The riddim / bass producer has been tearing up DJ booths around the country for a few years now. But this year, he’s introducing his latest project to the world: the Boogie T.Rio live band.
An accomplished guitar and piano player by the time he was in grade school, Brock Thornton – aka Boogie T – was never a stranger to the blues. He played his first gig at a local Mardi Gras event when he was 11. As a kid he would bring his Stratocaster to the local bars with his dad. He’d join his fellow blues cats in all-night, improv jam sessions. He called them “the original back-to-backs.”
“I’ve been in bands since I was 11, so it’s nothing new,” he says. “I’ve been wanting to do a live project for a long time, but I think its finally the right time in my career to make it happen.”
Given his extensive blues and funk history, it wasn’t surprising when he announced the debut of his latest, live band project. The Boogie T.Rio consists of Boogie T on guitar, Andriu Yanovski on keys and synth, and Frank Castro on drums.
