Born and raised in Buffalo, NY, Tom Lafferty has been playing drums and percussion for as long as he can remember. Having been born into a music family, his career began at an early age. Tom’s early passion for music led him to play Jazz in school and he continued to play in ensembles throughout college. While performing at local bars and clubs, he was contacted by Buffalo Music Hall of Fame Inductee, Willie May, to perform a local show and has continued to tour and record with Willie’s Blues band. He has performed with various Rock, Reggae, Funk, Blues, Jazz, Pop, Country and Top 40 groups throughout his music career. Tom currently performs with National Recording and Touring group Hearts & Hand Grenades of Buffalo, NY. When he’s not touring, Tom can be seen playing with local country music favorite Christian Kramer and the Backwoods Revival. Currently, Tom uses Wincent drumsticks, Zildjian cymbals, Ludwig drums, and Tama hardware.
Most importantly, Tom loves his family, dogs, and supports local animal rescues.
