WHAT HAVE I BEEN DOING FOR THE LAST 45 YEARS ?
Tommy performed with school bands and a number of popular rock bands in and around the Washington D.C. area, and worked his way through college playing clubs in Georgetown and College Park six nights a week.
After about a ten year hiatus, Tommy volunteered to be in an all adult backup band for a local high school musical event. That was enough to get the creative and performing juices flowing again. Tommy spent the next ten years as the drummer with the band “Overdrive”. He says “I decided that I wanted to put my "dream band" together and THIS IS IT!
"We didn’t set out to put a horn band together, though. We had an amazingly talented sax player, Shoe, already with us. The guy that won one of the slots as lead singer – Matt- turned out to also be an amazing trumpet player. The young lady that we selected as another lead – Angie – plays trombone and keyboards, and the OFU Horns were born!”
What constitutes "my dream band"? A horn band with the nicest people and the most talented musicians I have ever played with - if One Flight Up wasn't a band we would still be the best of friends! We ARE the no drama band!
My passion for music has never and will never die.
