Isn't January meant to be quiet?

When Tom first began gigging, someone with much more experience told him to expect January and February to be quiet months. Yet, January has often proved to be busy for Tom and 2015 has been no exception, with a number of private parties celebrating birthdays and anniversaries, a corporate function as well as his regular appearances at Vercelli's in Hexham and Marabini's in Morpeth.

Tom Wyllie Riders for Health 001
In 2013 Tom was asked to perform at the inaugural Riders for Health Ball at The Newcastle Marriott at Gosforth Park. The event was a big success and raised a lot of money for a really worthwhile cause. So, when they decided to hold a second Ball on 24th January, they turned to Tom again - this time with a bigger set. as yet, we don't know just how much money was raised, but judging by some truly enthusiastic bidding in the auction, it will have been a very worthwhile figure. Our thanks to Chris and all his organisers for asking Tom back!

Another highlight of January was his gig at Vercelli's, Hexham. It's a lovely restaurant, with lovely staff, and 10th January was a busy night! Tom starts off in the restaurant and later on moves into Bar Kalanta. there were people coming on off the street to join in the fun - so much so that not everyone who wanted to move through from the restaurant could get in! It was shoulder to shoulder! The good news is, that Tom will be appearing there regularly throughout 2015, and will be there on New Year's Eve! That's a long way off of course, but he will be back there on Saturday 7th March.

In the meantime, February brings with it more private parties and a return to La Torre in Bedlington - another lovely restaurant. Tom will be back at Marabini's too. Before those though, why not come and see Tom at the fabulous Horton Grange Country House Hotel for Valentine's Night? In fact,
Tom will be there on both Friday 13th and Saturday 14th February. The food is outstanding, there will be red roses for the ladies and even Romcom's showing in one of the rooms. Hope to see some of you there?
