Heavy Electric Blues from the Lou!
Since the age of eleven, Tony has been infatuated with the sound and feel of the guitar and the positive vibe that resonates from its strings. From a very early age he was fed the music of the blues greats like Buddy Guy, Freddie and Albert King, Albert Collins, Muddy Waters. Soon that expanded to guitar legends like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughan. With his group, The Tony Campanella Band, all of his influences come together to produce heavy hitting but soulful music that can't be described as just Blues. The band has shared the stage with the likes of Kenny Wayne Sheppard, Walter Trout, Mike Zito, Indegenous, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Etta James, Shamekia Copeland, Bernard Allison, Micheal Burks, as well as British rock legends Deep Purple, and Robin Trower. The band is also one of the three founding groups of the St Louis annual Tribute to SRV, which continues to sell out The Pageant Theater every year. With newcomer Nick "Young Gun" Collico on Bass and Terry Melton on drums, they form a group that truly lives up to the moniker "Power Trio".
