Dr. Tom Bio:
Dr. Tom was born and raised in Connecticut and began playing guitar at the age of ten. He played in many bands during his high school years which culminated with summer gigs at Browns Hotel in the famous Catskill resort area of New York. During and after his college years he played in a band called Sneakers which played many venues around New England. The band opened for James Cotton Blues Band and Taj Mahal to name a few. Sneakers also did two month long tours in the U.S. Virgin Islands in the early 80's. Tom spent the next approximately twenty years raising a family, playing Rugby on the U.S. Eagles rugby team, going to chiropractic school, starting and operating a chiropractic practice, and being blissfully married to his lovely wife Claire. In 2005, after not playing music for twenty years, Tom joined together with his good friends Bob McCabe and Steve Madzerous and formed the band Boomerangs which has been playing around the Tidewater area. Tom met Dr. Wes in 2006 and they played a couple of gigs together over the next few years. In 2009, they became more serious, started calling themselves Pairadocs and have been playing extensively throughout the Tidewater area and Northeast North Carolina.
