back from vacation on the Katy Trail 

The kids and I returned from a few days biking on the Katy Trail last night. I had a fantastic crash earlier in the day that destroyed my front wheel and cut our trip a bit short, but no injuries! 

I'm playing tonight at Robust Wine Bar in Webster Groves with Rob Nugent from 7-10. Hope to see some friends! 



Tonight at Squatters Cafe  

I am playing tonight at Squatters Cafe with saxophonist Rob Nugent as part of the Grand Center Jazz Crawl. 

It's free, and it's a lot of fun. Hope to see some friends!

biting the hand that feeds? 

Not being on Facebook is challenging. 

"It's part of the job," is the phrase I keep hearing. 

Somehow, being a musician now also requires being a social media marketing specialist. 

I am becoming increasingly leery of this. 

Music is music. Digital marketing is digital marketing. 

More and more, the gig seems secondary to the marketing.


I play gigs because music is my life. I hope you will come hear the music.

I am playing tonight at Extra Brut, the little champagne & oyster bar in Clayton, 7-10. Come be fancy with me!

Tommy Halloran performs music anyone would appreciate... He is to jazz as Uncle Tupelo was to country-western or Steve Earle to bluegrass. He possesses the schooling (both formal and hard-knocks) as well as the "chops" of a great jazzman... The basic truths of Delta-blues, swing, Gospel, and Bohemia are deeply rooted in Tommy's songwriting psyche. Like Randy Newman or Tom Waits (who seldom appear in the same sentence), his cooking belies his ingredients. He may not be "Chasin' the Bird", but he's certainly flippin' the bird as a top-rate improviser... Tommy embodies the original spirit of jazz. His blues, his bounce, and his ballads rival great musicians from any era.  - David Seymour, (8/11/2005)
