[Video] Kim Field and the Mighty Titans of Tone

Kim Field is a highly-respected Director in the Windows Server UA organization. In fact, he was one of the people that interviewed me when I came over to this org! So, when I heard that Kim was the lead vocalist for a blues band called the Mighty Titans of Tone and that they were playing a gig in Seattle, I figured that I would show up mainly just to support a co-worker’s endeavor and duck out a bit early.

Much to my surprise, what I found instead was a real treat. Not only was the band top-notch, but Kim’s vocals and harmonica play far exceeded anything I could have expected. In fact, I later read that the Seattle Times wrote of Kim’s play, “The finest blues harmonica player in the Northwest”. From Option Magazine, “Some of the smoothest harmonica work you will ever hear”. After hearing Kim and his band play, I have to say that these reviewers were spot on. Not only is he a great frontman in terms of talent, but he also has a wonderful on-stage presence and easily jokes with the members of the audience. One moment I remember in particular was a heart-warming Frank Sinatra cover that he dedicated to his parents who were in attendance.

All in all, it was a memorable evening of rhythm and blues. I highly recommend that you take the opportunity to see Kim Field and the Mighty Titans of Tone play live if you have the opportunity. You will not be disappointed. Until then, here are some songs that I captured with my FlipVideo. Enjoy and don’t forget to visit the band’s calendar to see where they’re playing next!
