I am doing a show for Kitty Cottage on Saturday, September 8th in Blue Bell, PA. Info is on my schedule. A box set of my first three albums will be available for $10.00. Half of the money will go directly to Kitty Cottage and the other half will cover the cost of the CD's. You will be giving your money to a great place that truly cares about animals, especially cats. Animals are very close to my heart because they are so vulnerable and all animals need more of our help. I have been working with my wife a lot but behind the scenes I've been doing a lot with my music. In 2013 I will release a live CD that is just me and my guitar.In August of 2012 I spent a lot of time with my friend, engineer, producer: Chris Cachuela, during the day and at night, in front of a live audience, we recorded over 50 originals and covers. I sang and played my Taylor acoustic guitar which sounds so good! We are in the process of a lot of editing. I'm taking the best recordings of my originals and releasing them. The best covers will be featured on my website and will be included in my 2013 press kit. Also in late 2012 and early 2013 I will be taking down and adding a lot of new audio and video to the site so people don't get bored. I will also eventually have new pictures up. My manager and I are working on a lot so please be patient. Thanks, Tony

Happy summer to all. I haven't wrote on the website in a long time so here it goes. My family is doing well and I'm alive and well and doing what I do. I've been helping my wife with her work and she's been helping me with mine. We work well that way. I have a live CD coming out in early September. I'm recording the live CD in Spring City, PA at Chaplin's Music Cafe'. After that in September of 2012 I will start work on my next CD titled, "Daughter of the Island." Thanks for everyone's support.

Thanks for stopping by the site. Crazy weather we've been having in Pennsylvania! My 76ers are doing good and I'm ready for Phillies season! I've got my 39th birthday coming up soon. Wow - just yesterday it seems like I was in the 5th grade way back in 1984! Time bites us hard doesn't it? A very close friend of mine lost his mom and she is on my mind alot. She was a special person. I keep writing music because its what I do, its as simple as that. Come see me live when I'm in your area! Sincerely, Tony

So many things going on that don't have much to do with me. Both my daughters have been performing alot and I'm so proud. My son is inventing new things all the time and is helping his professors at their request. I have great kids. My wife and I went to an amazing Christmas party and went to a great Flyers game. I saw Judas Priest live in Reading, PA and they were amazing!! Today is my mom's birthday and I'm blessed that she's in good health. After work these days I'm writing new material for my next album titled "Daughter of the Island." In the summer of 2012 I will release my first ever live album!! Next performance is in West Chester, PA on December 30th at The Blarney Stone. Stop by! Happy Holidays! Tony

My manager added alot of new stuff to the website - Check it out! Thanks wifey!!! I'm currently working on two original projects. The first one is a new CD I'm releasing in early 2014 titled, "Daughter of The Island." The second project is a live CD that I'm recording and releasing in 2012 around springtime. For the last year I've been battling a back problem but as of October I'm doing alot better! Thank God! Now I can excercise more and play more live shows. I'm very thankful for this, and look forward to my upcoming performances. Happy Halloween to all and thank you for stopping by the site- Tony

I will be in Levittown, PA this Saturday Sept. 10 at Bailey's Bar & Grille, performing with my band 10pm to 2am. After that I'm back in my neck of the woods in Skippack, PA at a beautiful place called The Farm House. The Farm House is right in the middle of Skippack Golf Club, incredible food! I play early at the Farm House, I start at 7pm. All of my original CD's are availible at Pat's Music in Bensalem, PA. If sold out units are always quickly replenished. Also you can download alot of my music online. I will be promoting my latest CD, "SEE THRU ME" heavily over the next two years, but people who know me know that I'm always working on a new project. My next CD will probably be out in early 2014 - the title of the CD is, "Daughter of The Island." The songs on the CD will be about a girl named ELLA and her struggles and triumphs on a secluded island where technology is frowned upon. The story of Ella takes place in the future in the year 2160. Yes, this is a concept album, and this will be my first attempt at a concept album. I'm also flirting with the ides of releasing a live CD. I like to concentrate on one project at a time. Take Care - Go Phillies!! Go Eagles!!

Thanks for checking out my latest blog. Later this month I am releasing a five song EP called, "See Thru Me." The first song on the EP, "Make Them Stay" is very close to my heart. Soon it will be playing as the opening song on my website. I'm also performing in New York, at The Bitter End, on August 15th Monday, as part of SongCircle Music's Original Showcase. The three song original set will be live streamed so everyone can check it out if you can't make it to NY. August 20th I am doing a reunion show with my former band Dr.Cooper. We did a bunch of shows from 2004 to 2006 and it will be fun to reunite and jam. After August is done, in September, I have two shows, one solo in Skippack, PA at The Farm House and one with my new band Turn Me Loose. Turn Me Loose is performing 10pm to 2am at Bailey's in Levittown, PA. on September 10th. I am almost always solo but Turn Me Loose let's me rock out with a band every once in awhile. So, That's everything for now. Check back soon, go Phillies!!!
