Tommy Sherlock, the “scouser” in the “Tenors of Rock” at Harrah’s, hails from The Beatles’ homeland, Liverpool, England. Sherlock earned a black belt in karate as a kid and went on to win several trophies, British and World titles. A few broken noses later, he started dancing (Note: Bruce Lee was a ballroom and Latin dancing champion, so it’s all good).
Since completing his training at Liverpool Theatre School and College, Sherlock has been featured in scenes of the cult comedy “The League of Gentlemen” and has performed in various critically acclaimed productions on the West End, including: “Wicked,” “Footloose,” “Hair,” “Mamma Mia, “Fame,” “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Matilda.” Now he stars as one of the Tenors of Rock.
