The Story Of Tom cat

                                     Tom Cat Boysen

His career started at the age of 6. His father  was a singer and songwriter and gave him a Rossi Electric Guitar with a 1950s  Fender Champ Amp.  His Father went off to find fame and fortune...

 The amp broke down a few years later and the guitar got put away.  We all wish that amp was still around.

In the 4th grade the school offered music lessons, Violin was the first choice, that lasted about 2 painful hrs. 

Next, Tom followed in his brother Deans footsteps,  tried his hand at trumpet.  Over the next 5 years and 2 schools he won  city wide competitions for his trumpet playing. 

 The allure of singing and guitar would eventually win out. 

At the age of 14, Tom picked up the Rossi Guitar again, borrowed a  Marshall amp, and destroyed the neighborhood, things were never the same!

All of this was taking place his home town of Oakland California, and By extension San Francisco.  Founding member of the San Francisco based band  "The Intruders" Tom Cat Boysen played most of  the clubs and showcases in the 80s and 90's.

It was during that time, Recording and Engineering took hold.

         Thomas Brown,  and new found friend introduced him into the world of the founding members of Journey...  by extension a new band called Merlin. Tom Cat went on a west coast tour with Merlin as a live sound engineer, {sponsored by the William Morris  Agency}  the end of the tour landed him Emeryville California, at  Fantasy Recording Studios. With the temporary job of  assistant  engineer. Unfortunately Merlins album never took off.

  He was invited to audition with the Storm.  A recently dismantled Journey Band, or at least a some of them reformed as a band called the Storm.  With Ross Valley on Bass, Steve Smith on drums, Tim Gorman keyboards, and yours truly Guitar.

 It never took off and Journey reformed. during this time,

 I purchased a 'Prototype" Neil Schon Guitar , with Neil Schons personal signature on the head stock. Bought from Thomas Brown mid 80's.  I still own the Guitar…

   In  1996,  I moved to Tucson AZ.

 Jammed with the Sam Taylor Band with Heather Hardy on Violin at The Old Chicago Bar. Did a few open nights at Berkys  started Broken Glass Studios , performed with various musicians and bands throughout  the Tucson music circuit.

2019 Formed Tom Cat And The Prowlers  LLC

Performed at Rockabillys Grill, Hideout salon,  Chuy's,

Copper Brothel Brewery, Boondocks, Hot Rods in old Vail, The Edge, Club XS, The Stadium Grill, High Five, Famous Sams, RV Resorts and private parties. 

I Still love to perform Live music as much as I did when I first played that old Guitar.

Stay tuned... 

Come see what a lifetime of quality music, dedication  and always striving to being the best, sounds like...

About Us

CRAIG

Craig (CW)

Born in Iowa, raised in Tucson Arizona, CW studied percussion, starting in elementary school. He progressed rapidly securing first chair drummer in Jr. High School band. He went on to participate in the high school music program studying music theory and playing drums and percussion in the concert, marching, and jazz/pep bands. He also played percussion in the high school orchestra.

CW was granted a scholarship to the local community college at the age of 16 (while still in high school), where he helped develop the community college jazz ensemble and big bands in the performing arts department. CW also played in garage rock bands around Tucson in the 70’s, and played in the house jazz band at Gentle Bens in Tucson, across from the University of Arizona in the mid ‘70’s.

The bulk of CW’s music career was spent based out of Salt Lake City where he played in various popular rock and country bands. He has shared the stage with bands as opening act for Ratt, Nazareth, LA Guns, Sammy Kershasw, Brody Buster, Pablo Cruise. He has 100’s hours of experience in the recording studio where he was featured in many original compositions; he also worked as a studio musician at a local recording studio in Tucson.

CW spent 4 years on the road during the early ‘80’s with a top 40 rock/country band working in clubs and bars across the southern and western US.

CW’s strong sense of meter and attention to dynamics helps create a groove that is un-mistakenly the backbone of every band.
