Tom SartoriFriday, October 12 from 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Tom Sartori started his music career at a the age of 12, in a small suburb of Buffalo, NY. That’s when his father, Tom Sr., started teaching him to play guitar. It wasn’t long after that that young Tom found himself on stage playing trumpet in his father’s wedding band, later going on to teach himself the piano and drums.
Sartori’s musicianship and musical professionalism speaks for itself, and is reflected in his numerous network appearances on NBC, as well as performances with some of the biggest names in the entertainment business – including Jewel, Beyonce, Chuck Berry, Gavin DeGraw, Edwin McCain, Meatloaf, and Barry Manilow. His unique and soulful voice also landed him a number of National Anthem performances for the NFL (7), NHL (12) and 2 Monday Night Football appearance, where he sang the National Anthem in front of over 80,000 football fans. A high-point in his career was his commission by the NFL to write a Buffalo Bills tribute song.
Tom has since recorded 4 CD’s and had an original song “One More Whiskey” go #1 on the Radio & Records chart. He’s toured over 200 U.S. cities and 9 countries throughout Europe, Asia and Central America. You can currently follow him as he travels the globe playing music and looking for adventure in weekly episodes on http://backstagepass.tv/
Even though Sartori’s music and travel schedules are full, he makes time to give back to the communities that have been so good to him over the years… This past summer in Buffalo he helped raise money for organizations like Roswell Cancer Institute, Champs Against Bullying, and Alzheimer’s research. In Tampa, Florida (where he currently lives), Sartori sits on the Board of Directors of Big Brothers Big Sisters.
A 7-Time recipient of NY Music Awards Top Solo Artist of the Year, in 2014 Tom was given a “Special Achievement Award” at the Buffalo Music Award for his work in the entertainment industry over the past 2 decades. He is currently working on his 5th CD, which will have a country vibe. All his music is currently available for download on iTunes and Amazon.
