Highlights - 2013


Some highlights of Tom’s year, 2013...

A Tom & Doug Concert! Tom & Doug and guests performed LIVE on September 7, 2013 at Cafe Diem in Ames, Iowa. The concert capped off KHOI-FM's 1st Birthday Celebration.

Tom participated in “Band Together For Dawn”, a day-long fundraising concert held on October 12, 2013 to raise money for Dawn Raia, owner of Lambertville’s City Market and Caffe Galleria. Tom provided live music all day, before anyone got to the live music out back.

Shown above conferring with video Director Debbie Pisacreta, Tom videotaped and edited the event. The DVD set was given to Dawn as a keepsake of the outpouring of community love and care.

"Jingle Bell Rap" appears in the Lambertville Historical Society 2013 CD, presenting holiday songs from Lambertville musicians. Tom's Holiday band "Santa P & the Elves" recorded the song with Doug Gentile, Joe Bezek, Shelley Lightman, Mary Michaels, Anne Irving, Debra Pisacreta, Pamela Schopf, John Irving, Eric Henderson, and Will Stone.
