Tony grew up in Angels Camp and moved to Sonoma to study music at Sonoma State University, acquiring his degree in jazz composition on bass.
Tony crossed paths with Lucas through his girlfriend Betsy and they started jamming and playing house parties. Betsy named them The Tight Suits in an inspired moment and the name stuck! Tony and Lucas together developed their repertoire and sound.
It is fantastic that Tony loves his upright as much as the electric bass, offering the band a deeper reservoir of sound for all occasions.
