Tom Waselchuk in Concert
My solo performances have almost almost never been concert settings. Last January (2019) at the
Wild Hog I performed a collection of my favorite material from a now quite long career in music. It went better than I’d hoped, enough so that I’ve decided to do another show. There were quite a few songs I didn’t get to.
Here’s my blurb from last year, which is still accurate:
Tom Waselchuk has been active on the Madison music scene since 1980. He’s performed numerous times at every Wild Hog in the Woods location since the Green Lantern Co-op days on University Avenue (!) with bands such as Stone Oak Bluegrass Band, The Katzenjammers, and Rubato Brothers, and in collaborations with Dave Fallow, Victoria Mecozzi, and many others.
Tom’s résumé includes more than folk music. He’s well versed in jazz and swing (Full Count Jazz Band, Harmonious Wail) as well as pop and country (Marcy & the Highlights, Cris Plata and Extra Hot). He maintains vibrant guitar duet with Doug Brown (for over 25 years) and more recently with the amazing rhythm ace John Parrott. Tom has led his MAMA award-winning band The Dang-Its since 1998 and in 2017 formed an “all-star” Americana ensemble called The Honey Pies with Brown, Jodi Jean Amble, and Matt Rodgers.
Tom is excited to present a concert featuring his favorite songs spanning his long and varied career.
