Tom has been a long-time friend of the band, going all the way back to when he first met Bobby and Stevie in college. (That was shortly after the fall of the Roman Empire...) He has served as the backup percussionist for the band on numerous occasions, even traveling with The Internationals™ and The Chico Bavarian Band to Munich in 2007 to march in the Munich Oktoberfest parade.
As of January, 2012, Tom has become the full-time percussionist for the band. Given their long-standing friendships, it's a pretty easy transition for everyone, and the boys are confident that their newest member will fit right in.
In addition to percussion, Tom brings another new dimension to the band; he's also an accomplished vocalist. This will not only allow the band to experiment with some four-part harmonies on their vocal numbers (how cool is that?!), but Tom brings with him some arrangements that the band has never done before.
So the addition of Tom to the band gives The Internationals™ a new percussionist, a fourth vocalist, and an expanded repertoire.
Hang on to your beer steins, folks... this is going to be good!
