having won Chicagoland’s Rory’s Blues Talent Competition in 1999, Tijerina has worked as guitarist for blues veteran Byther Smith, the Harmonica Hinds and BB King’s daughter, Shirley King. The Albuquerque-based Todd Tijerina Band has shared the stage with Sonny Landreth, Head East, Canned Heat, Jimmy Thackery and The Drivers, Eddie Shaw and The Wolf Gang, The Joanna Connor Band, Anders Osbourne, Michael Hill’s Blues Mob, The Campbell Brothers, Richard Johnston and Ronnie Baker Brooks, among others. Tijerina is accompanied by his rhythm section of Marco Topo on bass, and Matt Tessler on drums. For more information, visit Todd Tijerina’s Web site at
