Biography

The Tony Spinner Band is an expression of passion for music. Nothing less and nothing more. Three musicians who show their love for blues, rock and funk. They’re not focused on fame and fortune or trying to impress, they play music because they genuinely love it. The Tony Spinner Band is about emotion, fun and a good feeling. That’s the reason the band doesn’t use a setlist on stage. The musicians just play what they feel and what the atmosphere calls for. They play everything from powerful rock songs, blistering blues tunes, funky grooves, raw boogie and free form exciting jams where Tony lets his emotions speak through his guitar. Every song, no matter what style, is about groove, dynamics and an open, pure sound. That’s what makes the sound of the Tony Spinner Band.

The leader of the band is guitarplayer/singer Tony Spinner. Born in 1963 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri was he infected by rock and blues at an early age. His parents often played records by Marty Robbins, Elvis Presley, Little Richard and Chuck Berry. Tony decided to start playing guitar after hearing guys like Jimi Hendrix and Alvin Lee in the early seventies. Hendrix, Berry, Duane Allman, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Rory Gallagher and Robin Trower are still his heroes and important influences.

Most people know Tony Spinner from his work as guitar player and singer for other bands and musicians. Tony toured with Pat Travers, recorded and toured with Paul Gilbert of Mr.Big and for the last ten years has been touring as backing guitar player and background singer for Toto. He’s been on all of Toto’s live recordings since 1999 and has toured the world over several times with the group.
