Hello Friends, Fans & Family! Thank you all for supporting me with your positive comments. I've been busy these days working on several music projects! Been working with a friend of mine, Gary Huckleberry (of John The Conqueroo) on an acoustic duo act that we hope to take on the road, or overseas, or who knows where. Also have written some excellent light jazz tunes and am looking for a producer (hint hint) - and last, but the most fun, is working with my old Tyger's buddies on new songs in the vein of old songs...or something like that. Take a look at the links on the lower left for our myspace duo site and Martha's new eBay store. See ya, Tony So what does Tony's music sound like? Well, imagine Steely Dan collides with The Carpenters and you have a pretty good idea. Listening to the masters of vocal harmony, like Gene Puerling & The Hi-Los, and the Four Freshmen, while he grew up, Tony was able to instinctively incorporate great vocals into his own songwriting. Believing in the basics - that a good melody holds the song together - his music truly passes the 'hum test'. A brief history: Tony formed a rock band in the late 60's with four other Milwaukee teens and called it Tony's Tygers. The Tygers recorded the tune, 'Little By Little', written by Tony and drummer Dennis Duchrow. The song became an instant hit regionally and received national attention when A&M Records president, Herb Alpert, signed them to his fledgling label. The band was a huge local success and toured the Midwest, South and East Coast through 1970. But by '71, Tony and fellow band mate, Craig Fairchild, were ready to move on, so they drove across the US in Tony's '62 Rambler station wagon to L.A. On the strength of their songwriting and singing skills they were picked up by Wednesday's Child Productions, and began writing tunes for the Flintstones and the Brady Bunch TV shows. Throughout the '70s and '80s, Tony developed his music career. He founded the group, Quiffy, which quickly became one of the top nightclub acts in the L.A. and Orange County area. Tony performed with the groups Ambrosia and El Chicano, and appeared on recordings by Jim Photoglo and jazz great Dianne Reeves while doing studio gigs and working on his original material. Shortly after this period he realized he had a large backlog of tunes that he was anxious to record. By the early 90's he had moved back to Milwaukee, re-formed Tony's Tygers (to the joy of his fans there!) and began to work on his first CD, 'A Hopeless Romantic'. After releasing it in '99, he began work immediately on a second, 'Midnight Dancing'. This one mixes heartfelt ballads with catchy pop hooks, R&B flavors, a sprinkle of hip-hop. Listen to some cuts - there's a link to the CDBaby page on the left! Today you'll find Tony devoting his time to promoting his CDs and website while working on new tunes.
