________________________________________
Tommy's "One Man Show" sounds like a four or five piece band. He uses two Roland keyboards and a Roland DR 880. The keyboards have built in drum, bass, and rhythm grooves. He then adds piano, tenor sax and vocals to achieve the "Big Blues Sound".

Tommy Burnevik has over 25 years of performing experience. His sax playing style, as a young kid, evolved out of a love for music.

At the age of 18, he was jamming at the local Minneapolis blues clubs. Many great bands were forming at that time and the blues scene was fresh and happening. He would show up, jump on stage and wail on his sax. Tommy was quickly recognized as a soulful blues player with a unique style. Accepted by all the Minneapolis Blues bands, he was on his way.

He then joined The Lamont Cranston Band. He recorded several projects with them including the very first album by Lamont Cranston featuring Tommy's sax playing on great tunes like "Aint nobody here but us chickens". In the course of playing with Lamont Cranston, he had many musical adventures, one of which was a trip to Chicago where he played with Blues greats including Koko Taylor, Sunnyland Slim and Howlin Wolfs Band to name a few.

After 4 years with Lamont Cranston, he formed his own 9 piece swing blues band called "The Bees Knees". His vocal style and stompin tenor sax playing was sure to get you off your seat and on your feet. Recognized as one of Minnesota's top ten bands, right up there with Prince, Tommy Burnevik and The Bees Knees was a guaranteed good time.

He has performed and/or recorded with many groups including:

Howlin Wolf Band, Prodigy, Dean Magraw, Flaming O's, Lamont Cranston, Elvin Bishop, Asleep At The Wheel, The Pistons, The Hoop Snakes, Dan Aykroyd, Kim Wilson, Lynwood Slim, The Suburbs, Soul Asylum, Johnny Lang and more.
