Biography

Hot live music is not a dead concept! Just a lost one……… Until now!
Want to get up and dance? Or do you just want to hear real live music again? Then there’s only one logical choice: The Tommy Bradford band (T2b). This hot group of young urban talent is as diverse musically and culturally as any you’ll find. T2b’s roots span the scope of classic and contemporary music, even delving into pop and rock influences and redeveloping those songs persona into what the T2b envisions them being.
The T2b is much more than a jazz band, they’re the essence! Their appeal is truly universal crossing class, culture and age boundaries. Staunch jazz aficionados love the T2b’s interpretations of repertoire from master composers such as Gershwin, Jobim, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker and Duke Ellington. While younger and more urban audiences embrace T2b’s respect for modern music by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Sade, Maxwell, Earth, Wind and Fire, Prince and Eric Clapton. And lets not forget the “Funk”! They can and will lay it down at a moments notice like no other!
The band’s innovative genre-melding original compositions are also a continuing surprise and delight to fans of all backgrounds.
Prior to T2b’s formation, each band member has become an accomplished player in the Chicago music scene. These talented players include: Tommy Bradford (saxophones), Will Howard (bass), Jordan Baskin (piano) and Derek Hendersen (drums). The T2B have developed a ferociousness often missed in live music performances. Think of a jazz band that thinks like a rock group, but plays like both….
Now do you get it?
Their desire is to create passionate and innovative music through an exciting yet professional live experience. All while developing their unique sound into a consistently mesmerizing listening experience.
