Featured on more than a dozen CD’s, Tom Sancton (a.k.a. Tommy) has toured widely in Europe and the U.S., and has played at major international jazz festivals, including numerous appearances at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Sancton has played regularly at such legendary New Orleans venues as Preservation Hall, the Palm Court Jazz Cafe, and Snug Harbor. In January 2012, he was featured at a gala 50th  anniversary Preservation Hall Jazz Band concert at Carnegie Hall. In 2019, he was named a Preservation Hall Legacy Practitioner.
