The Fabulous Thunderbirds w/ Kim Wilson are an American blues act most famous for their late 1980s rock hits, “Tuff Enuff” and “Wrap It Up (I’ll Take It).”

Led by harp player Kim Wilson, in its heyday the band included guitar great Jimmie Vaughan, brother of Stevie Ray Vaughan.

The band is popular with musicians and has opened for the likes of the Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton and helped reintroduce blues-rock to mainstream audiences in the late 1980s.

In February, 2000, The Fabulous Thunderbirds made history, becoming the first band ever to be broadcast on the Internet using high-definition cameras.

“The boys of The Fabulous Thunderbirds are the conveyors of some of the most hard-driving, soul-searching blues found anywhere today.… These guys aren’t a throwback band, playing tunes to a crowd of nostalgic rock and rollers. The Fabulous Thunderbirds are a working blues band who keep it fresh with new songs largely written by Wilson, and a score of albums that would stock any CD kiosk or digital playlist with some of the most genuine, heartfelt American music written in past 40-plus years ” –The Daily Advance
