Tom DiMenna Sings Gordon Lightfoot
Location: 181 State St, Portland, Maine 04101, US
7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Tom DiMenna is a singer/songwriter based in Maine. He released his debut album, “You Know Me, My Devil Says” in 2020. His review of Cat Stevens’ greatest hits sold out opera houses along the Maine coast in 2021, and he’s now touring a review of Gordon Lightfoot’s classic tunes in New England.

A little more about Tom: “I’ve been playing guitar since college, where I was a lowly, hand-signaler on the football team. I played a year of semi-pro football for the Bologna Warriors in Italy. The experience of quarterbacking an Italian Football team was pretty funny. I spent the next decade working on a movie about it.

Along the way, I studied at Second City and other improv schools in Chicago, L.A., and New York. One of the sketches, where I played the ghost of Telly Savalas doing a lounge act, became an off-broadway show. It ran for a few years before I relocated with my partner, Lauren, to focus on music in Maine.”

Come get your friends together and experience a night of Gordon Lightfoot’s classic tunes performed by Maine-based singer/songwriter, Tom DiMenna. The evening will be packed with nostalgia, storytelling, and fun music. You may even be moved to sing along, or at least hum! DiMenna’s impressive vocal range and guitar style have been perfected with decades of stage performances. He has been entertaining audiences with his tribute show up and down the Maine Coast and now he’s coming to you. Now is your chance to see what all the buzz is about. The legend lives on!

“Don’t miss Tom!”
