Coming off a recent European tour of great festivals such as Moulin Blues Ospel 2019 (Netherlands), among others, guitarist Dave Herrero leads the Texas Cannonballs (USA) through a European tour November 21 through December 15 performing Texas Blues, Chicago Blues and Roots Rock!

From the direct influence of a long line of Texas blues and roots rock phenoms such as Gary Clark Jr., Doyle Bramhall, Albert Collins, Chris Duarte, Billy Gibbons, Omar & the Howlers (and many more) comes Texas Cannonballs with an edgy, bluesy, rootsy gift of music to the world, “glinting like switchblades under streetlamps.” With a history of musicians who cut their teeth in bands like Roomful of Blues and the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Texas Cannonballs are poised to take their unapologetic brand of Texas blues, Chicago blues and roots rock to the club circuit in Europe from November 21 through December 15, 2019.
 
Dave Herrero and Hector Watt on guitars and vocals, anchored by drummer Johnny Benoit and bassist Myke Rock, drive songs created in the core of roots music from “oily garage blues” to “infectious, bouncy roots-rockers”. Led by Dave Herrero, who has performed on stage with Gary Clark Jr, Charlie Sexton, Lazy Lester, Felix Reyes, Matt Powell, Seth Walker, Robert Randolph, Mississippi Gabe Carter and many more, the Cannonballs promise to hold nothing back, leaving it all on the stage. Upon the foundation of the imminent, intimate, integral blues and the fiery roots of rock and roll, Texas Cannonballs bring a “drive rarely heard since [the Rolling Stones'] Exile On Main Street, an unrelenting cool.” And blues and roots fans will get nothing less on this European tour.

‘Texas Cannonballs’ is both the name of a band and an album that rocks out with pounding, dirt in the tracks grooves. From the opening rumbustious ‘Fly Away’ to the laid back Stones style acoustic finale of Dreaming’, this is Texan bar room boogie at its best. - Pete Feenstra, Get Ready To Rock (UK)

If you happen to be looking for Dave, he's not difficult to find. He's playing either at Buddy Guys club, or somewhere in Austin. He is a Rock n Roller, a Bluesman…but he adds tremendous soul to the both. His guitar, his voice bleed with talent and i repeat…SOUL. He loves what he does, and man, he does it well. He has played with the likes of Archie Bell and the Drells, Buddy Guy, Gary Clark Jr., Robert Randolph and Nikki Hill. He toured as her bass player and engineered and did horn arrangements on her debut album, "Here's Nikki Hill". He was with Keith Ferguson (bass and founder of the Fabulous Thunderbirds) in The Solid Senders, an Austin Rock'n'roll Band. He went from there to be Lou Ann Barton's guitar player, in the Uncle John Turner Band, TXTKO with Hunt Sales (Iggy Pop), Preston Hubbard (Roomful of Blues) Dave has toured Europe countless times and has played on many European hit recordings.

Since he joined Columbus, Ohio USA’s DIY punk rock band Screaming Urge in 1979, Rock has shared the stage with The Ramones, Cheap Trick, The Busboys, The Fleshtones, The Wailers (of Bob Marley fame), Eric Gales Band, J Roddy & The Business, Warrant and many more. In February 2016, Rock joined Ohio’s Ray Fuller and the Bluesrockers who continually performed at blues festivals and concert clubs across the US and Canada. After the release of their 14-song CD they promptly toured Europe in the fall of 2016 which led to Rock’s engagement in 2017 and subsequent relocation to Belgium in January 2018. Upon his arrival, he began performing with notable Belgian artists such as Mauro Pawlowski (dEUS), Jan Hautikiet, Jamal Thomas (original SOS Band drummer and Maceo Parker's drummer for nearly 2 decades), and Kloot Per W (aka Kloot Perwez, ie; The Misters, The Employees, De Kreuners), and Marino Noppe, among others. Rock was called on to play bass for 26-Time Grammy-Nominee, Blues Hall of Fame Inductee and No. 1 Billboard Blues Chart Artist Bobby Messano on a European tour that took place in October and ran through early November 2018. Rock commented, “I think I’ve been waiting for a Texas Cannonballs all my life and certainly the span of my career has well prepared me for this. I can’t wait for this tour to begin!”.

~ Johnny Benoit ~ 

While living in Austin during the tail end of Austin's glory years, Johnny worked, recorded and toured with several Antone's recording artists including Candye Kane and the Swingin' Armadillo's, Lewis Cowdrey, Guy Forsyth and Miss Lou Ann Barton. Benoit held weekly gigs at the Continental Club and Antone's with David K and the Blackouts, toured and recorded with roadhouse hero, Jesse Dayton ('X'), Texas blues powerhouse Pat Boyak (Rounder Records), songwriter favorites Albert & Gage (Boxcars) and Tish Hinajosa. Johnny can be seen and heard in the Jeff Bridges movie, "Crazy Heart". Johnny is the newest member of the Texas Cannonballs and we are very lucky to have him.
