Tomar & The FCs is a Funk, Soul and R&B 6-piece band from Austin, TX. Tomar Williams, the fifth of seven children was born into a musical family in Las Vegas, Nevada. His father, after leaving the Air Force, played saxophone in a band, the “Moon Gliders”, and his mother sang in a family gospel group the “Lamkin Five”. All kinds of music filled the Williams household, including many soul records, which had a deep influence on Tomar and his siblings.
In early 2015 Tomar and Nikolas Bouklas (tenor sax) got to talking about a new project. Nick introduced Tomar to Austin based instrumental band “the FCs” with David Earl (keys), Mitch Fischels (bass), Paul Kresowik (drums), and Andy Tenberg (guitar). It was clear from that first meeting that Tomar’s vocal skills and energy were a perfect match for the FC’s grooves. Tomar and the FCs were born. The band debuted in March and, after successful shows in Austin, San Antonio, and Houston, released its EP “Day by Day” in September 2015.
