The Tyler Thompson Band delivers straight up rock and blues with sheer and brutal sincerity. The rhythm section — brothers Wade and Paul Thompson — supply solid grounding for Tyler’s melancholy vocals and incredible slide guitar work.

The band has gone international, being signed by the German-based Blue Buffalo Record company. They have an album, “Rock for the Soul,” and have a heavy performance schedule in Iowa and the Midwest (available on their web site).

The year 2006 marked an end to a pretty good decade for The Tyler Thompson Band. “I can still remember walking with Paul into the 30th Street Bar and seeing the Tyler Brothers getting after it,” recalls Wade Thompson. “After the show I jumped on stage to see if they might be interested in getting together with our rhythm section.” Mike Tyler adds, “I remember that. You stepped on my guitar pedal and I cussed you out.”
