Tom Boates (trombone, vocals) - Tom has been active on the Connecticut jazz scene for a number of years and has toured extensively with the Hot Cat, Hot Jam, and Wolverine Jazz bands. On Friday nights Tom can be seen and heard regularly with the "Jazz All-Stars" at Bill's Seafood in Westbrook. As a career music educator and band director (formerly in Holyoke, Mass, now at Guilford High School in Connecticut) Tom is uniquely qualified to deal with the rest of us. Tom's playing, singing and arranging talents are valuable to every band.
