Sunday lunchtime saw the first of three performances in the George Runciman Restaurant at Doxford Hall. Tom performed at a wedding there in October, and the management were impressed enough to book Tom for their own Christmas party! They also booked him to entertain in the restaurant, and this was the first of these.
Tom said "I was quick to say yes when Leanne (Clark, Events Manager) asked me to come and sing. Doxford Hall Hotel is just beautiful, and the staff here are lovely - nothing is too much trouble. On top of that the food is just fantastic - it really is the perfect venue!"
Tom will be performing there next on Valentine's Night, 14th February, and then again on Mother's Day - Sunday lunch, 10th March. To reserve a table ring Doxford Hall Hotel on 01665 589700.

Tom Wyllie, North East Singer, was booked for a prestigious private event on Saturday. It was to be a Burn's Night dinner, albeit a day late, however, it was in quite a remote spot, and the organisers took the decision on Burn's Night proper (Friday) to cancel.
This was a great disappointment for all concerned, but, not wishing to miss out on a rare free saturday night, Tom went to Marabini's for dinner to celebrate his birthday! It was the first time Tom had been just to dine - he normally sings! Still, Natasha Magee, singer for the night, got Tom up to sing. We all had a great night, and our thanks to the wonderful staff there, and of course to Natasha.
You can catch Tom there this Saturday, 2nd February, for another great night's entertainment.

In an article in the Evening Chronicle, Andrea Thompson, of Toma Fund, picked out Tom's efforts in Eldon Square Shopping Centre, to highlight the efforts of fundraisers over the Christmas period.
Andrea said "Tom is a wonderful North East singer who has supported our cause for a number of years now and sang his heart out for us in Eldon Square over Christmas.
Through Tom's efforts he has helped raise over £3,000 to date!
Shoppers stop and stare in amazement when they hear Tom sing"
Andrea went on to thank the North East public for their generosity too. The fact is though, we all know what an inspirational lady Andrea is, and when you combine that with the cause, in memory of Jordan, it is a potent mix that makes you want to help. Keep up the fabulous work Andrea!
Last night, Tom Wyllie, North East Singer, was back at Marabini's for the first time since New Year's Eve. He began by telling the restaurant that those who had missed the New Year's Eve party had missed a cracker, but then promised to do his best to create another fantastic party night. He didn't disappoint!
The restaurant was filled to capacity, with some birthday parties, including that of Antonio, who had come all the way from Naples especially and also a hen party. As ever, Tom began with a few of his popular Classical/Musical Theatre numbers, including a special dedication to Antonio - Nessun Dorma.
He moved through some swing and quickly into his dance/party songs. He introduced a couple of new songs to his repertoire again, including The Lumineers' "Ho Hey" which had everyone singing along. Before long, there were lots of people dancing, and it stayed that way through until he finished.
Once again, we want to thank everyone for the lovely comments made to all members of Tom's family. Tom just loves to perform at Marabini's for you! If you missed the night....why?! He'll be back there again on Saturday 2nd February. Make your booking for what is a great way to spend a Saturday night out!
A very healthy and happy New Year to you all! We hope you enjoyed the festivities as much as we all did. Tom was performing at Marabini's, and we all had a really great night.
There were so many highlights, but seeing Tom singing Amarillo with a conga attached to him wrapped right round the restaurant must be one of them. The standing ovation he got for Nessun Dorma nearly blew the roof off - that was another!
The atmosphere was fantastic, we all received so many compliments about, not only Tom's performance, but also Ed's expertise on sound, and later as DJ!
Natasha Magee was one of the revellers and late on gave us a rendition of "Walking on Sunshine" - another highlight! It was, it has to be said, a great party - really - you had to be there. Tom will be back there on 12th January, so, if you couldn't get along for New Year, why not come along and see him soon?
