Description

"Tom Gaebel, Germany's No. 1 Big-Band entertainer, brings with his new programme "Licence to Swing" secret service agents as well as many other film legends musically on stage and builds them a monument.

Tom Gaebel is the perfect cast for this roll in any case: he has played the music, to which James Bond would drink cocktails, all his life: a mix of Big Band and Easy Listening, with Swing and the certain "Beat", that lets any agent's heart beat faster."

Since making his mark on the music scene with his 2005 debut album “Introducing:Myself” Tom Gaebel, the man with the unmistakeable voice, has shown that he is here to stay. No other entertainer in Germany combines the slick and energetic big band sound with fluid "easy listening" melodies.

 

Born in Gelsenkirchen and brought up in Ibbenbüren (Westfalen) as the 2nd oldest of 4 brothers his formative years were spent playing music. His early classical music education included "glockenspiel", flute, singing in a boy's choir and violin lessons. At 14 years of age he discovered the drums, at 17 the trombone and finally, in his mid-20’s, he found his true calling as a singer.

 


 

After studying trombone, drums and jazz singing in Amsterdam, he moved to Cologne and founded his first Big Band. Ever since, Tom Gaebel and his 12 piece band have been inspiring and entertaining German and world audiences wherever and whenever they take to the stage. And also on television; Dr Swing, as he is known to his fans, has been a welcome guest for many years on TV Shows such as TV Total, Zimmer Frei!,  Die ultimative Chartshow and Willkommen bei Carmen Nebel.

 

His current album "So good to be me" is the sixth studio album from the multiple Jazz award Winner.
