Tom Galvin is no stranger to stages and social media platforms. He started his musical career as a touring rock and roll musician. For 20 years, he roamed the country playing with different bands in cities from Nashville to Los Angeles and even sold a few of his original songs to publishing houses along the way. Eventually, Tom returned home to Ohio and earned a degree that led to a second career as a certified psychotherapist. Tom makes the connection between his original music and finding the humor in the most challenging aspects of modern living. As a grief counselor, he often must guide clients through difficult personal challenges. Tom attributes his background as a musician with playing a significant part in his clinical practice providing compassionate care to those dealing with personal trauma.
Gay has been playing piano since she was six years old. Trained in classical and jazz styles, she has worked in big bands, musicals, jazz trios and various classical ensembles. Gay has a master’s degree in piano performance in jazz and teaches classical/Suzuki piano and jazz/improv in her studio in Marysville. She has played across most musical genres and in a variety of ensembles including some rock bands, but her heart belongs to jazz. She heads up the Gay Galvin Trio and is the musical director of the new Yuba Sutter Big Band.
“The ARTrium space at the Sutter Theater Center for the Arts really expands what we are able to offer the community in terms of unique musical experiences,” said David Read, YSAC Executive Director. “Tom and Gay are a powerhouse musical couple, and we are delighted to welcome them both back to the ARTrium,” he added.
The Sutter Theater Center for the Arts is the area’s newest performing arts venue. Come see what it is all about, help support live music in the community and enjoy these very gifted musicians.
