Tom hits an ungodly 174 beats per minute at the end of this performance of the show-off piece Redneck Rag. Previously the fastest I've clocked him at was 162 bpm.

This was Saturday evening at the July meeting of the Mother Lode Ragtime Society in Sutter Creek, California. He is joined by his "Saloon Sweeties": Julia Riley on piccolo and Kitty Wilson on washboard.

The rag is attributed to "Brian March" but we all figure that it's Tom's doing... or maybe, as I suspected, he and Eric Marchese -- Bri & March...
