For more than 15 yearssince he was a teenage bass phenom with hip-hop/funk-rock act Epileptic DiscoTOM APPLEMAN has been a tireless journeyman musician, playing onstage with everyone from the Drifters to Robbie Krieger of the Doors to the Aerosmith tribute band Draw the Line. He has toured Japan, celebrated Superbowl victories with Kid Rock and been fired by teeny-bopper star JoJo.
But Appleman generally played songs written by others, and he rarely sang except for back-up. Then last year, Appleman started writing and recording his own songs in which he sang and played all partspiano, electric piano, guitar, drums, and, of course, bass.
Best described as a mix of mellow pop and heartfelt rock 'n' roll, Appleman's sound often evokes the best elements of well-written 1970s soft rock and R&B. His flawless, seemingly effortless musicianship blends charmingly with honest lyrics and raw, naked vocals.
Special guest Joseph Kenneally (of THE SURVIVING KENNEALLY'S) opens the night with his personal take on bluegrass infused folk rock.
