As singing coach and great keyboard player, Tom is without doubt one of the musical pillars of Abba Fever. He ensures that all harmonies sound flawless and beautiful. ABBA-songs or Soul-classics, Tom can do it all. In addition to his skills as a singer and keyboard player, this all-rounder also excels in writing his own music. It’s music at its best!
When Tom was only 7 years old, he told his mother that he wanted to be a singer. But when he started his education, his dream slowly changed. Instead he wanted to become a true musician and that dream certainly came true! He loves the fact that he gets to wear all those great costumes in every show, just like in musical theatre. His strangest experience during one of his shows, was when the fire alarm went off and the entire building needed to be evacuated! There you are, outside in the cold and rain, waiting to be allowed back in. This is why he always wears his lucky charm: a picture of Rowlf on his piano (the pianist of the Muppets). “This shows exactly how much fun I also have when I am playing the piano”. No wonder you always see Tom making music everywhere!
