Tony Soul Project News

At this time, we should take a moment to reflect on the musicians and singers who have come out for the Project, at a moments notice, and never missed a beat. The list of players and singers is too extensive to mention each & every one of you, but you know who you are and we thank you. Just this past weekend, our drummer, AL CLARK was at a Goomba Wedding in NO.Jersey, so Bobby Gosselin & Steve Peabody stepped right in and killed it. Also, passing through, was handsome,

KEVIN ALEXANDER HERRERA from California. We try to get Kevin to join us whenever he is in town. This show Saturday, at the AOH in Salem, was a cooker. Kev has taken his game to new levels as a player and showman. He’s the real deal.

The thundering roar you hear is the sound of The TSP train rolling down the track. We are focused and driven to provide all of you with a real good time. We love music and will expand our song list to include some of your favorites and some we want to do as well. The band seems to be getting tighter each time we take the stage. We love doing this!!

Last Week

Saturday Night: Black Sheep with special guest CLIFF GOODWIN. Well, it was one for the ages. Cliff is special, we are lucky to have him here, in our area. We worked out this date and everyone in our band stood with their collective mouths open whenever Cliff took a solo (some are up on youtube). We will try to have Cliff back at least every 3 months (the man is very busy). Honored to have him in our presence.

                         (Live, from campaign hindquarters)
The Tony Soul Project loves the United States of America. Where else can you go to join forces with such talented local musicians. Nowhere but the good old US of A. With the current slate of characters running for President of this great land, we feel none of them are worthy of the office, therefor, the Tony Soul Project gives you, the next President of these great United States: 
  • running mate:  ALEXANDER GRAHAM CLARK



What a breath of fresh air, wait Matt’s smoking again. Matt opened his campaign last Sunday on the porch at B-Man’s 140 Tavern to a spirited gathering of musicians, bikers, dancers, singers and bouncers. Matt used his campaign motto:”A Pot in Every Chicken” and the crowd dispersed, touching moment. Please, no questions from the media.

What fun
