Tom and Edie love the Memphis Bop Club and use every opportunity to promote MBC and to preserve the style of dance known as the Bop. Tom is one of the club’s founding fathers and has been involved since 1987. Edie has been an active member since 1991. They have served tirelessly on numerous committees, as board directors over the years, and as DJs for MBC and sister ABA clubs out of town events. The MBC event Casino Royale was Tom’s brain child and Edie has worked beside him to make it a success. Tom, at the time of nomination, had served as president of the National Association of Rhythm and Blues Dee Jays for over 4 years. "Boppin’ Tommy’s" and "Rockin’ Edie’s" involvement and enthusiasm for more than two decades is a testament of their dedication.
