Marra & The Saints
A star was born on
April 10, 1955, in Brooklyn, New York. Music has always been a
part of Tommy Mara's life. As a young child, he sang his heart
out while his grandmother played the piano. As a teenager, he
played the drums and sang in a local rock band. Even then, his
vocal ability and stage presence turned heads.
Tommy Mara's brilliant
musical career encompasses several genres of music, many incredible
on-stage experiences, and definitely has made his place on the
Mara's career does not just encompass oldies
music. He has lent his vocal genius to several bands throughout
the years. After moving to Florida, he joined a Southern Rock
group, playing the drums and singing. From there he moved onto
another rock group that specialized in original music. Perhaps
Tommy's farthest stretch musically was when he joined a country
band. Knowing very little about country music, he still left a
great impression on the people he touched.
His next big step was to the Top 40 scene.
He wowed himself and the audience with his vocal ability. That
is when he caught the eye of Kenny Galeano. Kenny was the leader
of an oldies group, The Saints. They were looking for some fresh
talent to front them. After a little convincing, Tommy signed
on. The Tampa Bay oldies circuit hasn't been the same since then!
