Biography

Tony Scalzo is an American rock musician and songwriter, best known as a founding member of the band Fastball.

Tony Scalzo was born on May 6, 1964 in Honolulu, Hawaii, but moved quite often as a child because his father was in the Marine Corps. Scalzo began playing bass guitar in the 1980s and soon began forming bands. He has three children: Scarlett, Claudia, and Gabe Scalzo.

In 1994, Scalzo left his punk/pop group The Goods and made the decision to relocate to Austin, Texas to join the Beaver Nelson Band. However, he ended up leaving the group and helped form band Fastball. The new group was composed of Scalzo and two of his former bandmates, Joey Shuffield and Miles Zuniga. Fastball was signed by Hollywood Records and began touring the country. Their second album had Top Ten hits in six different countries in the summer of 1998, and the album soon went platinum. Scalzo describes his success as being “a big homegrown thing.” Scalzo also wrote their hit song, “The Way”.
