Tony Vani and the Holy Blues Band
940 Bonisteel Rd, Trenton, ON K8V 5P8, Canada
Tony Vani has been making music in the Belleville area for decades. Folks in the music community know him as a versatile performer, cranking out blues and classic rock with the Stir, gospel blues with Tony Vani and the Holy Blues Band, solo performances and some work with slide guitarist Kenny Pauze.
“Tony is a respected singer and guitarist, but it is his harmonica playing that really grabs me by the throat with harmonica lines that seem to emanate from the depths of a troubled soul. The best description for his playing is ‘authentic.’ I hear flashes of Charlie Musselwhite and the immortal Little Walter in some of his playing.” – David Reed, Belleville Intelligencer.
