Older Brother of famous deceased bluesman Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmie Vaughan was guitarist with The Fabulous Thunderbirds before going solo. After making his debut as a singer with his Brother on Family Style he has released 3 albums: Out here, strange pleasure and Do You Get the Blues
Considered by many to be much underrated, he has never attempted to copy his brother’s highly ferocious style, instead opting for a more mellow sound.
His group, the Tilt-A-Wirl band is fairly unique as it contains no bass player. Hammond organist Bill Willis produceing the bands bass sound on the bass pedals of his B3 organ.
Jimmie Vaugan can often be seen playing with other blues starts such as BB King, Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, Buddy Guy and pedal steel guitarist Robert Randolph.
