Tony Gallo (bass/vocals): Tony has been singing and playing music since 1979. Taking a bit of time away from music to raise a family in late80's/early 90's, Tony soon found out about some local musicians playing at a blues jam and that lead to studying jazz standards and getting back into music- eventually full-time.
