From an early age, Tom was brought up on rockabilly and country music from both of his parents, going to see bands as often as he could, along with watching his dad's band.
At 7 years old, his dad bought him his first guitar, a 3/4 size acoustic, and taught him a few chords. He eventually played it so much, he had worn a hole through the guitar body! He then progressed to get an electric guitar, and started listening to guitarists such as Albert Lee, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban, trying to emulate their tone, licks and phrasing.
By 14, he was already travelling up and down the country, playing professionally with shows like the Johnny Cash Story, a tribute to Lonnie Donegan, and an original country band called Midwezt.
At 17, he joined the Elio Pace band, of which had been BBC Radio 2's house band for the previous 2 years. He is still playing for Elio, and they are currently touring all around the UK performing the music of Billy Joel, in The Billy Joel Songbook.
Tom also fronts his own band and his first solo album is due for release on June 29th.
Elvis is alive and well and living in Lincolnshire. At least you might be forgiven for thinking so if you happened to catch Al Duncan's exceptional Elvis tribute act.
Al has been performing his tribute to the King for about ten years now and in September 2008 qualified as a finalist in the Britain’s Best Elvis Competition.
Al has been an Elvis fan since he can remember and performs a dedicated and passionate tribute to the King.
Al says “I personally favour the early Vegas years, because Elvis performed a lot of his back catalogue in his shows so it allows me to perform a wide range of all his best loved tracks.”
Ideal for weddings, corporate events, promotional work or that special celebration event, Al has approximately 150 songs in his play-list, which is enough for a whole evening’s entertainment, or he can do one or two sets, depending on the venue and occasion. Contact 07947 170 806
