Tommy Odetto started playing guitar when he was in his teens. His early inspirational figures spanned genres led by Elvis Presley, the Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Jimi Hendrix, and Jeff Beck.
Being raised in the Bay Area, Odetto rose to popularity quickly—at 15, he was already sitting in with bands at local clubs in Fairfax, CA and playing gigs alongside Marin County Blues legend Otis Scarecroe. It wasn’t long before his buzz and talent won him Guitar Center’s King of the Blues guitar award. Along with his band, The Bad Jones, he has opened for Foreigner, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eddie Money, Living Colour, and, most recently, was featured at BottleRock Napa Valley.
