The Fabulous Thunderbirds, the quintessential American band, is playing at Harris Center for the Arts in Folsom on Saturday, May 17.

For more than 30 years, The Fabulous Thunderbirds have put out a distinctive and powerful sound, influenced by a diversity of musical styles, manifesting itself into a unique musical hybrid via such barnburners as “Tuff Enuff” and “Wrap It Up.”

Co-founder Kim Wilson still spearheads the group as it evolves into its newest incarnation.

“We started as a straight blues band,” said Wilson, vocalist and harmonica player. “We now incorporate a mixture of a lot of different styles. We’re an American music band and we’re much higher energy than we were before.”

In addition to Wilson, the current Thunderbirds line-up features Jay Moeller on drums, Johnny Moeller and Mike Keller on guitar, and Randy Bermudes on bass.

“To be in the T-Birds, you need to understand the different styles of music and different ways of playing,” Wilson said. “You have to be willing to adopt a more contemporary style. The guys we have now are able to do that.”

A portion of proceeds from this event will benefit the Sacramento Blues Society’s Blues in the Schools program. Other sponsors include: Palladio Shopping Center, the California Welcome Center, Money Mailer of Folsom/El Dorado Hills, Hampton Inn and Suites in Folsom, Powerhouse Pub, Manderes Restaurant and 1862 David Walley’s Hot Springs Resort and Spa.

This exciting show takes place at 8 p.m. at Harris Center, 10 College Parkway in Folsom. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $30, $37 and $45 and are available at harriscenter.net.
