Tom Smith, from Long Island, New York, is a singer, pianist, composer and bandleader. He has performed for 30 years in top venues, nationally and abroad for club dates, jingles, cruise ships, concerts, corporate and charity events, resorts and all major NYC Hotels…Tavern On The Green, The Rainbow Room, The Supper Club, Swing 46 and Harrah’s, Atlantic City. In 1997, with drummer friend Charlie Busterna, he formed the Tom Smith Big Band: a 19 piece Swing Band of top NYC musicians, which celebrates the hits of the Big Band Era & the Songs of Frank Sinatra. They offer superbly executed vintage arrangements as performed by Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Harry James, The Dorseys, Count Basie, Artie Shaw, etc. as well as a complete catalogue of Standards featuring the works of legendary songwriters: Berlin, Porter, Rodgers & Hart & Hammerstein, Cahn & Van Heusen, Julie Styne, the Gershwins and their peers.
And remember: If big bands are too big for you…we do smaller bands, too: Jazz and Swing Groups or a single pianist for cocktail parties…ensembles sized just right for your more intimate wedding, event or celebration.
Our Clients: Through the years I’ve had the pleasure of appearing on the same bill with name acts like: Sammy Davis, Englebert Humperdinck, Suzanne Somers, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, Dick Shawn, Rodney Dangerfield, Milton Berle, Jackie Mason, Jerry Lewis, Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gormé and more. We’ve performed for a diverse clientele throughout the US and abroad. The list of events ranges from annual Holiday Parties at the Yale Club in NYC for the law firm of former Secretary of State William P. Rogers (Rogers & Wells) to weddings and family gatherings from Long Island to San Antonio, Texas. I’ve sung in jazz clubs in Paris, Hotels in Rome and birthday parties in Hicksville, NY. Swing Music is a specialty with devoted fans and I take special care to interview prospective customers as they interview me. When the match is just right….the jobs are a delight and they go into our “scrap book” of favorites.
