Thanks to Vicky whose hen night it was, at Marabini's, on Friday. Thank you for calling Anna Foster on air this morning and telling the North East what a great night it was! We wish you all the very best for your forthcoming wedding, and a long and happy marriage.

Last night, Tom performed at Marabini's again, and Giovanni himself said "Tom just keeps getting better!"
Friday was a great night, the restaurant was fully booked, and there were folks who had eaten during happy hour, and having heard that Tom was singing, stayed until late into the night, all of which made for a busy night, and a great atmosphere!
Tom has recently got to know Anna Foster from Metro Radio, who came along with her lovely family, to see Tom perform, and she and Tom sang "All I Ask of You" from Phantom of the Opera. Very impromptu, poor Anna wasn't given a chance to warm up, perform a sound check, indeed she isn't used to singing with a microphone - but the diners were treated to a very special moment - it was fantastic.
Afterwards, Anna said "Tom, you were superb, well worth the hours journey! We have had a brilliant evening, we must sing together again!" But Anna - if you are looking in, we'd all like to thank you too - you were brilliant. You and your lovely family, made it a night we'll all remember!
Thanks too, to the many people, who made a point of saying how much they enjoyed the evening, and of course, as ever, to Mrs Sylvia Orrick, and husband Peter, who were seeing Tom perform for the fifth time!
Don't miss Tom's next appearance at Marabini's on 8th June 2012!
Last Saturday, 12th May, saw the 2012 Mayor's Civic Charity Ball take place at Morpeth Town Hall. The event raised funds for local charity, Barnabas Safe & Sound.
The Mayor, Cllr. Phil Taylor adopted the charity for any fundraising he undertakes in the role of Mayor, having been impressed with the support it gives to young people who might possibly end up being homeless.
Gillian Turner, Town Clerk, organised the event, and, having heard Tom perform at Marabini's in Morpeth, asked him if he would provide an hour of live entertainment, before the Disco. Tom's repertoire went down very well, he had guests dancing from the start, and ended up singing for just over an hour and a half!
Tom has become known for his classical and musical theatre repertoire, but here he performed swing, dance and pop - which all went down really well, demonstrating what a versatile singer he is.
Gillian Turner later said "We were all up dancing and
singing by the end of the first song. Everyone, including the Mayor, agreed that the evening was a HUGE SUCCESS and Tom was a fantastic performer - with Tom singing something for everyone - young and old!!".
Tom would like to thank all those involved with the organisation of the event, and especially the Mayor, and Gillian. He hopes too that it was a successful night for Barnabas Safe & Sound!
Tom's next public performance is this Friday, 18th May 2012 at Marabini's Ristorante in Morpeth. It being Friday, he hopes to start around 8pm

Tom Wyllie, North East Singer, performed again at Marabini's on Saturday night - and it was a night to remember. There was a real party atmosphere in what was a packed restaurant.
As ever, Tom introduced a couple of new songs, including a Julio Iglesias song, Te Voy A Contar Mi Vida. Everyone was having so much fun, he was still singing at Midnight!
It wasn't just the ladies that were up and dancing either. Tom performed his popular version of The Hand Jive, from Grease, which led to some hilarity!....
Finally, perhaps there is some truth that Giovanni and Tom are in some way related - they were even dressed identically on Saturday!

Tom Wyllie, North East Singer, appeared at Close House Hotel, Wylam, last night as guest singer at the Multiple Sclerosis Research & Relief Fund Astor Gala Dinner Dance. The Black Tie event was an impressive fundraiser for the charity, based in Morpeth, Northumberland …………
