Here's some reviews of Tom’s performances:
Derrick Jordan Vermont Citizens Awareness Network "consummate and gifted performer with a human & compassionate touch...one of the most savvy political songwriters I know."
Michael Stock WLRN, Miami, FL "Does a great job of reminding people of what is really important, and the power of folk music to say it."
Cathy Gilbert Miami Dade Green Party "Tom is fabulous; politically cutting-edge, incisive, warm, & very funny. His raucous political satire & social commentary, quick wit, & pointed humor had everyone laughing & engaged."
Vicki Ryder South Florida Raging Grannies "People are still talking about Tom's performance, which brought just the right balance of biting political commentary, humor, personal storytelling, and memorable music to our house concert. His songs, his voice, and his guitar wrapped it all up into one great package."
