Horton Grange Country House Hotel

Lollo Rosso is here!!!!!

It is two months since we posted here, which is crazy! In that time Tom has sung at countless restaurant gigs, at Charity Balls, the Kielder Marathon, and local weddings.
All the gigs were great fun. Tom helped raise £1,100 at Stocksfield Golf Club for MIND - well done to Richie Armstrong who went on to run in the Great North Run, again. Ali and Richie were kind enough to say "Tom was great at our charity night – he fitted into the venue well and helped getting all the guests involved with his fantastic voice and personality! A must for every night to get the audience involved!

Well done too to everyone at Muscles for Mitchell. They held a Superhero Ball at Bannatyne Hotel in Darlington, and Tom provided the entertainment, whilst over £3,000 was raised on the night! A fantastic effort. Kate Tinkler was also very kind to send us a message saying "Tom was a great find. Recommended by a friend and easily booked with quick and straight forward, honest communication. Tom was flexible, he has a broad repertoire and was a lively and fun entertainer at our Superhero charity ball. He was a great sport and everyone thoroughly enjoyed his performance on the night. Will definitely be booking him again!"

Congratulations to Gemma and Kenny Buxton for whom we had great fun recently providing their Wedding Celebration entertainment:

"Just wanted to thank you once again for making our wedding celebration on Sunday night at Barluga so amazing.
We had the best night, hope you enjoyed it too.

Now, many of you will know, that Tom performed on the opening night at Lollo Rosso Italia in Morpeth. This is the new venture owned and run by our good friends Giovanni Marabini, and Miguel Perez, formerly of Marabini's. There has been so much love shown towards them both and if goodwill could ensure the success of a business, then these two lovely guys already have an enormous winner on their hands! Tom has been back since opening night, and has a couple more gigs booked in this year, but from January will regularly have two nights a month there. Along with the rest of Morpeth (and beyond) we wish them all the very best.

You can catch Tom next at La Torre in Bedlington on Friday 30th October and at Horton Grange Country House Hotel on Saturday 31st October. See you there!

Congratulations and Celebrations!

April saw Tom take a well earned break in the Lake District. Many of you may not know he is a keen walker, trying to fit in ticking off all The Wainwright Fells in-between his busy schedule.

As soon as he got back, he headed straight up to Elligham Hall, where he performed for Mark and Becca Graham at their wedding reception. They had a fabulous day weather wise, a wonderful venue for a lovelyy couple. We wish them all the very
Mark Becca and Tom Wyllie
best for their future together. They were kind enough to get in touch after the big day and said:

“We knew Tom would be good, but he wasn't good, he was fantastic!
Tom was amazing! He really made the evening and the atmosphere was great!
Great set list, great voice and great interaction with our guests.
It wasn't just the two of us that thought Tom was great but our guests did too!
Everyone commented on how great he was!
Thanks for helping to make our day so special!”

Tom followed that up with some great performances at Vercelli, La Torre and Horton Grange Country House Hotel. The latter made for a refreshing change, because Tom was able to sing more of his Classical and Musical Theatre repertoire there. The management indicated that they would love to have Tom back, so watch this space for further dates!

Almost needless to say his gig at Vercelli's went on beyond midnight, and he introduced a few new songs into his repertoire, just to keep everyone on their toes! Mike Brown of Life on Cartoon Motion came along and worked his magic, taking some awesome photos on the night. If you don't know of Mike, check out his website as he is an amazing photographer.

Next public gig is a first for Tom at Davanti Italia, Whitley Lodge. If you haven't been before, come along and check it out - lovely staff, great food, and Tom will provide some fab entertainment. See you there!

Horton Grange and more....

February has continued where January left off! Who said January and February would be quiet?!

Tom was especially pleased to perform at Christine Locke’s Party at The Sour Grapes in Morpeth. It was the first time we had been, and what a lovely wine bar it is. We very much hope to return soon. Tom is available to perform at private functions and will tailor his performance to your needs.

Christine was kind enough to say afterwards:-
“Thank you so much for singing at my party yesterday! Everyone loved you! You just created a fabulous ambience to my afternoon.”

On the Friday and Saturday Nights of Valentines Weekend Tom sang at Horton Grange Country House Hotel. Both nights went extremely well and the Saturday night was packed! Thank you to the many people who were kind enough to take the time to tell Tom how much they had enjoyed his performance. Lots of people bought CD’s but of course if you missed out you can buy them here. Someone even took the trouble to mention him on Trip Advisor!

"There was a North East Singer on in the restaurant and he was excellent"


The good news is, that Tom went down so well, he will be back! Make your reservations now for Saturday April 25th which is set to be his next performance in the restaurant at Horton Grange.

Tom has been talking to the lovely people at The Badger in Ponteland, and will be singing there on the night of Friday 20th March. It’s a charity night – the staff are raising money for the Great North Air Ambulance, but it’s very informal, so why not just turn up for a drink and to say hello?

Finally, on Friday Tom was back at Marabini’s – and with no more booked there for now, who knows, hopefully not for the last time? You can catch Tom next at La Torre on Friday 27th February. The following Friday, 7th March he will be at Vercelli's in Hexham. You will find the details here.
