Im Rahmen unseres diesjährigen #PINKTOBER laden wir herzlich ein zum Tommy Tutone Konzert. UM SPENDEN WIRD GEBETEN (zugunsten von Susan G. Komen e.V.) *** Tommy Tutone, 867-5309 . . what’s in a number ? That jangly, guitar intro, those four familiar chords in the verses, that phone number … it’s instantly recognizable as one of the best pop/rock singles of the 1980s – Tommy Tutone’s 867-5309/Jenny. The 1982 release of the catchy single 867-5309/Jenny (from the album Tommy Tutone 2) – coincided quite conveniently with the advent of MTV. The video for 867 featured Heath and Keller battling over a blond beauty in a tavern. The hooks in the song’s intro and chorus were undeniably infectious. The tune became the band’s biggest hit. In 1982, it hit number four and went gold. Their second MTV hit video, Which Man Are You?, was a parody of TV commercials featuring a split-screen study of 2 young couples, with Tommy Heath playing a Midwest everyman type. VH1 recently featured 867-5309/Jenny in its 100 Greatest Songs of the 80s (coming in at number four). Today, the song is more popular than ever, played thousands of times venues every night in bars by cover bands, in dance clubs as remixes, and in concert halls and stadiums by big time rock acts like Blink 182, The Goo Goo Dolls, Less then Jake, and even country superstar Keith Urban. So Tommy regrouped with himself front backed by bassist/singer Jimmy James, lead guitarist, and hit the road. In 2005 he appeared, alongside Vanilla Ice on a network television show called “Hit Me Baby One More Time”. He has been releasing a constant stream of Internet albums, of new and old recordings “I write and play music for three reasons: to say the things that can’t be said without music, to have fun, and to make people dance.” Tommy “Tutone” Heath 2014 Tommy Tutone performs as an acoustic duo.
