Big Tone Torres
I caught Big Tone playing with the great blues band “Honolulu
Slim” a few years back, and I knew that at some
point I’d have him in the band. He is one of the few guitar players
that could thrill me as a 3 pc. band for three sets. His attitude,
choices, soulful style and his raw blues energy along with very
capable vocals will carry his career far. He joined the D.C.
& Co. Family about 3 years ago. He and Mike Bitts on Bass
debuted the same night and from the first hit, they sounded like they’ve
been playing with us forever. Big Tone’s passion is “Punkabilly”
Though you won’t catch that with us he is putting a project together
featuring that. (Stay tuned) . He’s also a good writer and I featured
his original “Move It On Down The Line” on our “Ain’t That Somethin’”
album. If a smart record label doesn’t pick him up soon, I’ll
eventually produce, record and sell a Big Tone Torres CD.

Ibogaine session, later, (he's still
with D.C. & Co.) Tony Torres, is finally doing what he was born to
do, rock it Tony Torres style. Please visit his website!
