The band itself has been an entity for nearly a decade with various talented musicians taking up one role or many in the ranks of Poor Tom. Poor Tom played in the east coast of Canada for many years before its members went their separate ways. After 4 years, three of the original members, Trevor Young, Andre Aube and Ryan Keenan, returned to reform the band with newcomer Brad Young. The band as it is now has one mandate; to play like they love it--and they do love it. They love it so much that the crowd can't help but love it too. And honestly, who could ask for more from a rock and roll band?

And they are a rock and roll band. Poor Tom doesn't stray too far from the realm of rock, and if they do they still try to make it rock. Poor Tom is currently billed as a cover band with many originals. The guys believe that musical influence is more than just a regurgitation of the song you heard on the radio last week or 80 years ago. Music has an enormous impression on the listener, and Poor Tom is more about the energy they get from music they love. It makes for a livelier show. It makes for good music. In light of their biggest influences, the band relies on simplicity and draws as much energy from that riff or groove or vocal hook as they humanly can. What's the sense in complicating rock when you haven't pulled everything you can out of the simple stuff?
