When it comes to the blues today, there are a handful of guiding lights to make sure the music stays true to its powerful source. The sound of pleasure and pain that first sparked musicians to create such a sound is a force that can never be underestimated. The mojo has to be there. For Jimmie Vaughan, he's dedicated his life to making sure the blues not only stays alive, but remains full of life and an inspiration to all who listen. It's a spirit he holds close to him, and for over 50 years of holding the blues close inside him, Vaughan isn't about to stop now.
The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards once said, "The blues. It's probably the most important thing America has ever given the world." to which Jimmie Vaughan would likely add, "Amen".

Performing in the style of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, The Prophecy Show has spared no details when it comes to the costumes, choreography, music, lasers and fog. With more than 10 million albums sold, the original Trans-Siberian Orchestra has inspired generations of fans to rediscover the multi-dimensional art form of the rock opera. Meanwhile, on the road, they have become one of the world’s top acts, with Billboard magazine naming TSO as one of the top touring artists of the past decade.

The Prophecy Show delivers all the flash, flair, and musical magic to some of the more intimate venues across the country. Each of these musicians possess several music degrees and have been hand selected by Producer and Lead Guitarist Thomas Rudebeck, who prides himself on giving the audience the best possible production and sound available.
