Tom has been working with the band almost since it's inception. Whenever our usual percussionist has been unavailable, we have always been able to give Tom a call. If he's free, he'll make the drive to wherever it is the band is playing. Tom often joins the group when we march in parades as well. (He has a habit of putting the marching bass drum on upside down, but hey... he's a drummer, not a rocket scientist!)
We are happy to announce that, starting in 2012, Tom has become the permanent, full-time percussionist for the Chico Bavarian Band! We're all looking forward to having Tom in the band on a regular basis. But just to be on the safe side, we've adjusted our expense budget to cover the increased beer consumption: Tom works up a powerful thirst on those drums!
