The TomiTom Sho

Bio modified from an article that was written by Laguna Beach Vibe

Tom Licon’s special connection to his daughter Tomi, began at infancy. He could see in her eyes she was gifted, dynamic and a child with a sharp sense of humor. Tomi represents the third family collaboration and they perform every Saturday and every other Sunday at the coveted corner of Forest Ave and Coast Hwy in Laguna Beach.

At the ripe ol’ age of 12 Tomi has been playing half her life. Tom is an artist to his core. He schooled her on scales before chords and they’ve fine-tuned original songs like “Peanut Butter and Classical Jam”, “Simple Song” and “Broken String on PCH” as well as covers like “Low Budget” by The Kinks, “The Weight” by The Band and Johnny Horton’s spirited “Battle of New Orleans”. As the soloist, Tomi’s Spanish Requinto guitar strums a higher pitch than a traditional guitar and the small size instrument fits her to a T.

Tom compares their duo to a Mariachi Instrumentation of Classic Rock. Working so closely with your father isn’t always harmonious. Tomi’s main complaint is that her dad often repeats stuff, however his straightforward manner of speaking is always met with a laugh. For Tom, nothing brings more joy than harmonizing with someone that you love.
