The Fabulous Thunderbirds are ready to rock Park City
Concert will feature blues, rock and soul
The Fabulous Thunderbirds bring Texas Roadhouse-steeped musicianship and good time, blues-rock to the Eccles Center for the Performing Arts stage on Dec. 29.
Best known for their platinum certified song, “Tuff Enuff,” the T-Birds come to Park City hot on the heels of their latest release “Strong Like That.”
Led by smoky-voiced founder Kim Wilson, the band continues to keep it real with blues and a whole lotta soul. The Fabulous Thunderbirds have evolved from their original straight blues band style to incorporate R&B and rock ’n’ roll. The band’s current members include Jay Moeller on drums, Johnny Moeller and Mike Keller on guitars and Randy Bermudes on bass—with Wilson on vocals and harmonica.
“The Fabulous Thunderbirds has a versatility and energy that transcends generations, reaching back to the time of Muddy Waters and creating a modern sound with deep roots,” says Teri Orr, executive director of the Park City Institute, the nonprofit that is producing the show. “They’re musicians who are held in high regard by the likes of the Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton. And they’re going to put on a rollicking, rocking show. We’re excited to have them on our stage.”
