The Captain Legendary Band blends several elements of roots American music with country rock backbone. Their style merges traditional, progressive folk, bluegrass, and rock into a brew that pleases even skeptics of Country and Southern Rock. Originally from Baton Rouge, LA, the band has developed a loyal following throughout the Southeast as well as in Texas. Fans appreciate their vintage style and honest story telling.
TCLB has always been recognized for their high energy live shows and the group was recognized as "Live Band of the Year" from the Academy of Texas Music in 2010. The years of recognition for the band's live performances has led to the release of the double Live album "TCLB Live." This record follows up the band's studio release "Somking Barrel" which received acclaim from fans and critics alike. The release of "TCLB Live" has lead to nominations from The Academy of Texas Music for Vocal group of the Year and Album of the Year.
"I suspect this record's going to have a good, long life here in Texas and beyond!" - Walt Wilkins (On Smoking Barrel)
"Ive seen them shake up a club, and now Ive got a copy of Smoking Barrel and they prove they can do it in the studio, too. What makes this different for me is that theres a tinge of morality floating under the music."
" Smoking Barrel is definitely a great calling card if Captain Legendary is looking to conquer the country."

The band's latest studio release "Lifetime" is scheduled for release in early 2016 coming off of the heals of a successful year that included jaunts to the West coast, Southeast US and a month long European Tour.
