About tony and the ottband

Well, that starts with me - Tony Mcgarrett. I've been sitting at home with my trusty guitar writing songs for a few years now. I'd been to studios with a few producers before and had always come out with a load of rubbish but last year I got given the number of this guy Pete in Streatham, went round his place with my little 8-track, downloaded a song, gave him some general instructions and ideas and left him to it. A few days later he called me and I shot round there, feeling excited as I had felt this guy would be different from the potato-heads I had wasted my time and spondulicks with before. He whacked on the song and sure enough - what a load of **** - I thought. So I said, "Tell you what, Pete, do 4 more hours on it... turn that up... that down...". A few days later Pete called again and I went back. He put it on and.. WOW! - that's my sound! - and for the first time I knew I had a song ("Do You Wanna?") and we have not looked back
Once we had 10 songs sorted I stuck an ad in Loot and started putting together a band.

The line-up of the band currently includes:
Kevin - bass, Kingsley - drums, Chris - Sax, Roy and Ash - Trumpets, Linda and Jasmine - keyboards, Karl - guitars, Anna and me on vocals plus extra musos when there's room on stage. Have a listen to what we sound like on the JUKEBOX page. Hope you like it, and if you do, come and see us somewhere LIVE soon.

Thanks,
TT and the OTT Band
