BMHOF Class of 2007
When Tommy Z burst onto the local blues circuit in the early 1990's with Harvey and the Hurricanes, music aficionados would marvel at power and technique of his guitar playing. He would go on to perform with some of the world's greatest players in the blues genre.
Tommy has positioned himself as a top guitarist, singer, and bandleader and now fronts the Tommy Z band which boasts the best local talent in band mates. Tommy has received numerous awards including Top Blues Vocalist in WNY 2003-4 and Top Blues guitarist in WNY five times. In addition to his deep blues influence, he injects jazz, R&B, rock and funk into his original music.
Listing to Tommy in any format is indeed an experience not easily forgotten. Just ask any of the tens of thousands of US troops that Tommy has performed for all over the world - from Japan to Afghanistan and everywhere in between.
