Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival: TOMMY CASTRO & THE PAINKILLERS

Posted: February 27, 2014

Tommy Castro has been recording since the mid-1990s and his music has taken him from local stages to national and international touring. His popularity was marked by his winning the 2008 Blues Music Award for Entertainer of The Year. After years of playing guitar-driven blues and R&B backed by a tight horn section, Castro introduced The Painkillers live in 2012, creating a lean, mean four-piece lineup. Castro, along with The Painkillers, will unquestionably be easing pain, lifting spirits and filling dance floors the same way he’s been doing for decades—only now he’s packing an even more feral punch.

The 25th Annual Simi Valley Cajun & Blues Music Festival will be held on Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, May 24th & 25th, 2014. 2014 promises to continue our tradition of bringing fans a full weekend of nonstop award-winning entertainment, more food choices than you can sample in two days, and activities to keep kids of all ages entertained too.

The Cajun & Zydeco Stage will showcase continuous music each day featuring the best Cajun, Creole and Zydeco music acts.

The Blues Stage will feature some of the most talented and renowned Blues & Roots acts in the world both Saturday and Sunday.
Both stages feature lots of viewing space plus large dance floors. In addition, this family friendly event has a giant kids area featuring bouncers, rock walls, specialty acts, crafts and talent shows.  There are also food booths and many crafts and merchandise booths.
