In 2012 the layout and decor of the basement was completely remodeled. This included a new bar, more seating, better access to the fridge and bathroom and an upgraded French drain system. The basement is now much more comfortable and practical for both band members and listeners. Acoustics are also better in the new layout. New photos showing the improved layout are in the photo section under 2012 Set-up.
After a few months out in sunny California the great Michael Benjamin has come back home to the NY/NJ area and has rejoined TOM on bass and vocals. We missed our "Rock Star" greatly, but our pal Ben Wiess did an excellent job to "add some bottom" in Benji's absence. We thank Ben for his years of filling in to ensure great jam nights whenever Benji (or Chris before him) were not available.
NEWS - The 12th Annual TOM BBQ will be on Saturday, September 20, 2014. Music begins at at 2:00 p.m. We are very happy to return to the home of Lori Morris in Old Tappan for this year's barbecue. The band will again supply grilling meats. Please bring a side dish or dessert of your choosing. Contact Al to coordinate please. Last year's event was a great success with a large turnout. We are very grateful to Allison for hosting this event for several years.
The TOM fully support "The Wrecking Crew", an excellent and important movie about a bunch of LA session musicians responsible for scores of top hits for numerous famous artists and bands in the 1960's and beyond. Try to see the movie if it comes to your area.
