Congrats to Kim Wilson, lead singer and harpist of the Fabulous Thunderbirds. He married Amanda Taylor at sea, this past January 30, when the group had a cruise tour.

Photos of the wedding, including a shot of Dion serenading the couple and Amanda in a mermaid wedding outfit are online at the Thunderbirds site.

Kim’s been experiencing so much creativity, and that’s reflecting in more & more solo dates with the Kim Wilson Blues Revue, which features: Kim w/ guitarists Rusty Zinn and Billy Flynn, drummer Richard Innes and bassist Randy Bermudes.
