Best party in town....

Tom Wyllie returned to Vercelli's in Hexham last night, for what proved to be really great night. This was Tom's second time there, and he sets up both in the restaurant and the bar. So whilst diners were eating, Tom walked the restaurant singing Classical, Musical Theatre and a bit of swing, all to a warm reception. Folk gently swayed - and in the case of Nessun Dorma gave cheers, whistles, and the works!

Later, Tom moved back into the bar, and began moving upbeat. For one or two of his songs, he accompanied himself on the piano (Million Love Songs, Jamie Cullum's I'm All Over It), had people singing along, waving and dancing a little.

We just wanted to say you absolutely made our night with your performance!!! We loved it so much :))) Hope to see you again very soon" - Claire Turnbull
"What a star!  I couldn't believe his repertoire from Puccini to Paolo Nuttini - brilliant." - Pam Pryor

Tom will be back there on
Friday 10th October 2014, and looks forward to entertaining you all again. In the meantime, catch Tom at his next public gig at The Old Storehouse, Amble on Friday 27th June 2014.

The Old Storehouse

The Old Storehouse 13062014
Tom Wyllie, North East Singer, was back at the newest of his regular venues last night. The Old Storehouse in Amble, is a lovely setting for the great food and service they offer. Tom sang for an hour or so, in the restaurant and lounge bar, before moving through into the Links Entertainment Lounge.

As you might expect, he had folk singing and dancing along and ended the night with a World Cup appropriate rendition of Nessun Dorma. Later again, he even did a version of Gary Barlow and Robbie Williams' "Shame", with resident DJ Brian Bush.

If you missed it all, you can catch him at his next gig there on
Friday 27th June!

Congratulations to Rachael and Alex

Tom Wyllie, North East Singer, Alex and Rachael Robson
Our congratulations to Rachael and Alex who married yesterday. Their reception was at Alex's parents home in Tranwell Woods, in a fabulous marquee, and whilst the weather was a little unkind (serious understatement) everyone, and most importantly Rachael and Alex, had a wonderful day. The rain was absolutely torrential, and after Tom's performance he slipped on the lawn in full DJ, so off to the dry cleaners with that tomorrow!

Tom sang during the Champagne Reception, and again both during and immediately after the Wedding Breakfast. One lovely moment saw Tom gather the children together with him on the stage to join in with "Any Dream Will Do". Rachael and Alex were after an informal feel to the day, and Tom aided that with classical/musical theatre and swing numbers during the Champagne Reception, but later getting guests singing along and up dancing. For the evening guests danced the night away to a Ceilidh Band.

Rachael later got in touch with Tom:

"Just a quick e-mail to say thank you so much for Saturday. Alex and I (and all our guests) thought you were brilliant and everybody loved you. You helped make our wedding day the massive success it was and we will definitely recommend you to everyone! We have had nothing but positive feedback from our guests. We loved the faxt you had people dancing during dinner and the kids had the best time following you around. Thanks again Love Alex and Rachael xxx"

A wet day in the garden....

Tom Wyllie Alnwick Garden Jun 14
Wednesday saw Tom return to sing at the beautiful Alnwick Garden, and although it was a showery day, many of the visitors who were there, looked in on Tom in the cafe. In fact quite a few spent a couple of hours with lunch or a coffee, sitting in an easy chair and enjoying Tom's music.

Thank you to the many of you who came over to tell us how much you enjoyed his performance. It's always a pleasure to receive feedback, and we appreciate people taking the time to offer it. In fact on Wednesday, there were admirers from as far afield as New Jersey!

If you missed Tom's performance on wednesday, he will be back on
Wednesday 6th August, and now there is a new date booked on Wednesday 10th September too. So why not come along and enjoy the stunning gardens, and listen to Tom?

New Entertainment at The Old Storehouse

The Old Storehouse Restaurant
On Friday night, Tom Wyllie, North East Singer, was entertaining for the first time at The Old Storehouse, Amble. This newly refurbished restaurant and pub, on Links Road, is run by Park Leisure, along with The Links 5 Star Holiday Park. It's open to the public and the food and service is excellent!

Tom began by singing to the diners in the restaurant (and those in the surrounding lounge bar), with a mix of classical and easy listening songs. Judging by the generous feedback, from many of the customers, and by the frequent applause - he was received very well.

In fact, so much so, that the management said that the owners of caravans, next door in The Links Owners' Only Bar and Entertainment Lounge, were worried that they were missing out! Tom was invited to perform his second set there, on stage. Of course those who have seen Tom perform will guess that he didn't stay on stage the whole time! Before long he had the Lounge singing and dancing. He surprised most of the audience, by rounding off with Nessun Dorma and O Sole Mio. It was a thoroughly enjoyable night, and our thanks go out to the management and staff, including Brian Bush in The Links Lounge, who made his sound desk available for a quick transfer from The Old Storehouse Restaurant, and who controlled the lights for Tom's performance.

Check out Tom's gig page, as he is now booked in at The Old Storehouse through into December. He will perform a set in the restaurant, and then a set in The Links Owners' Lounge. He will next be there on Friday 13th June.

If you can't wait that long, Tom will next be appearing in public at
Alnwick Garden Cafe for a lunchhtime concert this Wednesday, 4th June. Again, details are on his gig page.
