Tommy Bankhead

Mr. Tommy BankheadTommy Bankhead....a legendary name synonymous with St. Louis Blues music. Just mention his name to any true St. Louis Blues lover, and you'll see what I mean. Born in Lake Cormorant, Ms. on October 24, 1931, we are certainly blessed that this talented man chose to make St. Louis his home. Mr. Bankhead's history reads like a Blues " Who's Who", beginning with his early days playing with Woodrow Adams and the 3 B's, Joe Hill Louis, Sonny Boy Williamson, Howlin' Wolf, Elmore James, and of course, our local Blues Patriarch Henry Townsend. From his beginnings here with his group 'The Landrockers", Tommy then went on to form his locally famous group The Blues Eldorados, and could be seen playing down in Soulard every weekend for over 17 years. For more on this St. Louis legend, read his interview
