Hangin’ at The King’s Palace with two “top shelf” Bluesmen. My good friends Boscoe France and Blind-Dog Gatewood
What a great time we had in Memphis for the Blues Foundations International Blues Challenge. A lot of really good Blues and tons of good Southern food.
The competition was fierce but The Beat Daddys made it through to the semi final round falling short of making it to the finals.
We made a lot of new friends and got to hang out with some of our old friends who were also performing.
We highly recommend making it to Memphis for next years’ event.
American Blues Guitarist
Stillwell is a drop-dead guitarist mining the Texas vein…
He is a complete blues guitarist -- one of those you
occasionally catch in a club and think to yourself, “This is the real thing”. “This guy should be famous.”

Drawing comparisons to Tommy Stillwell’s lead guitar playing poses a hazard for any reviewer, owing to the temptation to parade out names like Johnny Winter, Dave Hole, or the late Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Where has this guitarist been hiding? Apparently in every road house, honky tonk and joint in the Midwest.

After hearing Tommy Stillwell play, one can well understand why Emmett would make such a statement. Stillwell’s guitar work is superb, whether he’s playing rocking rhythm and blues (on his Stratocaster), or some fine slide on a well-worn Sears Silvertone.

Tommy Stillwell demonstrates an astounding range of emotional expression on his instrument. He possess the dexterity and speed that nearly all blues guitarists prize. What especially stands Stillwell apart, however, is the conceptual cunning of his solos.
