Southern California's Lighting Guitar Ace, Brad Wilson, has completed over 75 tour dates with his band in the first half of 2005 and is set to begin the next series of shows.

Brad is a barnstorming regional favorite and takes to the road with his power trio, playing songs from his latest solo record while adding traditional blues tunes from an upcoming release titled "Rockin' The Blues".

This year's Mid State Rally held in Paso Robles on Labor Day weekend is the biggest and best Thunder Bike rally in California. Brad will be performing on the main stage at the fairgrounds September 3rd and 4th. If you're anywhere near this wonderful Central California coast town, please come by and see the show!

Touring to support his well received self-titled solo record, this native Californian has played nonstop, with a tour schedule that has him performing close to two hundred shows a year! Wilson likes his job so much, he refers to his schedule as "The Endless Tour."

This award-winning songwriter's musical credits include songs on the NBC television show Passions, the Saturn award-wining movie soundtrack, John Carpenter's Vampires and lead guitar on the film soundtrack to Ghosts of Mars.

An instrumental on Brad's record called "Crusin' The Coast" captures some brilliant guitar work and has become the real life theme of touring along the California coast.

This summer's shows have included The Strawberry Festival in Arroyo Grande, The Joy Ride at the Irwindale Speedway and the largest and best California motorcycle rally, the above-mentioned Mid State Rally in Paso Robles, on Labor Day weekend.

The coast is incredible, but Wilson is quick to point out how much he enjoys every part of California he visits.
Gigging in beach towns like Sunset Beach, Laguna Beach, Coronado Island, Santa Barbara, Morro Bay and Avila Beach is amazing. Scenic places like Solvang, Carpinteria and Venice are really beautiful, and mountain towns like Lake Hughes, Ramona, San Ysabel and Big Bear are green and wooded, yet close to the city. The energy level in the heart of great cities like San Diego and Los Angeles is exciting and fun. California's history is everywhere, especially in a wonderful town like Arroyo Grande.

Brad's record is in all the California indie music stores and you can also buy it online. Radio DJ's around the world are playing many of the CD's songs on their shows: "Rocket," "All Kinds Of A Fool," "Got the Feeling," "Sundown And The Cowboy," "Crusin' The Coast," "The Healer" and "Black Coffee At Sunrise."

The hard driving schedule is paying off both with new fans and opening the door for the next record.
When asked about all the traveling and playing shows so frequently, Wilson responded "Meeting people and making new friends is the most rewarding part of my job."
