Lito and the Blackbirds, a Fort Worth-based power trio cover band, performs renditions and interpretations of Southern, Blues, Folk and Roots Rock tunes. The band is influenced by artists such as Tom Petty, John Mellencamp, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jimi Hendrix, Neil Young, The Doors, Cream, Creedance Clearwater Revival and many, many more.
Lito and the Blackbirds are Lito Rodriguez on guitar and vocals, Chad Deen on Drums and Thomas Blasucci on Bass and Vocals. Formed in 2017, the members have more than 60 years of combined experience and are excited to bring a specially-curated selection of songs from their favorite artists for a blues rock experience to a venue near you!
Lito and the Blackbirds are born of many vital elements - including a trio line-up that comprises some of the most hard rock and blues inspired talents in the Fort Worth/Dallas area.
These collaborative players have previously played in bands that opened up for touring acts, such as Quiet Riot and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Yet there's still nothing quite like the 'supergroup' sound of Lito and the Blackhearts: eloquent, fierce, explosively bluesy - and thrilling, old-fashioned rock n roll!
