In their annual readers poll, Prog Magazine (UK) named Tom one of the top 10 keyboardists of 2020. Tom was voted number 7, among heavyweights such as Rick Wakeman and Jordan Rudess. The current issue of Prog is available now, worldwide.
Tune in to StageIt this Saturday, December 19 for “The Best of Tom Brislin”, an encore broadcast of highlights from the two concerts for Progstock first streamed in November. It’s Tom, a grand piano, and synthesizer, performing solo in a beautiful empty theater (Union County Performing Arts Center). The performance features songs from Hurry Up and Smell the Roses, songs by Spiraling, and even a few Kansas numbers for good measure.
On November 28, Tom will perform solo as part of the Progstock streaming series benefiting the Bob Moog Foundation. There are fantastic artists performing throughout the month, all happening on the StageIt concert streaming platform.
