    I'm in my 50's and began playing professionaly in 1975. For the past 18 years I've been a stay at home Dad/part time worker drone/family man. Now playing close to home near Madison WI.
    Here is the official bio poop:

    Tom Broeske's bass playing has been described as 'lyrical'.

    "My bass is my voice. On a good night, the instrument disappears and the music just pours out. Like singing".

    He credits his ears, more than his hands, for his success in music. A natural musician, his do-it-yourself approach to learning the instrument has resulted in his unique style. Tom doesn't limit his playing to what a bass 'ought' to do. He is equally comfortable in a big band, a 3 pc. power trio, or as a solo bass performer. He has a long history in the Midwest ‘power pop’ scene but has also played the main stage at the Winnipeg Folk Festival , blues clubs in Rome and the best and worst Rock and Roll rooms from New York to L.A.

    Tom has toured throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe, performing with Rounder Recording Artists the Spanic Boys on the Late Show with Conan O'Brien and the Pacifica Radio Network. Before landing a major label record deal, his band Last Gentlemen was picked from over 3000 entries to appear at the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles as finalists in the Yamaha Soundcheck Best Unsigned Band Competition. He has shared the stage with a diverse group of artists including U2, Cheap Trick, Bon Jovi, Uncle Tupelo, Matthew Sweet, Lowen and Navarro, 'Til Tuesday, Billy Idol, the Neville Brothers, the Beach Boys, Jefferson Starship, Funkadelic and Ministry. And America. And The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. And the Bus Boys. And the Waitresses. And Janis Ian. And the Climax Blues Band. And I forget who....


    Ain't worried 'bout a thing, 'cause I know nothin's gonna be alright.:beaver:
