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 with the new layout. New photos showing the improved layout are in the photo section under 2012 Set-up.
NEWS - The 14th Annual TOM BBQ will be on Saturday, September 24, 2016 at a new location - the home and yard of Fatima and Ken Bruhns. Details are on te the calendar but besides being a new location the Bruhns have offered the use of their beautiful inground pool for our party guests this year! Music begins at 2:00 p.m. The band will supply grilling meats as usual. Grillmaster Rob and his able assistant Bud will surely do the same swell job of keeping the burgers, dogs, wings, etc. coming. Guests are encouraged to bring friends and kids as well as some sort of food item or beverage contribution to the party.
NOTE WE NEVER HAVE ENOUGH FOLDING CHAIRS, TABLES, COOLERS AND ICE. Please bring them if possible.
We will feature lead vocals for the first time from our new new bass player, Joe as well as our harp player Howard.
There will be no jam night the Wednesday after the BBQ, i.e. 9/28. If all of us are out of the ER by the following week jam night will return in all its glory on Wednesday, 10/5. Hope to see you there. Guest musicians are again welcome to sit in with us now that rehearsals are back to being jams.
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 or pick up the Bluray or DVD. You won't be sorry.
