Friends of Tom plays a high energy mix of folk, blues, country, rockabilly, and classic rock with a little honky-tonk for fun. It’s pure Americana with a pinch of back-woods, a smidgen of back porch, a dash of delta, with sprinkles of twang. Their sound incorporates an interesting mix of instrumentation using mandolin, harmonica, stand up bass, telecaster twang guitar and powerful soulful vocals with an occasional yodel for the WOW factor that distinguishes them from their peers. When you hear the boot stomping you know Friends of Tom is going into high gear. Friends of Tom perform as a duo, trio, or full band.
“Friends of Tom” performs at popular night spots and festivals through out the Lehigh Valley. Liz Younger provides powerful soulful vocals while Chris Younger furnishes a steady groove on guitar, adding harmonica and mandolin as well. Dale Yoder adds the bottom end on upright bass, and Frank Z. bangs the skins. ”Friends of Tom” exhibit their musical experience in their genuine execution of each and every performance.
