Tom Hook

Tom Hook is a veteran pianist, composer, and arranger who brings his years of experience in the entertainment industry – from theme parks to riverboats – to any stage he graces. The veteran performer, who is at his best when playing energetic traditional jazz, grew up playing in rock and jazz bands around his native Kansas City, and took to the river as an entertainer and bandleader on the Mississippi Queen, the Delta Queen, and other venerable boats. When not on tour or working with his various entertainment projects, he performs regularly on the New Orleans riverboats with his New Orleans All-Stars, at Preservation Hall, or at other clubs. He wrote the one-man show, “Becoming Jelly Roll,” and starred in the National WWII Museum’s “Jump Jive and Wail, the Music of Louis Prima.” He can also be heard as voiceover talent in commercials, and has recorded music for video games.
