Meet Tony

As a kid, I didn’t feel like I fit in with others because I always listened to 50’s and 60’s music.  My mother loved all types of music so I was influenced by artists such as Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, Conway Twitty, Barry White, Doris Day, Dion & the Belmonts and others.  So as you can see, I like everything with soul and feel when it comes to music.

Growing up, I remember listening to Elvis singing Kentucky Rain and In the Ghetto.  I was a dreamer and would imagine myself on stage performing and thought, “If only I had the opportunity, I know I would sing with heart.”  I was told if you don’t feel what you are singing, you can’t expect an audience to respond to what you are singing.

As a teen, my friends and I would try to mimic the Doo Wop groups from the 50’s.  I remember when, in my late teens, I got my first guitar and played it ‘til my fingers bled.

As time went on, I went through a lot of growing pains with music.  The toughest part was always trying to find the right group of people that could understand what I was looking for in music.  Most people couldn’t feel the soul and quality from the artists I grew up listening to.  I played drums for many years and the opportunity finally came to get out from behind the drums and perform an Elvis Tribute show.  When I put on my first jumpsuit it felt right and there was a feeling of transformation that’s indescribable.  I went from watching Elvis to portraying and singing his songs on stage.

I thank Adonai, my God, for giving me the ability to do what I am doing.  Without Him I am nothing.  And thank you to all my fans.  Without you, it would all be for naught.  I strive to give you 100% at all my shows.  I’ve made many friends and Elvis fans alike.  I’ve done shows and been to places I never would have dreamed of if not for Elvis and all of you.

My dreams of being on stage and performing have become a reality.  I am married to a beautiful woman who loves me and supports me through it all.  I have a hard working and supportive fan club committee who are a tremendous group of people to work with.  And I would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to all of you who are fans that attend my shows.

Ladies Must Swing
Aug 5 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Ladies Must Swing! – An 18 Piece Female Big Band from Madison, WI

 

Our story is about inspiration and encouragement given by lovers of good music and finding out what entertains and makes them happy. Over 21 years ago, LMS became Ladies Must Swing which came from Linda Marty Schmitz, President of the Madison Jazz Society, which also gave us our very first performance opportunity!

The presence of women playing jazz has gotten a lot of attention over the last decade and we are grateful for that. We intend to keep the musical momentum going and invite you to come see us, hear us, dance to us, celebrate with us, and re-live history!

Current Projects:

Sound System Upgrade. It’s fantastic!!

We have upgraded the sound system for our shows. We acquired a state of the art digital system to enhance the experience at the bandshell.

This is a unique opportunity for a sponsor(s) to  have the naming rights for the sound system for a period of time to be discussed. Each performance, each notice sent out, each program guide, and each social media posting will include the named sound system for the sponsor.

This is a projected $25K expenditure that will give us and the sponsor a long term benefit.

Please contact us directly when you are interested.
