Tony has been playing Drums so long that he can’t ever remember not playing drums. He learned to play the drums growing up in the Concord Blue Devil Drum Corps. Since then he’s been busy freelancing with anybody, anytime, anywhere. His influences are Tower of Power and Frank Zappa. He also digs Buddy Rich, Billy Cobham and Art Blakey. When he isn’t gigging or rehearsing, he can be found in the Delta, water skiing and boating. He has played with such notables as: Full House Band, Frank Biner and the Soul Patrol, and the Armen Boyd Quintet. These days, Tony’s focused on laying it down for the Groove Doctors.
