Tony Soul Project News Fourth of July Edition
Before we give a report of last & this weeks happenings, we must take a moment to let you know of a situation regarding our reserve sax player, Marty Phillips. Marty messaged me early last week, saying he was feeling ill and probably would not be able to fill the slots we had open for him. Come to find out, Marty has serious heart issues which are ongoing and being treated for as this is being written. We wish nothing but continued progress for Marty but the road ahead is going to be a long one. Marty, Tony Soul Project is pulling for you brother.

On anther note: TSP would like to congratulate Alexandria Bianco for joining the hot Wedding Band “THE PULSE of BOSTON”. Together with her other activities, singing in nursing homes, a part of The Big Swinging Thing, her own acoustic & electric bands, leaves very little time for TSP. We welcome her whenever she is available but the dates may be few and far between. We wish Alexandria all the luck in the world from her big brothers in The Project.
