Concerts come to a halt!
With no one touring or playing local gigs these days, the only thing we have left is live streaming. We're working on doing some Skype guitar instruction/coaching, and a live Facebook/Instagram/Youtube studio webcam to see how I record sessions and demos, so stay tuned and stay safe. Say hey in our guestbook or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Keith touring with Lynyrd Skynyrd
Our friend and bass player, Keith Christopher, is now playing with Lynyrd Skynyrd. Keith was the founder of The Georgia Satellites and co-founded The Thunderhawks with Tony and played on all of Tony's recordings, starting with "It's a blues thing", and including "The Thunderhawks" and "Tony Sarno" (self-titled). Keith has toured Australia with Tony, and they've played gigs together all over the United States.
Keith Christopher is making Skynyrd's farewell tour a really special event, as he's bringing great new energy to that classic American rock band.

Gettin' the band back together
Look forward to working with old friends Craig Krampf and Clayton Ivey. When I had my studio in Bellevue we did a lot of recording together. Now this many years later, we'll be recording new songs for Artist Rusty Gear this spring in Nashville. Muscle Shoals' Bob Wray will be on bass and Pat Severs on pedal steel.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Wishing everyone a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2018. Thanks for your support last year, and I hope to see you all in concert this year. To my Australian friends, I'm really looking forward to getting back there this month. I'll be playing with old bandmates Chris Nable on drums, and Darren Jack on guitar, and new bandmates Al Britton on bass, and Mike Gubb on keyboards.
Tony Sarno with The Harris Brothers Horns
Tony Sarno has toured the world with his bands, ranging from the 3-piece skeleton crew playing at nite clubs and bike rallies, to the 11-piece Event band playing at special events, including
galas for presidents of the United States. "As much as I like playing with the smaller bands, the most fun is having the additional horn section", says Sarno......he continues "The Harris Brothers horn section has played with many top touring bands and we're lucky to have them aboard. Our first gig is at The Fairfield Theater Company in Fairfield CT on Friday Sept. 22 at 5:30 followed by some private events. Hope to come to your town " click for more
