At an early age, music was already seeded deeply in Tim's being. Having older siblings and parents who loved music, there was an abundance of genres to choose from. Tim took them all: 50's, 60's, and 70's music. They all filled his house. Performing at the pool or a wedding reception was a regular occurance. Tim was accepted into SCPA, majoring in ballet and minoring in vocal performance. He san in choir and swing choir in high school.
Some friends in high school were forming a band and looking for a lead singer. Tim auditioned and landed the gig. He worked at Larosa's as a dining room manager during the day and played gigs on the weekends. The shows started picking up from backyard parties to actual club dates. He left the restaurant business and dove head first into a full time music career.
June 3rd, 1983 The Menus were born! The first gig was at Midnight Express in Western Hills. There havebeen many changes over the years including song selection, wardrobe changes, skateboarding, props, trapeze swinging and of course balloon kicking/popping. Name a song, costume or stunt and Tim has most likely done it!
Tim also has another band Curly and the Cueballs which formed in 2001 performing standards in the American songbook. In addition to Curly, Tim teaches preschool music and has a solo act The Goldie Show performing in small clubs and nursing homes.
2023 will mark 40 years in the music business with no signs of stopping. As long as people continue to show up at the shows, Tim will continue to keep the energy level high and make sure the people are happy and well entertained.
