Thunderosa Announces 20th Anniversary Tour Dates

Thunderosa, the Live Music Capital of the World’s hardest working band, is now celebrating 20 years of dirty, southern rock ‘n’ roll. The group has been on a major tour campaign with more shows slotted for March. Check the flyer below to see where the party is headed next.

If Lemmy from Motörhead pricked his thumb with a cactus and then jammed with Down, it would have sounded something like Thunderosa. The band is pure hard rockin’ roll with obvious nods to classic rock bands such as Lynyrd Skynyrd and and ZZ Top, and stoner sludge keeping pace with C.O.C.

Thunderosa concerts are a mix of famous covers and well-known originals. Ladies and gentlemen (for lack of a better term) boogie down to the Austin-based band’s patent groove-that-makes-your-body move, all the while chugging copious amounts of booze. Thunderosa offers “quality arena rock at dive bar prices.”

Although AJ Mac started the band 20 years ago in Tucson, Thunderosa has practically become as staple a sight in Austin, Texas as Willie Nelson Boulevard or Stevie Ray Vaughn’s statue.
