Tom Sandoval is a man of many talents. Acting, having a whiskey brand and starring in a hit Bravo reality show wasn’t enough. Sandy’s got a few more tricks up his sleeve like building a new bar with co-star Tom Schwartz and getting more serious with his music.
Tom opened up about his plans to PageSix after playing his band’s first — and sold-out — gig at the Hotel Café in Hollywood. He noted that after fighting out the fear of stigma attached to being a reality TV star, he is finally ready to be taken “seriously” as a musician.
Sandoval’s band mostly covers pop and rock hits. Clips shared on his Instagram story reveal that Sandoval and his supersized “Most Extras” band performed covers of Rick Springfield’s “Jessie’ Girl,” Toto’s “Rosanna,” Loverboy’s “Working for the Weekend”, among other hits on their debut show.
Sandoval, who sings and also plays the trumpet, talked to Billboard in 2016. This was the first time he spoke about taking his music seriously. He said he is “very passionate” about it and has plans for a band with a “modern-day Blues Brothers kind of vibe”.
Sandy was previously part of a duo called “Charles McMansion”. Sandoval and collaborator Isaac Kappy released the song “T.I.P.” in 2015. He so-wrote the song and starred in its music video. We wish Tom all the best for his future music career.
