Tom is a delightful entertainer.  Our guests look forward to his amazing music each time we have him play.

We started listening and enjoying Tom 25 yrs. ago at our local events.  He was great back then, and even more so now.  He recently performed for our son's wedding. What a fantastic event!  Tom could not have been better.  Everyone at the wedding was enthralled, singing and dancing throughout the night. He is gifted both vocally and on his guitar and his talent has grown over the years. Lately we've been out to see Tom at different venues and are always impressed!
