was formed in 2015. This group is made up of outstanding musicians who have been playing professionally for most of their lives. They have all worked with several local bands and played with different members at one time or another. But when this group got together they immediately knew that this was something special. Not only is this a talented group but having 4 lead vocalists and 5 part vocal harmonies has set this band apart.
Tom started playing when he was 11 years old in school bands; playing the trombone and the upright bass. He bought his first electric bass when he was 15 and had his first gig 6 months later. Growing up in New York City gave him the opportunity to play everything from Broadway Hits to Punk Rock. After a brief stint in Los Angeles Tom moved to South Florida in 1983. While living in Ft. Lauderdale, Tom was a session and studio musician. He got to play with many acts who came to town to use local musicians. There he performed with: Dion and The Belmonts, Neil Sedaka, Kenny Vance, Norn Fox, The Drifters, The Del Vikings, The Cleftones, Don and Juan, Jimmy Beaumont and The Skyliners, Little Eva and many more. He lived in Key West for 8 years and brags about how his apartment was in walking distance from every club gig in town and he played 5 nights a week down there. Tom has played in a few bands in this area, most notably Cracker Blues. While in Ft. Myers, he has been in opening acts for many groups, such as: Charlie Daniels Band, Blue Oyster Cult, Eddie Money, Night Ranger, Lee Brice and Clarence Carter, to name a few. Oh and Tom did all this gigging while working a full-time day job as a Paramedic. Which he has been able to retire from 3 years ago. Now he spends all of his time playing music and painting landscapes.
The late great sax player from the mid 1950’s Earl Bostic was always a favorite for Harry! So by the mid to late 1960’s and after a few sax lessons and with his parents permission He started playing in clubs while he was only in Jr High School. His short career as a musician had to be put on hold as he took up driving a truck to support his family. After retiring in 2000 he was able to pick up the horn again. Some of the players that stood out for him along the way were, Charlie Parker, Cannonball Aderley, David Sanborn, Michael Breker, Lenny Pickett, and Tom Scott to name a few. God willing He’ll have many years left to enjoy playing!
Some of the groups he's been able to work with since the trucking business gave way to the music business: Too many to mention but here are a few that come to mind Johnny Reed & The HouseRockers, The Bellaires, All Horned Up, The Juice, The Bunch Band, Blind Pass, Bob Hanson & Rockhouse, Tim GoodMan & the Rhythm Kings, Bottom Line, Breezin, Live Wire, The BoogieMen, and a new venture with the Wayward Souls.
