This Tuesday at 7pm Klekolo is lucky to have Tom Burgess come perform for us!
At 33 years old, Tom Burgess is a weathered veteran of the New England music scene. He has played in all corners of New England, from Maine to New York, and as far south as Ft. Lauderdale.
Tom now plays mostly in Rhode Island and CT, delivering a blend of Americana and Folk music in his songs. Some of his influences include The Band, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, The Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton, and more.
His voice has been described as a blend between James Taylor and Eric Clapton.

“Burgess’s vocals are a cross between James Taylor and Eric Clapton. His lyrics will remind someone of Matthew Sweet, and his music puts one in a very relaxing state.
Burgess’s performance was a relaxing experience. Not only did he play original songs such as “Fall Time in a Cabin,” he also played his versions of songs from The Beatles and Otis Redding.
Besides his own music, one of the highlights of the evening was a Pearl Jam cover. Not many people can get away with covering Pearl Jam, but Burgess not only covered it, he turned “Better Man” into a beautiful folk song.
If you want to kick back and relax, go see Burgess. His music has an effect that will put in you a very comfortable state that will wash away a hard day. “
