The Big Easy in Buffalo presents Tom McDermott The Historic Colored Musicians Club Doors 7 pm, Show 8 pm FREE! (Donations for the artist welcome and encouraged). About Tom: Tom McDermott is one of New Orleans' premiere piano players and composers. He grew up in St. Louis, where he earned a Masters' Degree in Music, wrote music journalism for the morning paper, and soaked up the sounds of ragtime and traditional jazz that flourished there in the 1960s and 70s. In 1984, spurred by his love of James Booker, Professor Longhair and Dr. John, he moved to New Orleans, a trip enabled by a gig at the World's Fair. Tom is known for his eclecticism, and is just about the only New Orleans pianist to stretch from the mid-19th-century music of Louis Moreau Gottschalk to the funky New Orleans piano today. He has a great love of Brazilian music (17 trips there so far), the Beatles, European classical music, early Duke Ellington, and much more.
