Wishbone Monthly Residency Shows & Mailing List Coming Soon


If you are wondering “Where can I see Tommi Play… he doesn’t update enough” never fear! I am in the process of finally putting together a long-delayed/promised official mailing-list. Details soon of how to opt in/out.

For live shows I always have a monthly residency at Wishbone North (3300 N Lincoln Ave; north of Belmont @ School St, near the Whole Foods on Ashland). I play every THIRD THURSDAY 7pm-9pm. There’s no cover charge. Sometimes I feature a special guest; sometimes I hog the night to myself. The shows are very special to me & I try to make each one different. It’s really a great listening room and they have great food & drink there.  For my next residency show on Thursday March 16th I will have Old Town School’s own Tom Ryan join me. On Thursday April 20th I will be joined by percussionist extraordinare Tim Mulvenna. On Thursday May 18th my guest will be the great up & coming jazz guitarist Andy Pratt.
