Rock For Tony

05/14/2013 11:01AM ● Published by Robin Linn

I first met Tony Patler when I was publishing DESERT RHYTHMS in the nineties. My first cover story was Kal David & The Real Deal. Tony was featured on the cover of DR in 1996 and I tagged him "The Groove Meister". Tony has had an illustrious career both locally and internationally touring most recently with Dave Mason. Dave and a host of amazing talent will appear Sunday, June 2nd at the ROCK FOR TONY benefit to raise money for medical bills Tony and Karen racked up when Tony underwent a series of life saving surgeries this past year.

The music will be amazing and so will the experience. The lineup in itself is enough to draw us all out to support Tony and Karen in their time of need. One of the things I love about the music community I live in is the way we all rally around each other when it's time to help out. Join Bobby Nichols and I on June 2nd as we go out to take in a day of  world class music. When Tony jumps on that Hammond B-3, there is just nothing finer and I wouldn't miss it!
