Tommy G just announced a mini tour popping off on the East Coast. Keep reading to see if he’s hitting up your town…


(San Francisco, CA — June 1, 2007) – Bay Area icon Tommy Guerrero is hitting the east coast for a rare string of shows in late June.  The mini-tour kicks off Thursday, June 21 in Philadelphia and follows with shows in Brooklyn, New York and Harrisburg, PA.  The line-up features special guests Bing Ji Ling and Orb. 

Tommy Guerrero, a one-man groove factory on record, will be joined on stage by three backing band members on bass/ keys/ drums, while he does his thing on guitar.  Guerrero’s latest release is From The Soil To The Soul (October 2006/ Quannum Projects).  The album is marked by TG’s signature sound of soulful and melodious organic instrumentation, infused with latin rhythms and bluesy downtempo wistfulness updated with a gritty, almost psych-rock vibe.  Live, the guys will have the stage reverberating with bare bones funk and pulsing, hypnotic riffs as they spontaneously paint a portrait of Guerrero’s muse, the city of San Francisco.  

This August, EA Sports is releasing a new video game called SKATE; Tommy handled a portion of the soundtrack (20 minutes of original score) and did a Gangstarr remix for the game, alongside producers Dan The Automator and Z-Trip.  While on the east coast run, Guerrero will stop by the studio for NPR’s World Cafe in Philadelphia for a live performance/ interview. 

Bing Ji Ling is a singer /multi-instrumentalist/ ice cream fanatic who writes catchy, sugary soul ballads full of hooks and texture, harmonious swing and playful flirtatiousness.  His lush croon really grabs you live, as do the hot ladies he enlists to pass out free ice cream.  Bing Ji Ling has two albums out on Kreme Kül Productions—doodle loot doot doodle a doo and Fire & Ice  Cream.
