Born in Norfolk in 1972 Tom Toggle has been drumming since 1982 and has gained as much musical experience and acquired a reputation that keeps employers calling him back.
Tom is a drummer who plays with versatility and passion for
music, is a team player who can take direction and always gives his all
for the performance.
2012 to Present, Drummer for Piano Factor.
This is a demanding role as each performance is musically different from night to
night. I am required to play the songs that an audience requests, and immediately
provide the right groove and correct feel for any tune, which could be anything from
the 50’s right up to the present day. It also requires listening out and watching for
cues from the two piano players as they may change the musical direction or style
at any time during a performance.
2012 to 2017, Wherry Brass Band.
This is a demanding, chart reading gig where ... I am called upon to reinforce both the
music and the vision of a conductor. This music can be any style from Classical to
Jazz, Rock, and Latin.
Dynamics play a very important part of this style as the entire ensemble (35
players) are playing with no amplification, while at the same time I have to play
with a quiet intensity.
2009 to Present, Super Action Heroes.
This is a rock band which is, without a doubt, the most physically demanding gig I
have. Two and a half hours of classic rock featuring an extensive set list with over
forty five tunes from the 60s 70s, 80s and 90s. I also sing backing vocals on this gig
which makes it all the more exciting, having to balance timing, musicality and
Other Musical Experience.
I have been playing for a long time (Since 1977) and have been working as a
professional since 2010. In that time I have continued to work steadily as drummer
for as many different people as I can, and have continually pushed myself to play as
many different styles of music as possible. These experiences have all added to my
playing skills and have helped me develop as a musician. I continue to practice and
learn as much, and as often, as I can about music and drumming.
