Throughout the 1960’s Tony groomed his regional NY bands playing Rock, R&B, Soul, Gospel, digesting these styles, growing and learning, live performance, as well as recording techniques of this music.
Continuing through the 70’s he blossomed and spread out into the realms of funk and jazz, and even southern rock, and Swing.
