From the ”Dash Riprock” days of the 1970's to recent solo, duo and band performances, he is driven by his rock and roll soul. From the band “Chateau's” grandstand performance at the Franklin County Fair to the ’Bestbar’ in Times Square, he has rocked across New York State and beyond.
During the years with “The Styles Band” as well as “Tribal Revival” and Muddy Dove” Tommy Gath's bands have opened up for Rare Earth, John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band, Pat Travers, and Ben Orr of The Cars.
In the early 2000s Tommy passed some time in southwest Louisiana learning cajun style and playing along side some of the Cajun greats. Notably were Al Berard, Sam Broussard and Leo Abshire. This period included a week long music camp at the Augusta Heritage Center in Elkins, West Virginia studying both Cajun and Country guitar styles.
Currently Tommy is packing the years and miles into acoustic solo performances with guitar and harmonica and also with long time friends and musical associates, Marc Ryan , Ted Walsh, Sonny B. and the rest of his extended musical family ".
