Friday, July 8th: Tony Hightower’s Legacy
July 8 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm
SHOWTIMES: 7:30PM AND 9:30PM.
Atlanta based Soul to Blues to Jazz singer, Tony says that growing up with his mother, who raised him as a single mom, meant he went to all her shows and was exposed to many of the finest musicians in town. He says, “whatever you are around is going to be an influence.” A lot of what Tony was around growing up was jazz.
He got his first professional gig at 14 as a drummer and had a record contract as part of the neosoul group 4.0 right out of high school. He toured with the group for the next five years. He said he fantasized that “one day I’m going to make a record like Nat King Cole and perform in a tux holding a brandy snifter.”
Tony’s dream is coming true.
Tony releases his long-awaited sophomore recording, “Legacy” in high fashion–two consecutive nights at The Velvet Note!
