ABOUT THE PERFORMER
After performing for several years in the Austin, Texas, blues scene, the band won a recording contract with Takoma/Chrysalis Records and later signed with Epic Records. The Thunderbirds’ blues style mixed Texas blues with the harmonica-laced swamp blues sounds of Slim Harpo and Lazy Lester. The single “Tuff Enuff” was featured in the 1986 film Gung Ho. It was also featured in the film Tough Guys, as was the follow-up single, “Wrap It Up”, which went to number 50 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
