We are presently working on our first CD- containing all original material. Will be finished in January 2008.



Within a year of their conception, Galveston based Thrill Hill and The Real Deal blazed through the IBC Houston Regional’s with Texas intensity. Tony Hill fronts the band delivering an introspective, soothing style, and blistering overdrive. His experience dates back well into the 60’s touring the south as a drummer and singer with many southern R&B bands such as: The Soul Masters, The Jazz Crusaders, Love Faith and Power (went on to play with Johnny Guitar Watson), and Chris Long. With years of experience, Ray Plummer on drums and Tracey Nicar on bass provide a solid foundation for the multitalented George Pappas who rounds out this foursome playing double duty on guitar and keyboards.
