Custom backing tracks with a Guest Recording Artist on every song
I've been a vocalist since the 70's singing mostly Jump Blues.
With my backing tracks, I can perform 50's, 60's & 70's Soul and R&B style tunes I love to do.
I started out on clarinet. In Jr. High I finally switched to tenor sax. Today with my full band sound backing tracks, I sing and play tenor sax and dabble on piano.
I perform as a one man band using custom backing tracks with at least one Guest Recording Artist (GRA) on each song. Go to Artists or Listen to find out more.
I started playing in bands at age 15. In the late 70's and after 4 years with The Lamont Cranston Band, I formed my own 9 piece jump blues band called The Bees Knees Big Band. We played 3 or 4 nights a week at venues including colleges, bars, private parties, TV appearances and even performing at the Guthrie Theater. After The Bees Knees I joined The Suburbs, an 80's rock band and then the spin off Chan Poling Band having a great time playing tenor sax.
In 2021 I started building full band custom backing tracks with a Guest Recording Artist on every
song doing old Soul and R&B tunes from greats like Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett,
Jr. Walker and the All Stars, Little Richard, Etta James, Marvin Gaye and more.
I'm even looking at working up more recent tunes that fit that style like Pharrell's Happy.
Tom was awesome. He got the whole room involved. We received so many questions from our guests as to where we found him and comments that he was so good.
I feared bringing Tom's big sound and talent into a nursing home for my father's 90th birthday, worrying he might be "too much" for the setting. But he was fantastic. He read the crowd very well, personalized his performance, played longer than for what we contracted, serenaded my father with his sax, and simply "made" the party. I highly recommend him for whatever type of party you're planning. He will deliver!
He was exactly what we were looking for. It was a 40th birthday party his music was great. He was also very accommodating with children and was able to get them involved in the fun. I had numerous compliments from our guest about his talent.
Tom was outstanding. He made our celebration into a fun filled evening with his marvelous talent. Everyone was dancing because he chose the music that fit our crowd. We are so excited that we found him, and highly recommend him to anyone who wants to have a great time. He mingled with crowd playing his great sounding sax, and invited guests to a sing along. Besides being very personable, his skills as a musician are unmatched. If we have another party, Tom will be our first choice. Thanks Tom. John and Faye Schleter.
He was great! He had the crowd up on their feet and participating, it was really fun party because of him. He was an amazing "one-man-band" - really amazing!
Tom showed up early to set up, was super professional and very talented. We loved having him at our party and would love to have him again. His music is wonderful and he does a wide variety. Big thumbs up!
Tom arrived early and was very flexible upon arrival since the music and dinner were to be outdoors but were shifted indoors due to weather. He was set up well ahead of the wedding and we all loved his music as it is very contagious and got people dancing and having a wonderful time. We would recommend Tom for any event where you really want to party. Bill & Linda, Stillwater, MN
Tom Burnevik was great. We had him play at the Big Louie’s in New Brighton. The crowd loved him and he was a lot of fun.
Thank You . Your time and talent made our event a success. D.L.
Tom was fantastic. He made the party an incredible event. He came with a friend that played the guitar and we all enjoyed it very much. People were dancing to his music. Would recommend and hire again at another event for sure!

I am the Activity Director for Copperfield Hill Assisted Living and Tom Burnevik performed here yesterday. He was amazing the residents here loved him! The first thing I heard when I came in the next morning was when can we have him back. Residents were all up dancing to the great swing music. Thanks Tommy!
Our theme for our wedding reception was an "Elegant Barn Party" and we wanted everything to be unique and an experience our guest would remember. We had over 200 guests, of which most had extremely different backgrounds and diverse music tastes. Tom's quality and style of music provided entertainment that pleased all ages. Throughout the reception, and still today, I am hearing compliments about the band and inquiries on how we found them. Tom was extremely easy to work with and efficient in providing needed information. His sense of humor and thorough preparation allowed for a stress free experience. I highly recommend him!
Great talent, great showman!
