Loreen A., Huntington Beach, CA - Graduation Party on 05/24/2014
We enjoyed Tom last weekend at a casual party for our daughter who had just graduated from college. He is great for all ages.
Loved his music! Sounds exactly like his playlist and is very generous with his time. The 4 hrs flew by. I would definitely have him again! Thank you Tom!
John B., Corona, CA - Public Event on 05/10/2014
Tom is a very talented guitarist and singer. Everyone at the event enjoyed his performance and it just made our function perfect. I would highly recommend him for your next function.
Gary P., Murrieta, CA - Birthday Party on 02/08/2014
Had a very enjoyable evening of entertainment by Tom Buechi. Tom arrived on time, set up and proceeded to play and entertain. Had many comments from guest how good he was and would like to use him for some of their own events. Guest especially enjoyed song choices and ability to request their favorites. Highly recommend Tom Buechi
Greg C., Fallbrook, CA - Christmas Party on 12/13/2013
Tom provided the entertainment for our annual company holiday party at my home for a group of about 75 people.
His repertoire of songs was diverse and enjoyed by all. He was on-time, personable, and talented. I'd definitely recommend hiring Tom and will certainly invite him back again!
Dr. Garrett C., Fullerton, CA - Private Party on September 21, 2013
To be honest, I am not a "music guy" . . .just picked his name randomly. But -as they say- all's well that ends well". He was everyone's favorite part of our 80+ guests party, except for my Wife's Indian food! He even took Requests . . .did well with all of them!

Buechi Wows the Guests!
We hired Tom to perform at our New Year's Party for about 60 guests. Our set-up for him was makeshift, being atop a platform over the spa, but he didn't complain and was ready to go in short order.
Also, it was in the low 50's - very crisp if you get my drift - but he soldiered on without complaint (maybe the hot buttered rums helped?)
and played brilliantly. He had a wide selection and vast repertroir and took requests on the fly. All in all he filled the bill and gave us both listening and dancing pleasure.
We will certainly call upon Tom again, when an occasion arises. We urge anyone looking for a good entertainer to do the same!
Cindy D. - Private Party on June 30, 2012
Excellent, very professional, awesome. The guest loved his performance. He was on time, personal, just a pleasure to have there to help make my retirement party perfect. Thanks Tom.
Tammy T. - Mt. Baldy Lodge - Mt. Baldy, CA
Tom has played for us many times at the World Famous Mt. Baldy Lodge. He is one of our favorites, and every time he plays we get tons of complements about him.
People don't leave while Tom is playing - they sit, relax, have another drink, and listen to the music.
Tom is a true professional that is often rare in small venues like ours.
Tom knows every song (or so it seems!), and plays them with style and grace.
Will - Shopper at The Shoppes at Chino Hills
Tom Buechi is an AMAZING live guitarist and vocalist.
Tom was a great showman at The Shoppes in Chino Hills! When I started listening to his set, he was playing an excellent rendition of Hotel California by the Eagles.
I was so surprised about how people weren't crowding this guy! Truly full of talent.
I got the chance to talk to Tom during one of his breaks, and he is influential, hilarious, and charismatic.
He's a very humble guy and it shows through his personality.
By the end of the set, I had to buy his CD, just because of how great the music was AND how great of a guy he is.
Absolutely fantastic! Thanks Tom.

"Very cool CD"
Vanessa Franko - Audio File - Riverside Press Enterprise - 11/26/08
Buechi blends the best styles of guitar on his debut record.
Songs such as "It's All Right" have Latin tinges a la Santana.
Other tracks are straight-up blues with no chaser.
For instance, "Homewrecker Blues" could be a candidate for George Thorogood and the Destroyers,
one of those "I'm a bad guy" blues songs with lots of solo work and a good groove.
Another standout on the album, "Good Girl Gone Wrong" has a Mark Knopfler kind of vibe.
"Scared" is the big ballad on the record.
Rootstime - January 2009
He was born in Lancaster, New York and already plays guitar from his tenth, but now lives in Southern California and played in a dozen bands in these two states., and for the moment he is still playing in a duo "Tom & Stan". On this debut recording that he recorded , produced and distributed all by himself, he uses a multitude of styles, with his guitar centre stage. His voice is good, although it lacks some power. It is a nice mix of some Knopfler, Tom Petty and Springsteen's vocal styles. Like I already mentioned , Tom surely can call himself a multi-instrumental talent, because he plays all the instruments on these recordings, but it's his guitar playing that attracts the attention. He cites as his great influences Nils Lofgren, Rory Gallagher, Clapton and Santana. Especially the first name seems to have influenced him a lot, not only his guitar sometimes sounds like that of Nils, I even notice some vocal simularities. A very beautiful country tinged "Good Girl Gone Wrong", for example, exudes all the atmosphere of his songs, with a beautiful slide solo in the middle. Also in this debut, some real blues, including songs with titles already stating this clearly: "Homewrecker Blues", "Everyday Blues" and Fairfax Blues ", also some real rock songs like the strong compositions "Scared" and "Living For Today", country rock, like in "Raised On Heartache", and finally Tom shows his jazzy, relaxed side heard in the quiet rippling "It's All Right" and "Let It Ride" that both remind the work of Chris Rea All his own work, moreover, not a single cover. Looks like Tom Buechi (pronounced Bee-kee) can call this CD quite rightly so his own work from A to Z . Like our "do-it-yourself" man Roger always says on TV, "What you do yourself, is always done better." And right he is! (RON)
I've heard Tom's CD and it's as good if not better than most CD's on sale today.
He's extremely talented and this is a great CD to listen to while cruising down the highway.
A lot of variety and that boy can play the guitar.
