Self-taught on the guitar, Tony has been an integral part of the central Iowa music scene since the mid-1960’s. It all began with The Echo’s Five: “We played at popular places like The Clique, The Place, The Mousetrap, The Val Air Ballroom, the original Roof Garden Ballroom at Lake Okoboji and TeenTown at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.” Through the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s, Tony played in groups loved locally and known regionally such as the Cavaliers, The Flight and Sam Salomone and the Spy Boys to name a few. In the mid-1990’s, Tony teamed up with saxophonist extraordinaire Don Jaques, playing their way up and down Court Avenue. Jazz thrived along the avenue, at venues such as The French Quarter, Spanky’s, Julio’s, and Tony’s “beloved” Nacho Mammas.
