Born in New York, Tommy growing up during the 60's experience was heavily influenced with that era of music. Getting the chance to live through such a great time in music and to absorb the energy of it by attending so many great live show's such as the1969 Woodstock Festival, Watkin's Glen, many Fillmore East shows and the whole "Village" scene. My greastest influences are Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix (who I had the pleasure of meeting and sitting down with), Santana, Janis Joplin, Deep Purple, Joe Cocker, Jeff Beck, Allman Brothers, Vanilla Fudge,Rascals, all of Motown, The Blues, and R&B. Tommy also had the honor to work on a solo project with a member of the Vanilla Fudge and the New Rascals Bill Pascali. It was a great experience to work with 36 great well known 60's Bands. The album is called "Where Broken Hearts Go". Tommy has fronted such bands as The Tribe, Street Life, Magic Dragon, Maverick Soul Band, and currently playing out with the band "VITAL SIGNS".
