THE TOM PROCTOR BAND
Start with a song from the heart, add a style that reminds you of Garth Brooks, George Strait, Charlie Daniels, Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash. Throw in some killer guitar leads, a thumping bass, world-class drums, kicking harmonies, and an Outlaw Country voice that reaches down deep into your soul and makes you feel like you just came home. Then get ready to laugh, cry, remember good times, clap, dance and tap your toes, because the Tom Proctor Band is going to sing you a story.
Tom Proctor, a well-known actor, was on a film set in Nashville, playing a recurring role as Wayne, the best sound engineer in Nashville, on the TV show "Nashville." That's a lot of Nashvilles. A music supervisor overheard him playing a guitar during the lunch break, recognized his uniquely original talent, and helped launch his music career at songwriting stages all over Nashville. Tom's film fans would travel in to get an autograph at a meet-and-greet, hear him play, and express unexpected surprise at his music being great! Tom still uses his movie popularity to draw audiences to concerts across the U.S. With an impressive list of roles in Guardians of the Galaxy, 12 Years a Slave, Birth of a Nation, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Justified, Baskets, Nashville and many more, Tom's movie fans arrive at his music concerts and are quickly transformed into Tom Proctor Band fans. It's hard not to fall in love with the soulful man far away from home, longing for comfort but driven to find fame in the spotlight and concert crowd. This man will tug at your heart strings whether you want him to or not.
