Timm Walker is one of the Bay Area’s most called upon musicians. He is the bassist and founder of the popular funk group BeaufunK. He has also gained a reputation as a funky guitarist, having most recently joined (as rhythm guitarist and lead vocalist) The New Aahkesstra, an assemble formed by legendary Meters’ drummer Joseph “Zigaboo” Modeliste. Walker has also been a core member of Zydeco Flames for over twenty years. He is the song writer of many of the works for which The Flames are well known. In addition to being an established teacher, song writer, producer, and recording engineer, he also toured with The Elvin Bishop Band for several years. He is also well noted for directing and presenting one of the first well known Bay Area “Pro Jam” series events that began at a small venue in Concord, then moved to The Empress Theatre in Vallejo, California. Over the years it has been made clear to those who follow his work that Timm Walker is a special talent - as a bassist, vocalist, guitarist, and has even been seen playing drums in some very noteworthy musical situations.
About Chris Cain:
Chris Cain's jazz-tinged, blues soaked guitar and deep, warm vocals have the maturity and authenticity of bluesmen many years his senior. His expressive style is the result of a lifetime of study and the relentless pursuit of music mastery. His passion and intensity are a blend of his mother's Greek ancestry and his father's soulful black heritage.
Cain was raised on stories of his father’s childhood upbringing on Memphis’ Historic Beale Street and attended his first B.B King concert at the tender age of three. Blues music played continuously on the home stereo and family outings were often trips to concerts. Cain recalls, “I remember when I was a kid, my Dad would be mowing the lawn with the stereo blasting Muddy Waters. When I look back, that was pretty cool! There was always music playing at our house, Ray Charles, B.B. King, Freddie King, Albert King, all the greats.”
Larry Nager (syndicated Scripts-Howard music critic) writes, “Nowadays most young blues players are Strat-wielding Stevie Ray Vaughan-a-bes. Not Chris Cain. With a voice that recalls B.B. King and a thick toned Gibson guitar sound reminiscent of Albert King, Cain is forging a unique style. With his own highly personalized songwriting, “Hall Of Shame” is a giant step in the development of one of the most compelling young bluesmen on today’s scene.”
Through his guitar mastery and remarkable songwriting ability, Chris Cain has established himself as a musical force to be reckoned with. And as San Jose Mercury News music reviewer John Orr writes, “more than anyone else, anywhere, Chris Cain represents the future of the blues.”
