Happy New Year From Tony Soul Project

2015 was quite a year for the Tony Soul Project. We expanded our base to include the North Shore of Boston, Milford, MA area and some on the South Shore. We added some new rooms that are able to accommodate our ever growing dance squad. We had a ball!!! We look forward to 2016 as another opportunity for expansion and development. We seem to have a different band on stage every night but it just shows the amount of interest other musicians/singers and friends have in what we are doing. Thank you all from the bottom of Matt’s bacon. (2015 Employee of the Year)
