Both a player and a teacher - and now Gretsch Guitar’s newest endorsee! - Tom’s career as a guitarist spans 30+ yrs.  Growing up in Detroit, he learned his riffs listening to everything from Motown to Jazz to Rock to Punk. 

Tom has performed clinics at the Conservatory for Recording Arts in Arizona and is a 1st call side player for acts including Crayon Sky, The Vibe, Chris Parker Project, Tim Sealy Band, Time Bomb, Jeffrey Taylor, and The Sharett Miller Duo. He also teaches guitar and has maintained an active student roster of 20+ students for over 20 years. He is currently pursuing his teaching degree in Music Education and tutors Music Theory at Glendale Community College.

Tom’s original songs have received excellent reviews in Guitar Player magazine and, when he’s not wailing away on his Gretsch Falcon guitar performing for crowds with ’56, Tom can be seen as a soloist or in a duo, playing originals and instrumental interpretations of rock, pop & jazz standards.

Elvis had 4 Top Ten hits that year, alongside Dean Martin and The Platters, and he became a movie star — all in 1956.NOW: ’56…four amazing musicians, individually accomplished in other genres, come together to ask this question: What if all those legends from Sun Records and the Louisiana Hayride never went to Hollywood, never made TV shows and movies, but were still just playing today? ’56 is the answer!
