Tony Mecca / Press

"There are songs that are just aural wallpaper, chewing gum for the ears. Then there are those special songs that become part of your life. It's a rare artist that can capture the universality of human emotions and experiences and lay them out in a song. Tony Mecca does just that. He reveals the rawness of the city streets and the eloquence of life and presents it as a symphony of the human experience. Of all the many artists I have worked with over the decades, it is Tony's songs that have stayed with me and become the soundtrack of my life."

Joe McSorley - Producer/Engineer

"What keeps me coming back to see Tony Mecca live is his songs. Tony is a solid songwriter with catchy melodies, thoughtful lyrics, and music that transports you to another place. Put that together with a band that plays flawlessly and you have a top-notch night of entertainment. Bravo!"

"I saw Tony Mecca & The Heavy MeNtal Gypsies four times and loved them every time..... their show was always different - they are truly an amazing and unique original band with a lot of twists, turns, Logic and Witches...... rock on you damn Gypsies.......

Joe Diorio - Stogie Joe's

If you're looking for a unique musical experience that is off the beaten path ~ you will love this refreshingly Smart & Fun Band... Seen them twice"

Mark Evans/Jeanne Mannix-Evans - Great Fans

“HELLO, GOODBYE & EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN is the Everly Brothers, Bruce Springsteen and John Mellencamp from a blender, poured into melodic Americana via street-level tales of everyman and his or her tales of love and longing, work, and watching life play itself out. A great slice of Americana!”

“Beautiful east coast Romanticism! "HELLO, GOODBYE …" recounts tales of life/love in the blue-collar South Philly neighborhood where Mecca has spent his life. “Americana rootsy” w/ lyrics reminiscent of Springsteen or Cohen but with a gritty Philly twist. A wonderful effort - Highly recommended”
