Cheltenham Racecourse Write-Up:
"Tommy and The Fuse have become one of the most in-demand 'event' bands in the south-west after enjoying years of gigging internationally, supporting chart acts and rocking celebrity weddings. Between the four band members, their musical history includes work alongside Elton John, Jools Holland, Cheryl Cole, Ricky Gervais, Lionel Richie and recording at Abbey Road. Their set lists are as varied as their tastes, and when they’re not creating their own tunes, they’re putting their own spin on hundreds of classic tracks by the likes of Madness, The Black Eyed Peas, The Killers, Ed Sheeran, Rudimental, Maroon 5, Queen and Bruno Mars. In short; they play 'whatever it takes to help a few thousand people jump up and down'!
