The Tony Edwards Band is a new British Power Trio out of East Anglia. Vastly experienced, the band
members many years of gigging and widely varying backgrounds, make for an explosive mixture of
power and virtuosity.
Guitarist and singer Tony Edwards came initially from a jazz background. Performing came naturally,
and by the time he had reached his late teens he had been privileged to work with some of the British
jazz greats including Jack Parnell, Jimmy and Alan Skidmore and Dave Amis as well as holding down a
local club residency.
A love of electric guitar then led to Tony finding a role as a guitarist and front man. In the 90’s he opened for such rock legends as Magnum and the Sensational Alex Harvey Band.
In the last three years, Tony has been the front man of highly respected Rory Gallagher tribute ‘Secret
Agent’, and has taken the show to festivals in the UK and Europe.
He is also a successful guitar teacher
and guitar tech who plays his own handmade guitar on stage.
Bassist Dave Brown is usually better known by his alter ego, ‘Glam Dave’. With many high profile gigs
to his name, he is a seasoned crowd pleaser. Dave is also an accomplished guitarist and songwriter.
Drummer Ian ‘Jaspa’ Woodthorpe is no stranger to the road or studio. Like the other members of the
band, he has toured extensively in the UK & Europe with Hello and Buster James.
The Tony Edwards Band is currently concluding its debut UK tour with supports for Gwyn Ashton,
Joanne Shaw Taylor, Claire Free and former Lynyrd Skynrd guitarist Mike Estes.
