Welcome back Tom!

Tom Wyllie North East Singer 29092012
Tom returned to Marabini's last night following a nasty bout of the flu - and it was to a lively welcome. Early on he sang Nessun Dorma, and people were on their feet showing their appreciation. Later on he had people up on their feet again dancing.

There were impressive numbers up doing the hand jive, and Tom sang on until just before midnight, with many dancing on until he finished, by request, with a second rendition of Nessun Dorma! So many people stopped to say how much they enjoyed the night, and although this was his first gig since being ill, it was clear Tom really enjoyed the night too.

Tom has a number of private bookings now, but will be back at Marabini's on
Saturday, 3rd November 2012. Book your table now - if last night was anything to go by it will be a great night.

Apologies and thanks...

Regrettably, Tom was unable to sing at Marabini's last night, owing to him having the flu. This isn't just "man flu" either - we can confirm he has been properly unwell - as have the whole family. He would like to apologise to anyone who had expected to see him there last night, and reassure everyone that he will be there next Saturday, 29th September, 2012.

Thanks to everyone who has sent him their well wishes, and of course to Pete Brown, who stepped in at the last minute to sing to diners last night.

Tom aims to make next Saturday a night to remember by way of apology and thanks!

Gremlins can't stop a brilliant night!

Tom Wyllie at Marabini's 15092012
Tom Wyllie, North East Singer, was back at Marabini's last night, and there were a few gremlins in the sound equipment at the start. But with a few adjustments here and there, he quickly got back on track, and gave diners a night to remember.

Not only did he introduce one or two new songs into his set from MIKA and Coldplay, but he rounded of the night to an ovation for his final number - Puccini's
Nessun Dorma. It absolutely brought the house down!

If you would like to see another of Tom's amazing performances, book your table now as he is there for the next two
Saturdays, 22nd and 29th September, 2012. See you there!

Rock and Rat Pack

Tom at the Hind
Last night, Tom was performing at The Hind, in Cramlington.The night encompassed the full range of genre from heavy rock, through Rat Pack, Musical Theatre, Pop and even Opera!

The Gig was Party Night for Cramlington Karate Club, and featured Blackjack Rock and of course Tom. Blackjack are a talentented band, who play covers of bands such as AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, Free.... Not perhaps the first band you might think of to complement Tom's repertoire! But what they do, they do really well, and if this is your kind of music, then go along to one of their gigs - you won't be disappointed.

In fact, it turns out that the band and Tom have more in common than you might think. Tony St John, Tom's singing coach, also coaches Blackjack, helping them with their harmonising.

After Blackjack's first set, Tom took over singing songs from the full variety of genre that he sings, but after sitting through the band's first set, people were ready to get up and dance. Robin Harper-Coulson of Cramlington Karate Club, and organiser of the night said afterwards -

"Thanks Tom, what a night and what a contrast, both acts that were on were brilliant, one very heavy rock and your vocal set. I still can't believe that you sang for an hour and a half, danced and moved the audience so much without any errors, bum notes or missed lyrics. Thank you for at the last minute taking requests for songs and again were note perfect. I hope you spotted that 10 seconds into your first song that the audience who had never danced as yet were on their feet dancing and joining in with you.

I know on the night you received lots of feedback from the audience, especially about the opera. I think you should change you Facebook status about employment to professional singer as it can be only a matter of time before you are spotted and taken away from us to a wider audience.

Thank you again from us all

No need to add much more than that, other than to say thanks to Robin, the Karate Club members, and of course Blackjack!

Tom is on tonight at Marabini's, and looks forward to seeing everyone there. As ever, the restaurant is fully booked, so too late to suggest anyone comes along, but check out Tom's Gig list, as he'll be there again before long!

Recording again

For anyone wondering how Tom is getting along with recording, he was in the studio last night, and will be there again today.

No hints here yet as to what will be on the new CD, or what it will be called yet. There will be one or two surprises though, and we can say that where crescendo featured a high proportion of Musical Theatre songs, his new CD doesn't!
