An L.A. Music Disc Jockey described Tony's harmonic style of vocals by saying "Take Tom Waits… Joe Cocker… Jim Morrison and shake it up in a jar and you get Tony Milazzo’s rare and unique vocal sound. His original music is Rock & Roll and crosses over into many genres with no holds barred! Tony’s “old school” influences are The Beatles, Santana, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, BB King, Elvis Presley and Motown's Funk Brothers. His latest music project is called "TMT" (Tony Milazzo Tribe). He takes his music, as well as the audience, to a whole new level simultaneously, incorporating an upscale R&B feel with some Funk and Blues sounds. This new all-star band of seasoned pros packs a powerful punch! Every place he performs “he is the party.” So prepare for the “live experience.”
Whether he is singing, dancing, acting, doing voice-overs, standup comedy or hosting, Tony’s energy is catchy!
“Tony Milazzo Live” is a must see!
