Whistling Tom- Professional Whistler
Whistling Tom is a "pucker whistler" with a remarkable three-octave range. A Key West resident for over 25 years, Tom performed at the Mallory Square Sunset Celebration for many years and appears in the Key West Video Postcard and Key West Kaleidoscope, both short documentaries featuring colorful characters in Key West. He now lives in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The versatile whistling virtuoso entertains publicly at community events, fundraisers and festivals, and performs private shows for senior centers, veterans' facilities and civic associations. Tom's whistling expertise has led to commercial ventures, also. His rendition of "Under Paris Skies" enhances a recent Ford S-Max commercial being televised throughout Europe and the Middle East. Produced by the London agency of Ogilvy Advertising and directed by Daniel Kleinman of James Bond fame, the "Little Birds" advert has universal appeal. YouTube users uploading the video in different languages have commented on the "exquisite music" and "lovely, evocative" whistling.
Tom was voted "Whistling Entertainer of the year 2007" by his peers at the International Whistlers Convention in Louisburg, NC.
