Respected by his fellow musicians, Tom Diecidue has a unique guitar style mix of hard core jazz, intense rock and soulful blues. He captivates his audience with gifted fingers that pull off riffs that can only be compared to guitar greats. But it’s not just his fast fret work that mesmerizes the audience. Tom Diecidue focuses on melodic phrasing and unique musical arrangements that set him apart from the others.
Having played for both Pennsylvania Governors Ed Rendell and Tom Ridge at the Capital several times, Tom Diecidue has also played for a wide range of audiences at various venues, including festivals, bars, and corporate and charity events.
In 2004 Tom Diecidue won the Guitar Center’s Guitarmageddon competition for Central PA and moved on to Ohio. Loving his uniqueness and creativity such charities as For Kidney’s Sake and the United Methodist Home For Children backed his musical creativity by selling his Christmas CDs for fundraisers in 2004 and 2006.
Performing, Tom Diecidue lights up the stage, but off-stage his creativity is off the charts, creating, producing and recording songs with bands including The SpoonDogs, Bad Press, Psycho Delicate and The Starving Musicians. Tom Diecidue is currently producing and performing original rock with a hint of jazz overtones. Although many of Tom Diecidue’s greatest songs are guitar-based instrumentals, he adds Diane Taitt’s sultry vocals to the mix to create a sophisticated blend of music. Taitt’s clear, passionate voice, coupled with charismatic drummer Tony Diecidue, adds definite texture to the jazz songs. Third generation musical professionals, the three siblings have a chemistry that is evident in their performances. Providing a mixture of cool original tunes and great standards done in unique arrangements, the Tom Diecidue band makes these songs seem new and fresh.
