We also offer Networking Opportunities, Master Classes, Workshops and other events with world-renowned producers, songwriters and musicians within all genres of the music business. Many people aren't provided the opportunity to really #raisethelevel within themselves musically. I feel it is my calling as a teacher to help each student achieve that goal. I am blessed to have receivd so many students of all ages and levels of ability, and to see the enthusiasm and confidence grow in a student. It is the best reward to all the hard work I do as a teacher. The relationships formed and fostered between the students, their families and myself, and the student and I, is such a blessing and teaches me so much more about who I am as a teacher and artist, as well as what my full potential is. I love each and every one of them!!!!

  • Tom Bender Music ~ Pro solo show ~ vocalist/musician/entertainer

    (12 reviews)

    Tom Bender got the Best Solo Act in 2014 in the All WNY Music Awards. Tom Bender is a full-time vocalist, musician and entertainer with over 35 years of domestic and international performing experience. He has performed on stages in front of tens of thousands and continues to do hundreds of shows every year with his solo act, assorted local projects, and with the internationally known, Nik Entertainment organization. You will be amazed at Tom's diversity and his ability to entertain in almost any setting. Clients constantly comment on Tom's interaction and candor with the audience and his outstanding vocal ability. Tom Bender's Flying Solo Show is a unique one-man entertainment experience that is adaptable to your venue and musical needs. The show is regularly performed everywhere, from adult care centers to biker bars and tourist settings. You are able to select the style of the show, and you can also select the music you would like performed. There are hundreds of songs to choose from that cover many possible themes. For example are classic rock, new country, golden age/crooner, decade themes, or whatever you may be able to imagine. Tom is also an expert at analyzing the audience he is performing for to provide the perfect mix of tunes if no particular theme is desired. The solo show uses a very compact Bose tower sound system, so you get maximum quality, and there is a minimal space required. Setup and tear down are quick and easy, so there is minimal disruption for other events to carry on unhindered. Crooner/Golden Age Tom performs this style show regularly at over 50 adult care facilities and functions. He is regarded by many to be the best entertainer in the circuit, and the fact that he is rebooked at every venue provides valid testimony to such. Crooner shows feature a wide range of musical styles, and during these shows, you can expect to hear classics that traverse the musical landscape from the 1940s until now. Clients frequently comment about how appropriate the song selection is as well as the energy that Tom brings to his performance. Tom's diversity and flexibility also make him perfect for special events (open houses, holiday parties, wedding ceremonies, studio work, live projects, etc.), where you can showcase the professional talent that you provide for your clients. Classic Rock/Pop and Country These shows are very popular at private parties, corporate functions, charity events, local watering holes and restaurants. Tom has performed at national chains, professional sports arenas and tourist areas, and his show is any type of mingling function or sit-down entertainment venue. The set list for these shows can consist of just about anything, and Tom is an expert at analyzing the crowd to supply just the right mix of tunes. You can also architect your own style show if you have a theme. Tom has years of experience in leading open mics too, so if there happens to be musicians or singers in the audience, they are frequently invited up to perform if the situation is right for those opportunities. Most times it is also possible to provide a karaoke track for someone to sing to. Crowd participation and involvement are important portions of every Flying Solo show. Performances can be straight acoustic shows or can use full accompaniment backing tracks for full-band sound. Tom is also a representative for Starfield's Productions, a full pro audio recording studio in Buffalo, NY, and a booking and talent agent for Nik Entertainment out of Rochester, NY.

  • The Way Band

    (7 reviews)

    What makes “The Way” band unique? We are not a “cookie-cutter” wedding/ event band that plays the same songs the same way every time. Rather, we are a fun, creative, spontaneous and lively group of seasoned professionals who love to play and love to make people happy. We have a huge repertoire of material from many genres from classic and modern rock to Motown to jazz and even a little country. Typically for a wedding or corporate event, we play jazz or soft-rock during the cocktail hour that serves as superior background music that is interesting to listen to but not too in your face. But when it comes time that people are ready to dance, it’s all about the funk, Motown, rock and boogie that will keep people movin’ and groovin’. The main strength of “The Way” is in serving your event at every moment the best it can possibly served musically. How do we do this? Our decades of experience as pro musicians (some of whom have played in many countries as well as Carnegie Hall and the LA FAME Awards), gives us the ability to “read” the crowd and respond accordingly with the perfect song at every moment. Further, each member of the group also plays in other bands and brings fresh, creative ideas to the table every time we play. So, if you are looking for a real first-class band that is also totally fun and ready for anything; if you want a group that will get people asking “Wow where did you find this band?” then look no further. This, to us, is “The Way” it should be. The video shows the trio portion of the band but for weddings and corporate events we usually add a keyboardist/vocalist and a saxophonist to the line-up. In having this type of flexibility of playing with 3, 4 or 5 musicians, we can easily meet venue and/or budget requirements for any event. We LOVE to play. I personally have been performing since I was 16 years old. I have played at Carnegie Hall, the L.A. FAME Awards, and many other venues. I also offer guitar lessons in the Newfield/ Ithaca area www dot GuitarLessonsIthaca dot com
