He has performed in all types of venues and for all kinds of crowds.
Though Tom prefers the term "Sing Along" for his show, the "Dueling Piano" moniker has endured. No matter what it's called, Tom's primary goal at every show is to include everyone in the performance: the audience, staff, and fellow musicians. With his vast repertoire and engaging persona, crowds of all types find themselves clapping and singing along. In the Summer of 2010, Mr. Basler was asked to create an act for a local outdoor venue, the result: The Fabulous Two Man Band. With his friend and very capable drummer, Roger Nottestad, the Two Man Band can now be seen several nights weekly showing crowds a great time.
Tom has been teaching piano for over 20 years. He teaches students theory, proper technique, and piano pedagogy while teaching students how to play piano by ear! He also teaches all styles of music!
