Special Blend

Since 1980!

Tom was born into a very musical family starting with his grandfather Austin, followed by his father and his brothers. Getting his first guitar at age 10, is grandfather taught him his first basic chords. Tom followed the family tradition and began performing professionally in 1968, often performing with his dad on stage. The rest is history!
