Tony has toured around the planet performing with some of the best R&B and blues musicians ever, including B.B. King, Otis Clay, Bobby Blue Bland, Johnnie Taylor, Albert King, Albert Collins, Etta James, James Cotton, Katie Webster, Z.Z. Hill, O.V. Wright, Buddy Guy to name a few. Tony always knew that he wanted to play drums. As a youngster he played drums with various local bands in Florida until he graduated from high school. Then, after 3 years of army life Tony realized it was time to pursue his dream of becoming a world-class drummer, moving to Chicago in the spring of '77 and began to play drums with several well-known local bands. Before long he met soul singer Otis Clay, joining his band and touring with him for a couple years, recording his first live album in Tokyo, Japan. After a jam session in Chicago club The High Chaparral, B.B. King jammed with Otis Clay's rhythm section and liked them so much that he asked them to join him as his touring band. So Tony became part of B.B. King's rhythm section. Later returning to Chicago, Tony rejoined Otis Clay for another tour in Japan and then went on to play drums for Johnnie Taylor, touring with him for a couple of years before being asked to join Bobby Blue Bland. In the middle of a B.B. King and Bobby Blue Bland tour, Tony ended up playing drums for both artists for the remainder of that tour - and intense two shows every single night. Tony rejoined the BB King tours for over 10 years performing blues music around the globe. In 1999, it became time for Tony to flourish with his own musical creations. Tony now tours, records and writes songs for a multitude of blues artist, in addition to writing jingles for Northwest Airlines and Calloway Golf Company; and is featured in a television commercial for Calloway Golf! His first CD "Out in the Open," received great revues with guest artists Lucky Peterson, Kenney Neal and Frankie Lee contributing their talents to the album. His second album "Travelin'Man" is published by Long Lunch Music and was released in February 2002 featuring guests as the Horn section of Earth Wind and Fire, Lucky Peterson and other great names of Blues.
