"I had been playing sax since age 10, and when my brother gave me Johnny Winter's Progressive Blues Experiment to listen to. About 30 seconds into the first song (Rolling and Tumbling), I jumped up and asked my mother to get me a guitar. In 1964 my sax cost $364.00 needless to say My mom was a little more than upset. She told me to save my $ and buy one myself so I did. It was a Kimberly acoustic guitar $5.00 it took me 6 months to raise the cheese!!!!"
“Playing drums since he was 8 years old and self-taught, Tommy has played all styles of music. Playing mostly with older musicians and learning as he went along, he gained experience playing first in basements and garages, (where most of us started out) then festivals, bars, clubs, theaters, weddings, bar mitzvahs, hotels, backyard parties, casinos. boats, parking lots, birthday parties... you name it! His former bands have opened, or shared bills with such artists as Gov't Mule, P funk, Little Feat, Buddy Guy, Joe Bonamassa, Peter Tork and many more. Tommy also gave lessons in private schools for 20+ years..”
“I have been all in on music since the age of 7! I played with a wide array of amazing bands. My biggest influences include Jimmy Smith, Oscar Peterson, and Dr John. Music is magical! I love the rhythm and the interaction with the band and the audience!"
"I started playing guitar at age 12 (I still do) and switched to the bass when I was 18 because no one else I knew played it. I found that it fit me well and it became my passion. And once I'm on stage, I transform and just have a great time getting the groove."
"Music grabbed hold of me at an early age. Nothing was out of bounds. It's the beat, the groove, the group of folks putting it together that excites. Once you're on that stage, you transform."
Give the people what they want. Tight grooves, fun, hard driving songs that go for the throat and don't ever let you go. Wear them out and leave them asking for more. We work to deliver that kind of energy every time we take the stage.
