voted Best Jazz! 

Great news-- for the third year in a row my band has been voted 'Best Jazz' in STL in the Riverfront Times Music Awards!  Huge thanks you to you all for your support!  

Twangfest! 

We have been invited to play the grand 20th Anniversary Year Twangfest next month!  The phone call asking if we'd like to do it was funny.  A certain amount of it was me explaining that I'm not much of a twang-er.  Not to worry, I was assured.  They wanted us to be there, so I said yes!  We are playing Thursday June 9 at Off Broadway with Hurray For The Riff Raff and Nikki Lane.  (I told a friend I was a little embarrassed because I hadn't heard of these bands, and he said, "It's okay.  They know your brother."  Haha!  Anyway, yes... very, very excited about this.  Here is a LINK TO TICKETS.  

I have made some changes to Guerrilla Swing leading up to this show and to a summer of fun concerts.  Kyle Honeycutt is behind the drums; Josh Holdridge on bass; Matt McKeever on woodwinds; Kristian Baarsvik on woodwinds; and Leslie Sanazaro will be playing keys and singing with us for a few shows!  We have a bunch of new tunes that we are excited to play, not to mention a handful of songs I have wanted to play since the Ambiguous "They" days but haven't had the vehicle.  Yeah... I'm excited.  This Twangfest show is going to be great.   Hope you'll be there!

Robust 

Tonight I play Robust Wine Bar with Kristian on sax.  I've had this gig on the first Thursday of the month at Robust for years, now, and every month it is some of the most fun I have playing music.  I've been practicing all day, and I can't wait to play tonight!

Halloran at The Moon! 

Next Wednesday, April 6th I will be back at Pop's Blue Moon, this time with guitarist Joe Park.  We will be playing three sets of original music from 8:00-11:00, and there is no cover charge!  Hope to see you! 

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, JazzReview.com (8/11/2005)
