      What was your favorite part of the performance? It was a tie between the grinch and Santa Claus is Coming to Town! (Though the repeated phone call was pretty funny!!)

Bio

It has been said that "music makes us a family." Okay, then: Tom Smith is the fat hippie uncle with the real cool toys.

Weird Al with more books; JoCo with more jokes; Carlin with more Cthulhu. With the lyrical complexity of Ashman and Sondheim, the vocal fireworks of Meat Loaf, the comedic timing of Robin Williams, and the dynamic physique of the Skipper from Gilligan's Island, the... more

It has been said that "music makes us a family." Okay, then: Tom Smith is the fat hippie uncle with the real cool toys.

Weird Al with more books; JoCo with more jokes; Carlin with more Cthulhu. With the lyrical complexity of Ashman and Sondheim, the vocal fireworks of Meat Loaf, the comedic timing of Robin Williams, and the dynamic physique of the Skipper from Gilligan's Island, the only thing Tom won't do is be boring.

The first recording artist to be featured on both NPR's Sound and Spirit and The Dr. Demento Show, and writer of the official chantey for Talk Like A Pirate Day, Tom has been praised by such diverse folk as singer/songwriter Christine Lavin, author Larry Niven, and webcomic creator Randy Milholland. He has twenty-one albums so far, blending comedy, tragedy, horror, science fiction, fantasy, romance, swashbuckling adventure, superheroics, mad science, video games, popular culture, politics, religion, and the occasional recipe with virtually every genre of music you can imagine.

A mainstay at sf/fantasy conventions throughout the Midwest and across the country, Tom arranges and records at home, blending MIDI, loops, and all manner of software gadgetry... but on stage, it's just him and his guitar, in a high-energy performance filled with laughter, shtick, and really, really bad puns.

If you have heard Tom live, you know what we're talking about. If not... brace yourself. And trust us: it'll be a whole lot of fun.
