About the Tom Ingram Band
Tom Ingram Band
Known as New England’s rock chameleons given their broad range of music, the Tom Ingram Band has been covering the best of rock’s popular hits and deep cuts since 1999.
Frontman/Vocalist/Guitarist Tom Ingram, Bassist/Vocalist John O’Boyle, and Drummer/Vocalist Tim Smith (joined 2016) are the powerhouse trio who deliver a sound far bigger than the average band. Whether they are rocking the small stage of a tavern or dominating larger corporate, collegiate or festival venues, their bold catalog of tunes - shifting from the classics of the 60's to the modern artists of today - ensures fans will never see the same performance twice.
Lesser known is the band’s ability to spin off into full tribute shows. For 5 years, along with former drummer Chris "Critter" Ryan (departed 2015) and local guitarist Seth Fleischmann, the band performed under the name of Presence - a tribute to the music of Led Zeppelin. From studio to live versions of Led Zeppelin’s music, the group delivered the most detailed and accurate representation of tunes from all phases of Zeppelin’s career.
In February 2013, the Tom Ingram Band embarked on a new tribute to the music of The Beatles. With former drummer Chris Ryan and special guests, Chris Piquette on guitar and Tom Kokonowski infusing their percussion, they premiered for a sold out performance at Crestview Country Club. Rave reviews from fans encouraged the band to join forces with local guitarist Joe Boyle and percussionist Tom Kokonowski to perform two more tributes to The Beatles under the name Silver Hammer. The shows included a thorough cross-section of Beatles' hits and deep cuts from all periods of the Beatles' career, as well as select solo material from McCartney, Lennon and Harrison. Silver Hammer's last performance in February 2014 celebrated the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles arrival in the United States.
Voted Valley Advocate’s Singer/Songrwriter of the Year in 2005 and 2006, Tom Ingram has recently been in the studio cutting original tracks for a new album. His previous three albums - The Deep End, Speed of Life, and Leave the World Behind - are available for digital purchase on CD Baby, iTunes and Amazon.
