Why You Need Tom Collins

Inspired by the retro sounds of 1960s Vegas, the Tom Collins Band sneaks up on listeners with sexy lounge re-arrangements of rock, pop, new wave and metal favourites, for a sultry evening of cocktail swagger and martini shenanigans. It’s your favourite tune… lounge style!

Perfect for VIP cocktail events, elegant dinners, and receptions, Tom Collins creates a lushious soundscape expertly fusing the vintage Rumba, Cha Cha, and Bossa Nova grooves of the Rat Pack era, with popular songs from the 80s and 90s. There is nothing better than watching the look of incredulity on a party guest’s face, when he realizes that gorgeous tune is actually his fave Metallica tune!

The Tom Collins Band has been entertaining Nova Scotia for years with their unique sound, thanks to an amazing line up of truly gifted musicians. Each player has made a lasting impression on the Tom Collins sound. This six piece ensemble is Carol Ritchie on lead vocals, Greg Pretty on lead guitar, John Brennan on bass, Neal Gaudet on kit, Ashley Cates on keys and Tyler Wentzell on percussion.

Tom Collins is named after the classic cocktail of the 1960s, the Tom Collins. Mix dry gin, soda, lime, a touch of bar syrup and enjoy!

“Tom Collins entertained our guests at this year’s CNIB Sense & Sensibility. The band not only came early to set-up, but played longer than their sets were supposed to be! This is so very appreciated in the event world, as flexibility is the key to any successful evening! Their music is perfect for any type of event. It’s soft and catchy, and absolutely beautiful. We also very much enjoyed getting to know the band. They are so kind, and so fun to be around – true Maritime spirit, we felt like we’d known them for years!”
