For the last fifteen years singer/songwriter/guitarist, Todd Tijerina has played his unique blend of blues, funk, roots-rock and jazz. In addition to frequent tours of the US with his band, Todd has worked as guitarist for Chicago-based artists such as internationally revered bluesman, Byther Smith, the legendary Harmonica Hinds, and BB's daughter, Shirley King. Currently based in ABQ, though originally from Chicago, the band is a former winner of Chicagoland's Rory's Blues Talent Competition (1999). This victory funded recording expenses for the group's 2000 release, The Lowdown. Since then Tijerina has released three more albums, Welcome Home in 2004, Now in 2006, and Walk This Road in 2009 which have enjoyed radio play in the US, Australia and Europe.

Todd's unique sound is a result of his own take on songwriting with an emphasis on maintaining potent hooks, personal identity and grooves that cross genre lines. This approach helps explain his musical contribution's relevancy to blues as an evolving art form.

Providing the backbone and punch in TTB's grooves on bass/background vocals and drums/background vocals are Dave Aubol and Jim Magnarella, both of whom have toured nationally and recorded with various blues, funk, latin, rock and jazz ensembles.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
