Songs at 75
Songs at 75 celebrates a milestone birthday with songs from 1979 to 2020, from Tom's musicals, revues and cabarets. His goal has always been to tell stories in song, with an urge to satirize the world around us, face serious issues and poke fun at ourselves. Tom is influenced by queer activists, friends of all stripes, what's in the news, challenges, setbacks and victories. There are about 250 songs in his catalog. They are his babies and his autobiography. Tom will let them do the story-telling with a few ad libs, a few lies, a few surprises and a few thank-yous along the way.

Performances on Fri, April 17 and Sat, April 18, 2020, at 8:00

   Proceeds benefit Arcila-Adams Trans Resource Center

Weinberg's music is catchy and expressive. He is a lyricist of extraordinary talent. - Douglas Keating, Philadelphia Inquirer

The romantic songs are every bit as uplifting as the satirical songs are bitingly funny. - Gary L. Day, Philadelphia Gay News

Refreshingly clear-headed and wide ranging, composer/lyricist Weinberg knows how to laugh at human follies, how to think and how to reach the heart. - Arthur Friedman, Boston Herald

A highly talented songwriter, hashing out issues via wonderful lyrics and melodies. - Tommi Avicolli Mecca, First Hand

A spirit of cheerfully assertive militancy tempered with humor and musical savvy. - Stephen Holden, New York Times

The warm heart of an old-time hoofer and the big city brains of a Talking Head, anyone, gay or straight, will feel terrific all the way home. - Dan Geringer, Philadelphia Daily News
