The Boscov Berks Jazz Fest has got the blues this year — and lots of it.
The fest’s original lineup featured some of the biggest blues artists in the business. And now, the fest has added another blues concert, featuring Tommy Katona & Texas Flood and their amazing “Stevie Ray Vaughn Tribute.” Katona and Texas Flood will perform on Saturday, March 29, 2 p.m., at Building 24 Live. Tickets for this show are not available on Ticketmaster. You can purchase tickets at Building 24 Live or online at Ticketfly.
Tommy Katona & Texas Flood has become one of the premier blues bands in all of North Texas. Evolving from the original tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Texas Flood pays tribute to the legends as well as the future of the blues through their own music and style. With an in-your-face show and raw high-energy playing, Tommy Katona takes the listener on a journey through the blues.
