Yes, Jimmie Vaughan will always be known as Stevie Ray Vaughan’s big brother, the guy who introduced his late lamented sibling to the guitar and joined him on the road before Stevie’s death in 1990. Then there’s Jimmie’s role as a founding member of The Fabulous Thunderbirds, the hard-rocking Texas blues band that earned the respect of Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, and others. Vaughan continues to bring a big electric sound to his music, one that recalls the Chicago style of Albert King as well as the sound of his smooth-playing brother. He brings his Tilt-a-Whirl band to the Santa Fe Railyard Plaza on Thursday, June 5, at 7:30 p.m. The Alex Maryol Band opens at 6 p.m. in the first of the plaza’s free summer concerts.
